Tai O, the Venice of Hong Kong. One of the most popular Lantau tourist spots, Tai O is also the oldest fishing village in Hong Kong. Tourists crowd into village shops for dried seafood and local delicacies. .
Tai O is home to the Tanka people, a community of fisher folk who’ve built their houses on stilts above the tidal flats of Lantau Island for generations. These unusual structures are interconnected, forming a tightly-knit community that literally lives on the water. Their enchanting world is a photographer's paradise

Well, this certainly isn't Quebec ;-). This may not be what most people would expect of Hong Kong, so this is an interesting photo. I had a nice day going by boat to a small island (maybe this one, I don't remember), walking across the island, stopping for a swim at a secluded beach and returning from another village.

The oblique line of houses pointing to the sea gives deepness. This is an interesting community and way of living well described in your note. The ligh was difficult for this one but you managed it well as the deatils are quite sharp.

Une très jolie présentation de ce vieux village de pécheur, ces habitations sur pilotis, plein de détails a voir, et bien composer, même avec le ciel blanc, l'image est très belle et intéressante
