Giant Buddha, Lantau Island, Hong Kong

Standing at 24 metres high this copper statue of the buddha is in the grounds of the Po Lin Monastery. The upturned right hand signifies 'have no fear' while the upturned left hand bestows blessing.

When we arrived the statue was totally shrouded in low mist but quite eerily the mist temporarily subsided for 2 minutes enabling this image to be taken and then it returned.
