A wave is caught on camera when it hits the rocks on Tung Ping Chau, an offshore island in the northeastern corner of Hong Kong. Tung Ping Chau is unique island in Hong Kong that is mainly made up of sedimentary rock. Weathering and erosion have great impacts on forming the current landscape and geologic features such as wave-cut platforms and sea cliffs on Tung Ping Chau.
