A timelapse film by Hong Kong photographer Francis So has won four awards at a photography contest in Portugal, walking away with the top prize in the mountain view category as well as being named first runner-up in the timelapse and regional documentary sections and second runner-up in the countryside category.

So, who was competing with 180 other entries from 48 countries and regions around the world, only made the switch from design to photograph last year. His award-winning feature "Seen By My Eyes," first released in summer 2014, takes in the sunrise and sunset at Sai Kung, Tai Mo Shan, Po Toi, Pak Nai and Lantau Peak, introducing viewers to some of Hong Kong's often under-appreciated natural wonders. 

Check out the film for yourself to see what all the fuss is about:
