I took this photo of a coil burning incense in one of the temples in Hong Kong. These coils can burn for an extended period from hours to days and is commonly used by Chinese culture for religious ceremonies like ancestor veneration. (Ancestral veneration in Chinese culture is the practice of living family members who try to provide a deceased family member with continuous happiness and well-being in the afterlife).
