Another trip to Taiwan in Jul-2012.

I am now too lazy to take my large camera. All pictures here taken with a very small Sony RX-100 compact camera.

The first set is 3 of the many blue sky pictures taken in this trip. Note the third pic is taken inside a moving car. The compact camera somehow was intelligent enough to know it's in a less than ideal shooting situation and took 3 or 4 photos and combined them to form this.

First picture was in 九份,second picture was in 澳花公路.

This set was taken in 野柳 geo park. By the time we arrived at just past 18:00, the park is already closed. However I saw some local fishing enthusiasts climbed over the wall at the park exit and went in, so I followed and got into the park.

The priority is to take picture of the Queen's Head 女皇頭. As you can see in the third picture, it won't last very long before the head falls off.

I was among the many who took pictures of the Queen's Head. One guy was there for at least 30 min, setting up the tripod, etc...

More sunset pictures. This time at 淡水漁人碼頭.

(Yeah, I know, the same spot. But the drivers all recommended the same places. This was my 2nd visit, but the first for my family.)

The rocks are marbles. It's amazing that a road is built and maintained through the cut out rock.

There were a few suspension bridges in our hikes. The first on is closed because it was broken at the far end. The second pic was taken in the middle of another suspension bridge.

九曲洞 is still closed since my last visit 16 months ago. Maybe it won't be opened again.
