Taken just before some self-important security guy shouted at me to get back behind the railings.

Jingtong revisited

Taken just after the sun disappeared behind the mountains, and just before we were due to catch the train back to Taipei Station via Rueifang.

Victoria Harbour at Dusk

leave a comment »

Bonnie and I took the Star Ferry to Tsim Sha Tsui for dinner this evening. As we crossed Victoria Harbour we could see this awesome sunset towards Lantau Island. I couldn’t take multiple exposures from the moving ferry, so as soon as we docked I rushed off the boat and took this from the pier.

This was taken handheld as I didn’t have my tripod with me.

Dragon boats, Sai Kung

I just had this shot lined up on the tripod when a couple of women and their dogs strolled into the frame.

I took a couple of shots and then waited patiently for them to leave. Unfortunately the tide was coming in somewhat faster than I realized, so by the time they left my tripod and I were standing in a couple of inches of water.

Afterwards I removed my waterlogged shoes and we strolled back to Sai Kung Town to find some flip-flops. But I ended up liking one of the first shots—taken whilst standing on dry land—best anyway.

Jingtong

Jingtong is the last stop on the Pingxi Line (平溪線). Originally built by the Japanese to transport coal, the railroad now mainly serves day-trippers looking to explore the lush gorges and waterfalls of the Keelung River, and the derelict remains of the former industry.

Danshui

Danshui is where Taipei residents go to watch the sun set over the Taiwan Strait. It seldom has a more enthusiastic audience. On a Saturday evening the boardwalk and the Lover’s Bridge are packed with couples and photographers.
