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.

Jingtong

leave a comment »

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.

Masjid Sultan

leave a comment »

I spent Chinese New Year in Singapore where, as in Hong Kong, many businesses shut down for the holiday, so I had plenty of time to visit some of the city-state’s most photogenic spots, including Masjid Sultan, where the steward was gracious enough to let me use my tripod to take some photos of the prayer hall.

Temple of Saturn

with 2 comments

At the end of February I spent a week in Rome at NetDimensions’ sales and partner conferences.

The conference finished on the Friday morning, so on Friday afternoon I had some time to take my camera for a walk around the Forum. One of the most distinctive structures in the Forum is the eight columns of the front portico of the Temple of Saturn, which is the only part of the temple that remains standing. Herewith some photos taken from the Capitoline Hill.

Roman Forum and Colosseum

Roman Forum and Palatine Hill

Looking towards the Palatine Hill, with the temple portico on the right.

Arch of Tiberius

I believe the structure in the center is the Arch of Tiberius, again with the temple portico on the right. (Update: a commenter points out that the central structure is actually the Arch of Septimius Severus.)
