Made a quick trip up to Taiwan, not really for photography but more to just chill out, eat and visit the hot springs that abound around Taipei. However, Paveena and I did spend a few hours at the town of Yeliu on the north coast of Taiwan and about an hour from Taipei. Yeliu has some unusual, wave-buffeted geological rock formations which have been etched into unusual shapes by a combination of weather and waves.
Like many scenic attractions in Asia, there are too many tourists – in this case, mainly local, to make visiting the area an entirely pleasurable experience. On top of this, we managed to pick the coldest day of the year with intermittent rain and horrible light for photography. Despite these setbacks, we were glad we went and may return in the summer when temperatures are warmer and the light is better. Certainly, there are plenty of photographic opportunities. The following two images, both converted to monochrome, give an idea of the potential of this site.
