Hualien County is home to several world-class scenic attractions. In 1590, Portuguese sailors passed by the eastern coast of Taiwan and were so moved by the grandeur of what they saw that they named this land "Formosa," the beautiful island. Since that time, the majestic views of Hualien have come to represent Taiwan.
Hualien is Taiwan's biggest county, with an area of about 4,628 square kilometers and a population of 350,000. The county borders the Pacific Ocean to the east and is hemmed in by the Central Range to the west. With its towering peaks, azure skies, vast seas, scenic valleys, cultural diversity, and friendly kindhearted people, Hualien has become one of Taiwan's first-choice travel destinations for local and international visitors alike.

Taroko National Park
Thank you 謝謝 @downtoexplore for the share
Taiwan's top tourist destination. With its marble-walled canyons, lush vegetation and mountainous landscape, Taroko really puts the formosa (beautiful) in Ilha Formosa.The park covers 1200 sq km and rises from sea level in the east to over 3700m further west. In fact, Taroko is 90% mountainous, with 27 peaks over 3000m
Temples in Taiwan
Thank you 謝謝 @late.ha for the share
Deeply rooted in ancient Chinese traditions that include Buddhism, Taoism and Confucianism, the island of Taiwan exudes peace and spirituality. Taiwan is home to more than 5,000 temples that receive devout followers who pray each day. Visitors may wish to pray, but may also enjoy the ornate pagoda-style architecture of the structures

就這樣 一刻也不得閒的 等了又等
等 Flight Tracker 說已飛但不飛的客機
Spotted this view angle by accident before I actually even own any lens. After a few twist and turns, I think I’m ready to photograph my vision.
Mystical creature occupying modern city, watching over every story of every city corner. Blueish grey overcast sky with a break of orange dusk light, leaking a glimpse of hope.
In reality, through human eye’s 23mm lens equivalent field of view, this framing is only the size of a hand. Under long lens compression, everything is so tight that even the slightest micro shift of camera will throw composition balance off. With tripod locked, I’d still be checking leveling and grid intersect every now and then just to triple confirm.
Then comes perhaps the hardest part, waiting for that window. Waiting for sunlight to break from clouds for that yin-yang contrast lighting, waiting for jet to appear like how flight tracker says it would but don’t.
This Dragon & Qilin faceoff setting with 101 in the background and jet flying over above is definitely Street Fighters scene worthy. 😂
