When I stay with my wife’s family in Alishan it more often than not involves drinking copious amounts of alcohol. This time was no different and the sunrise wake up call was less than welcome. We nevertheless managed to get to our sunrise spot just as the sun was peeking over the mountains.

I was surprised I was able to capture this little guy in flight. It was a very dark night, the only light was a flashlight my friend was using to find the squirrels. I used an on camera flash (SB-800) with my 105mm lens. I had my 70-200 but I was standing below this tree, […]

There were two typhoons out in the Pacific sending huge waves crashing into the Cingshui Cliffs 清水斷崖 along the Suao – Hualien Highway in Taroko National Park. I was treated to this stunning display of nature’s power under blue skies.

Not much has changed, they were as breathtaking as I had remembered. Many of the waterfalls are very accessible so they are great for family trips.
