More from Miaoli

These are the promised photos from Miaoli’s beautiful mountain scenery and the temples in the area around Lion’s Head Mountain.  I already posted an HDR of some intricate roofing, but wanted to share these as well.

This starts off with a naturally-framed image.  I need to try this more often, I like how it turned out.

  

One interesting thing that happened was an old man at a temple that approached Yuling and I about the fact that I was Western.  He first asked her if I was European, and then realized that I was American.  When she told him this, he got excited and started mentioning “O-Ba-Ma!”

He told her, as she tried not to giggle, that Obama is the first Native American president and that he will help South Korea get rid of Vietnam.

He WAS a nice guy, though.  Even invited us to a temple ceremony, which we unfortunately had to say no to due to the fact that we’d been hiking all day and were exhausted.
