Strictly speaking I shouldn't be posting this photo, because it wasn't taken in Taiwan at all and photographically it's not great either. In fact, it was taken off the coast of Madagascar from the window seat of a 747 I was flying in on my way back to South Africa for holiday. A few hours before we landed, I witnessed the most spectaculat lightning display I have ever seen. The entire sky was lit up by hundreds of simultaneous flashes of lightning from a bunch of huge clouds. That's got to be one of the most amazing natural things one can ever witness.
