This looks almost European, except that it's really not. I liked the colors and contrasts of this scene. The coloured billboards are advertising a new apartment complex that will be built on the foreground. The name of the complex is typical 'image English' (ie only to show how cool and 'Western' it is): 'The largest Cortille in North Taichung'. Anyone ever heard of a 'Cortille' before?

Star Trek Episode 37. I'm the non-comformist on the right. The diving/snorkelling was fantastic. The variety of coral and sea life in the water around the island is spectactular. If you've never been snorkelling/scuba diving, I highly recommend it - it's a totally new world under the surface. Next purchase: a waterproof housing for my camera!
So a bunch of mates and I visited Green Island which is South East of Taiwan, about an hour's ferry ride from Taidung. It's a former penal colony that has been open to tourists for quite a few years now. It's home to some very beautiful scenery like the shot above and has some of the best coral reefs I've ever seen. A good place to visit if you have the time.
