Skywatch Friday No. 40: Yeliou (野柳)


Yeliou is a small peninsula of rock formation at the northern tip of Taiwan.  Many million years ago, it was under the ocean.  The rock was eroded by both sea and wind, and formed many interesting shapes.  It is a famous tourist destination.


We have not been back to this spot for almost 40 years.  Last Saturday, the weather suddently cleared up and we saw the blue sky that we have not seen for a some time.  We drove around the northern seashore of Taiwan and stopped by Yeliou for a visit. 

 
The direct travel from China to Taiwan has been made easy during the last several months.  The place was packed with tourists from China.  However, the scenery was still the same and very dramatic.  Although the weather was good when we were photographing, we could see at distance a storm was coming.

The green right up to the sea looks remarkable to me. Lovely, lovely shots. The bridge looks to be thousands of years old! Happy weekend wishes from Illinois, USA!
