I’ve had the chance to take a  quick trip to Ali mountain in the central mountain area of Taiwan. Even though the weather didn’t cooperate too much and gifted me with mostly foggy views, I still managed to capture some nice shots.

Here are a few pics of red cypresses, some of the biggest and oldest trees in Taiwan. Some of them are over 2500 years old. Unfortunately they were cut by the Japanese during the period when they ruled Taiwan. Now the whole area is a national park and those trees are free to grow as much as they want.

The rest of the images are on my Flickr album: https://flic.kr/s/aHsm6ny17h

On a side note: I finally had the time to process some more images from Okinaqa, in particular those form the aquarium. Stay tuned!
