Members of the foreign community in Taiwan recently started a trend of sharing beautiful Taiwan sceneries on their social media accounts and one majestic photo of Taiwan’s east coast has managed to stand out among others.
The photographer, Trevin Blount, arrived in Taiwan from the U.S. in September 2017. Having traveled to the east coast three times, Blount revealed that he took the photo at the Jen-ching Tunnel Ping-feng Rocks (仁清隧道屏風岩) in Taroko National Park (太魯閣國家公園).
According to him, it’s one of the most beautiful views along the Qingshui Cliffs (清水斷崖).
The stunning photograph which bears a resemblance to “Themyscira” (or “Paradise Island”) from Warner Brothers’ “Wonder Woman” movie, received numerous enthusiastic replies from others who shared their own adventures at Taiwan’s jaw-dropping east-coast views.
One social media user said it was also their favorite corner of the coast, and added that there used to be an older road that attracted photography enthusiasts but was later closed down seemingly due to the construction of a new tunnel or road.
Another adventurous social media user commented that they had swum to that point, but swore never to do it again, as the tides were quite strong.
Many complimented Blount’s atmospheric shot while one deemed it an “amazing and unbelievable view made by nature.”
Trevin後來與The China Post分享，那時他決定捕捉這畫面是因為他先注意到天上的雲朵移動速度非常快。
Blount later told The China Post that he decided to capture the shot after noticing how fast the clouds were shifting.
Seizing the moment, he caught rays of light shimmering on the ocean and took several photographs of the view.
He explained that he chose this photo to post because he liked how the sun “rays made a line that connected the foreground to the background.”
However, he also admitted that at the time, all he could think of was whether he needed a wider angle lens to capture the beautiful shot. Thankfully, it wasn’t needed and the photo managed to do the cliffs and the ocean justice.
