More Camping At Yuchi

Photos (most geotagged) by MJ Klein, including FOOD PHOTOS!

 

Yes, we went “camping” again at the same place in Nantou.  I say “camping” because if you’ve read the previous articles, what passes for camping in Taiwan just isn’t quite what we did back in the USA.  But it was fun just the same.  In this installment we’re going to concentrate more on the food than previously.

More Camping at Yuchi

Here’s the setup: Charcoal burning in a square grill with a quad-pod in the background, ready to hang a Dutch oven.  Nothing bad can follow that!

Big City Bubbles

The Sigma lens is back in action.  The strange thing is that the tech checked out the lens and found nothing wrong with it.  That means it’s the photographer that has the problem!  But, they did match the lens to my D7000 and it only took about 40 minutes.  If you have a Sigma lens, I recommend that you let them perform this free-of-charge service.  You’ll see below that it makes a big difference!

Photos From Chinese New Year 2015, Round Two

Finding myself a little bored, I took Phoenix for a walk with my camera.  This is where we started out – in an alley where Hui-chen’s aunt and uncle live.

The Xinpu Hakka Festival

Xinpu Hakka Festival

Hui-chen went looking on the internet for something to do, and she found this local festival in Xinpu, a township close to where we live.  It coincided with the Lantern Festival, and at first I thought it was just a local Lantern Festival, but as I looked around, it seemed a little different.  This festival apparently is a Lantern Festival that celebrates the Hakka People, and this area has many Hakka Taiwanese.  Hakka people came from China to Taiwan a very long time ago.  We have a friend who is a 9th generation Taiwanese Hakka.  There was absolutely no information about the festival anywhere, so we walked around and enjoyed the carnival atmosphere.

Low ISO, Long Exposure Experiments

I’ve done high ISO exposures with the D7000 and there are many artifacts and strange colors, noise, etc., as a result.  So, I decided to take some photos at ISO 100, with a long duration to see what happened.  I alternated between noise reduction on and off, and it’s hard for me to tell the difference.  Here are 4 photos that I processed in Lightroom:

Taken from my roof, this is what the factories across the street look like.

Taiwan Strawberry Festival

The family and I went down to Miaoli at the start of the Strawberry Festival.  We found that most of the strawberry picking places weren’t really ready for customers, so after driving around and not finding one, we went to the cultural center where strawberry products were on sale.

Guoxing, Nantou

More Camping in Taiwan

We went back to the first place we camped in Taiwan: Guoxing.  On this trip we were using our new tent and I got shots of the setup and features of the tent.  The brand name of the tent is Adisi and is a Taiwanese home grown brand.
