Taiwan From The Air, Revisited

Photos by MJ Klein

By now, everyone knows that we have a new camera – the Nikon D7000.  What most people do not know is that I just returned from a week long business trip to Thailand.  It was dark when we flew into Taiwan, but I was able to get some photos out the window.  So, here they are, thanks to the engineers at Nikon and their wonderful creation, the D7000:

Kaohsiung

This was my first view of Kaohsiung as we approached Taiwan from the South-East.

Tainan

This is Tainan, which is just a beautiful on the ground, if you ask me.

Chaiyi

Chaiyi.  The next three shots were taken as we traveled north past Chaiyi:

I really like how the D7000 captured the clouds and the mountains behind them.  Clicking on any photo will take you to it’s Flickr page where you can use the “Actions” pulldown to view larger sizes.

The above four shots are approaching Chuanghua, another nice area of Taiwan.  Next we’ll be passing Changhua and approaching Taichung:

The large city on the left is Taichung.  Here are more of Taichung:

Unfortunately as you can see, we flew into cloud cover, and I was only able to get a few more shots.

  1. Nice pictures 🙂

    I think Monday I’ll be getting some pictures of something that NO ONE that reads your blog has ever seen.

    Last night at the Topsfield Fair… a new world record was set in the New England Giant Pumpkin Weigh-In. The old record was 1,810 pounts (812kg) set in 2010 in Wisconsin. The new record is 2009 pounds (911.3kg).

    Its the first 1+ ton pumpkin ever weighed.

    1. hi gualailaiu, no the lights really are not green. the camera records them that way though because they are artificial lights and have a strange white balance according to the camera’s sensor. i think they are mercury vapor lights but don’t quote me on that! thanks.
