Of Wetlands…

by Mark Forman on July 31, 2014

We got the crazy idea for a family 1/2 day trip out to the Gao Mei Wetlands on a hot July Sunday afternoon. Why crazy-well it was a hot July afternoon and Taiwan places of interest are always super-crowded on holidays and weekends. I thought the sticky July heat would probably help thin the numbers down some, so why not!

Gao Mei always appealed to me because of the neighboring windmill farm at Taichung Harbor and just the location of wetlands next to the sea. The light at the shore, the varying depth of water and resulting reflections and textures that appear in the pictures,etc. Ohh, and did I mention the light? 😀 Now to there is the added shape and texture of a boardwalk into the wetlands that has been recently completed.

The family had a good time. we got some exercise and some nice sights in our eyes, I got some nice photos several would have to rank as all time favorites-this is one of them. Can you feel the July at the shore vibe?
