Toufen maple forest and Maitreya

posted by Martin Rubli at 16:55

A few weeks ago Kevin, one of my photographically talented friends, took us to a nice maple forest near 頭份 (Toufen), just a short drive south from Hsinchu, to shoot a few photos.

Later that day Ivy and I rode our scooter to the 天恩彌勒佛院 (Voice of Maitreya area), which features the biggest 彌勒佛 (Maitreya) statue in Asia. While still under construction it is already an impressive piece of work, in particular the majestic statue that rises above the nearby lake.

Enjoy the photos!

It's not easy to photograph an ant lion in action, especially with a macro lens and no tripod. But if you look closely and use your imagination, you'll see it. ;-)
