Red Rails

Trail lined with red rails at Tianzhong Forest Park, Changua County, Taiwan
"Red Rails" -- trail at Tianzhong Forest Park, Changua County, Taiwan. March 2013. Buy a print or card.

My favorite image from a surprisingly strenuous hike at the Tianzhong Forest park in Taiwan that I described in my personal blog.

The trail climbs up on a razor-thin ridge with an elevation change of 500m over a distance of only 1.5km, then winds around a canyon, and goes back down on another ridge. In the humidity of the lower elevations, it was a very sweaty exercise, but highly enjoyable.

I made this photo in the afternoon, when the sunlight was filtered by a dense layer of haze that lingered all over the land. Sunset was still about 1.5 hours away, but thanks to these conditions, it was possible to get this nice, soft and even light in the photo.

PRINTS: open edition fine art prints of Red Rails are available directly in my print-on-demand store (together with canvas prints, metal prints, acrylic prints, and greeting cards).
