Well if it is photoshoped it's still very nicely done.
Driving along the Eastern coast of Taiwan is pretty awesome, and not something most people do. There's not a lot there in terms of people / civilisation. Most of the big cities are on the Western or Central side. That's a shame, because it's really quite beautiful. It was a cloudy day around noon and not usually a good time for photos, but I got lucky here when the sun broke through the clouds. I almost fell over myself trying to grab the shot before it was gone. I wasn't exactly sure where I was when I took this photo, so once I got online later, I found the spot on the map. It's pretty neat to see the view of this bay from Google Maps and compare it to the perspective of my photo. I love this country. :-)

Another awesome shot by +Tom Anderson . Calling all the photographers to come!!
I made it down to the southern tip of Taiwan -- an area known as Kenting. It's almost tropical down here... feeling more like Thailand than Taiwan. When I took this photo, I was standing on a precarious ledge with extreme winds blowing me about. I was hugging the earth keeping a low center of gravity for quite a while before I felt confident enough the winds weren't going to suddenly blow me the wrong way. I love wind. Standing here and looking out at this expanse, feeling the extreme gusts was exhilarating. I will never forget it. I felt so alive, but I also felt like my life was in danger... I'm not an adrenaline junky and am very happy being alive. :-) Trust me, I didn't like the dangerous feeling. I think I would have felt equally happy without the danger.

I was so enamored of this feeling that I really felt I had to capture this place just right. The problem is that it was so windy, my camera was shaking even on a heavy, sturdy tripod. I shot again and again trying to wait for a brief respite from the extreme winds... I'd feel the wind stop for a second and I'd try to press the shutter in time... Finally I think I got something that was steady enough to be in focus. Still, I'm afraid this photo doesn't really convey the magnanimity of this place... If you really want to capture the feeling, try putting the photo on a 70" TV screen, stand 5 inches away from the screen, then get your friend to point a leaf blower at your face, then turn it on. ;-)
