101 Sunset by miketlim

Not satisfied with the photos I got the first time I climbed the Elephant Mountain Hiking Trail, I made the ascent again on my last day in Taiwan. There were quite a few more clouds in the sky which translated into more colours and the opportunity to do some long exposures.

The Taipei 101 is a skyscraper located in the Xinyi District of Taipei. When it opened in 2004, it was the tallest building in the world until the opening of the Burj Khalifa in Dubai on 2010.

This photo is comprised 2 exposures and was manually blended using luminosity masks.

Processed using Adobe Lightroom 6 and Photoshop CC 2015.

Taipei’s Giant by miketlim

The Taipei 101 is a skyscraper located in the Xinyi District of Taipei. When it opened in 2004, it was the tallest building in the world until the opening of the Burj Khalifa in Dubai on 2010.

This view of Taipei’s skyline was shot from the Elephant Mountain Hiking Trail. It’s a short and steep climb to the top but definitely worth the effort.

Sunset over Taipei by peterstewartphotography

The Taipei skyline as seen from the viewpoint at the top of the Elephant trail, a popular hiking spot right in the middle of the city. To the right is the iconic “Taipei 101” or the Wok in a Box as I like to call it.

The Grand Hotel by AmrAlnuaimat

The Grand Hotel (Chinese: 圓山大飯店; pinyin: Yuánshān Dà Fàndiàn; literally: “Yuanshan Great Hotel”), is a landmark located at Yuanshan (圓山) in Zhongshan District, Taipei, Taiwan. The hotel was established in May 1952 and the main building was completed on October 10, 1973. It is owned by the Duen-Mou Foundation of Taiwan, a non-profit organization, and has played host to many foreign dignitaries who have visited Taipei.

The main building of the hotel is one of the world’s tallest Chinese classical buildings,[1] it is 87 metres (285 ft) high.[2] It was also the tallest building in Taiwan from 1973 to 1981.
