Moonrise Over Tamsui

Moonrise over the skeletal outline of an abandoned home in Tamsui.

Yesterday I ventured out to to have a closer look at this historic town in northern . After a full day of tromping around forts, old streets, abandoned buildings, and temples I stopped in front of Qīngshuǐ Temple 清水巖 to watch the moon rise over the skeletal outlines of a gutted home now filled with poured concrete. Tamsui is more known for its sunsets but I have a habit of doing things differently. This shot is entirely handheld and, as such, the details are a little washed out and grainy, but it still looks nice at web resolutions. Moody and serene.
