Explorations of the Pacific Edge

Pacific edge

These photos were taken two years ago after cycling through the Old Caoling Tunnel 舊草嶺隧道 into Tóuchéng 頭城, Yílán 宜蘭. The first set of six photos were all shot along the rugged shoreline of the Láilái Geological Area 萊萊地質區 while the last four were captured at Mǎgǎng 馬崗, a half-abandoned fishing village on Cape San Diego 三貂角 (pinyin: Sāndiāojiǎo), the easternmost tip of Taiwan. All were captured in Gòngliáo 貢寮. From here the vast Pacific Ocean stretches all the way to Baja California in Mexico.
