Thank you very much for your comments on the camelia growing wild in Alishan Forest.

March is the time to visit Alishan as there are many trees in full boom offering a most beautiful spectacle even on a foggy morning.

There are some orchards planted by the Japanese during their occupation of Taiwan. “Between 1895 and 1945, Taiwan was a dependency of the Empire of Japan. The expansion into Taiwan was a part of Imperial Japan's general policy of southward expansion during the late 19th century.

As Taiwan was Japan's first overseas colony, Japanese intentions were to turn the island into a showpiece "model colony". As a result, much effort was made to improve the island's economy, industry, public works and to change its culture. “

(Wikipedia)

The trees in the photos are growing wild in the forest.

Hoping you’re going to enjoy the photos,
Jean-Noël

A beautiful set of shots. Really like V3. However I did not realise that Taiwan had been a colony of Japan. Very interesting narrative. Moira

There's some beautiful colour in the trees in V1.

The rest (especially V2) could do with a tweak to the colour temperature, just to warm them a little.

A superb set of images, Jean-Noel, but for me, V.1 is outstanding. Carol

I particularly like the flower shots — I'm a sucker for water droplets. Lovely detail and the exposure is much better than some of your recent uploads. If you look at the histograms of #3 and #4, they both reach the right-hand side. (In both cases, the histogram is very low on the right but that's not a problem — it's just a natural consequence of a lot of the frame being the pure black background.)

Four cracking shot, Jean-Noël, all very well captured, V1 for me if only for the misty background.
