Taken one morning in mid January this year on the grounds of the Confucius Temple. Is there a better place to start the day? Banyan trees, beautiful buildings and the serenity of the place.

The Taiwan Confucian Temple also called Quan Tai Shou Xueis a Confucian temple in Tainan City, Taiwan. Construction began in 1665, in the 19th year of the reign of the Yongli Emperor, during the Southern Ming Dynasty of China, by Zheng Jing, the son of Koxinga, following a suggestion by Chief Military Aide Chen Yonghua, and completed in 1666.

The temple has been renovated several times over the past 300 years, most recently in 1917 and 1979. (Wikipedia)

I hope you will like this photo as there are plenty more to come.

f6.3 1/125sec zoom at 70mm slight crop

Have a nice evening,
Jean-Nol

Both good but V1 is a gem, because of the very gentle balance between the two main figures. This does express harmony and calm very effectively.

Tai Chi in the morning in the open air, the best way to start the day in South East Asia.
