Last month I had a business trip in Taiwan and on our last day there we made it a point to stop by the temple first thing in the morning. My boss has been here before and said I had to go and take some photos. I am glad we went. This was my first time ever visiting another country. Pretty amazing over there. Talk about completely different than the USA.

Nice. I'm going in a month or so. Looking forward to it (except the plane ride from Boston). I'll make it a point to check this out! Might need a WA lens for this trip...

what time of the morning was this?

Around 9:30am. Yeah the plane ride sucks. 14hrs from LAX. I'd recommend a WA for sure. For my trip I rented a Tokina 11-16 and used that as my primary walk around.

Really nice stuff. I was there a few months ago and my WA took a dump that morning, which I was furious about. It was right at the end of our stay in Taiwan and just before Chinese New Years, so the temple was packed!

Love that 3rd shot!

I love the temples in Taiwan. Many of them are gorgeous and the variety of people makes for some good photo opportunities :)

Will be going to Taipei (with my students from Japan, and then on to Cambodia) in a few months...can't wait!

Also curious...which lens did you use for these shots? I'm having a hell of a time deciding what to take...

I used my 70-200 f/4L IS and Sigma 50 1.4 in the above shots. I also had a rental Tokina 11-16 2.8 that I brought with me that came in handy.
