Qigu Salt Mountain / 七股鹽山.

Negative0-11-08(1)2

The Qigu Salt Mountain (七股鹽山) was once the largest sea salt field in Taiwan; it ceased operation in 2002 and in place, the Salt Mountain was created to veer the once viable salt industry into a tourist attraction. This was the last place I visited during my weekend in Tainan, 1.5 hours away from the city by bus, weaving through the quaint Tainan countryside on the way. I apologize for the overexposed photographs, unfortunately I did not care to consider what all that white in the hot sun was going to do to my film!

    1. It’s rare that I get these tones in my photographs so they are rather special to me! :) Glad to hear that you enjoy them, Polly ♥

      1. I think these are very refreshing! Love that the landscape and the details are both accounted for in this set. Just curious… is that sesame-flavoured ice cream?

  1. Beautiful! I actually really love that it’s overexposed, some of the pictures almost looked black and white – so cool. Can’t wait to see where you guys go next!

    1. Thanks Julie! I’ll let you in on a non-secret, I’m heading to Orchid Island (蘭嶼) in April and totally excited! (Though probably not as excited as I would be if I were going to Europe, lucky you!)

    1. Actually, public transport is pretty well-planned in Tainan! I took the tourist shuttle bus from the city center. The place is indeed amazing! :)

  2. Beautiful. This makes me really want to visit.

    Like everyone has said, actually ‘overexposed’ works perfectly. Usually photos taken in snow and sand [and salt :)] usually appear too dark.

    1. I’ve never had experience taking photographs of snow (or mountains of salt) so I’m glad they turned out overexposed and not dark like you said. :)

    1. When I first got them back I thought, oh shoot I’ve gone too far with the overexposure but thank you so much for thinking they’re good – they look good to me now. :D
