7-day nature photography challenge: day 4

My blogging friend Lois at On Pets and Prisoners has invited me to participate in the 7-Day Nature Photography Challenge. Lois is very nice. Please stop by her blog and say hi ๐Ÿ˜‰

The mission is to post a nature photograph for 7 days (more than one is ok, right?) and to nominate a fellow blogger each day. Since many bloggers have done this challenge already, I would like to invite anyone who is interested in this challenge to participate. It is fun!

I know many of you like to travel. Here are some photos I took at Yehliu Geopark in northern part of Taiwan. I copied the following paragraphs from Yehliu Geopark web site.

The rock landscape of Yehliu Geopark is one of most famous wonders in the world.
Yehliu Geopark can be divided into three areas. The first area contains mushroom rock and ginger rock. You may learn the development process of mushroom rock as well as witness the appearance of ginger rock, cleavage, pothole and melting erosion panel. On top of that, the famous candle shaped rock and the ice cream rock are presented in this area too.

The second area is similar to the first area, where the mushroom rock and the ginger rock are the main focuses, only they are fewer in numbers. You may see the Queenโ€™s Head, Dragonโ€™s Head Rock, and etc. Since the area is near the coast, rocks that develop into four different kinds of formations can be seen in this area: elephant rock, fairyโ€™s shoe, earth rock and peanut rock. The aforementioned are parts of the layers featuring special shapes as a result of being corroded by sea water.

The third area is the wave-cut platform located on the other side of Yehliu. This area is much narrower than the second area; one side of the platform is closely adjacent to steep cliffs while down below the other side is a scene of torrent waves. Several rocks of grotesque shapes and sizes that are incarnated as a result of sea erosion can be seen in this area, including the 24-filial piety hill, pearl rock and Marine Bird Rock. The third area also includes the major ecology reserve of Yehliu Geopark in addition to the said rock landscapes.

      Thanks, Lois. I am not good at photo editing and I can’t draw, not even a simple heart shape. It took me 7 tries. Ha ha…
      Yehliu is a popular touring place. Those rocks are amazing, aren’t they?

        Forgot to say that I did see a heart in that shadow before I edit the photo. That’s how I got the idea. ๐Ÿ˜‰ But I wasn’t sure if others would see it too, so I decided to make it more obvious. ๐Ÿ˜‰
