The wish for a clear day
by Tien-Chien Chen
Jiancing Historic Trail, like many other trails in Taipingshan National Forest in Taiwan, was built along the old logging railway. The elevation of 2000m is the height at which clouds form and linger. Jiancing (??) actually means the wish for a clear day. For a photographer, however, there's nothing better than hiking all day in the impenetrable white mist.
Equipment: Canon 5D Mark II, Canon 17-40mm f/4.0L USM, 17mm 1.6s at f/18, ISO 200 ND2. Tripod.
Photographer based in Colorado.
