First Night in Tainan

On our first night in Tainan we headed to the Chihkan Cultural Zone, which covers the northern part of the old city and is home to some of Tainan’s finest temples. On the way there we walked past a large, pretty park, saw this beautiful bridge glowing through the trees and headed over to it to get some shots. Here’s one.

We then headed to the Chihkan Tower and Fort Provintia, which were quite lovely at night.

Then we walked around the area and dropped in and out of some of the many various temples.

How about the bokeh on the Nikon 24mm F1.4 lens!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
