Raining Zen by cwexplorationphotography

A peaceful afternoon at the Seattle Japanese Garden that was interrupted by a pretty nasty wind storm. I actually really like how this one turned out considering the conditions at play.

Leader Village by elkynz

As a branch of the Leader Hotel, Village Taroko used to be a place for activities held by the RSEA Engineering Corporation, which abandoned the place for a long time. After a full renovation that gave the place a refreshing new look, it was officially opened in September, 2004. Situated on the Bruwan plateau and surrounded by mountains, plus the Liwu River passing by, Village Taroko is a sight of heaven.

Village Taroko is designed to be a small tribal village with stand-alone aboriginal-style cabins that also have a traditional Tang Dynasty touch to it. The interior textile lamps and paintings are all aboriginal hand-made artifacts. The setting of the living room is unique in that it is placed outside so that guests can enjoy the surrounding beauty during the day and chat with family members under the starry sky at night.”
