Sunrise at Niushan Huting 牛山呼庭

Wave mechanics

I spent a night at Niúshān Hūtíng 牛山呼庭 in Hualien 花蓮 a few months ago for an electronic music festival, Organik 2014. After having been up all night (and playing what was probably my lousiest DJ set in Taiwan) I wandered down to the shoreline, still hearing the distant echo of music over the pounding surf and the sound of pebbles rolling back into the sea after every crashing wave. It was not long after sunrise and a most serene quality of light filled the air, illuminating the rocky, windswept coastline with a majestic ambiance. I wet my feet, letting the ocean wash over me, and did my best to capture the magic of this primal scene.
