The Olympus TG-4 has a microscopic lens. I like the detail it's showing!

SANTA CAME and left me a brand new Olympus TG-4 camera!

Went out for a 7KM hike to see what the camera could do

Not sure what I think of the new building going up beside Taipei 101

A lovely Christmas morning!

An impromptu late morning hike ... making my way up to the  Huangdidian East Peak (皇帝殿東峰)

A 1.5KM climb (and a tough one) to get up to this gorgeous lookout ... so worth it!

The pathways leading to and from the parking lot are covered with fallen trees from Typhoon Megi
