Golden Waters

Nature is an incredible thing. It never ceases to amaze me. I witnessed these beautiful golden waters when I visited the Ruifang District of New Taipei City in Taiwan. The cascade of gold liquid is caused by the metal deposits in the old gold mine that the water flows through. The contrast of the brilliant, yellow elixir gushing through the greenery in hills is stunning. It streams all the way down the mountain to the sea, where the blonde water meets the turquoise ocean. But it doesn’t mix; the gold is on one side and blue on the other. They call it the Yingyang Sea.

While striking, this metallic water is extremely toxic. You’re not supposed to drink it or even touch it. Honestly, for me, just looking at it was more than enough. πŸ˜‰
