Spirited Away bathhouse in full spectrum

Taken in Jiufen (九份), a hidden mountain area of Rufang District near Taipei, Taiwan. This town is a perfect blend of history, nostalgia, shopping, and sightseeing, and it’s super easy to reach from Taipei. Famous for its similarity to the village from Spirited Away (2001), this mountain town in Taiwan also draws crowds of tourists wanting to see Jiufen Old Street, which has loads of souvenir shops, tea houses, and good restaurants to try. This photo was shot with a full spectrum camera with a 50mm old Russian Prime lens. I used a full spectrum camera to capture the scene, the color of the greenery reflects (UV/Infrared) lights that aren't readily perceived by our eyes, which result in painted the leaves pastel as shown in the photo.
