Image Gallery Pescadores 澎湖诸岛照片辑

Below are some of the views of the Pescadores Islands. Named 'Peng-Hu' in Chinese with the meaning 'peaceful lake', this string of islands is also known to the world as the Pescadores Archipelago, or the Fishermen's Islands, located between Taiwan and the Mainland China. When the Ming Dynasty was coming to an end, one of its great generals, Cheng-Gong Zheng, retreated to Taiwan with an ambition to recover the Mainland China. He died before his plan could be carried out. Penghu, the collection of islands with their surrounding waters, actually protects Taiwan as a shield, as beautiful as it is.

以下您将看到澎湖诸岛的一些照片。澎湖这个名字南宋以来就有‘平湖’之称,后来演变为‘澎湖’。平湖和澎湖在台湾话发音是一样的。在郑成功之前,欧洲沿海诸国的航海技术得罗盘之助,开始纵横全世界海面,称呼澎湖列岛为‘渔翁岛’。马公有名的‘百事多利’饭店就是用Pescadores的译音。郑成功经由澎湖抵达台湾,将荷兰人驱逐,经略台湾为反清复明的基地,也认识了澎湖的重要战略地位。

If you are a native, or have visited the islands and want to share an image, please do drop me a line (that's Kuocheng) to submit an image.

假如您是澎湖人,或者到过澎湖,愿意分享您的照片,请联络国城 分享照片.

				Island, one of the islands of the Pescadores Archipelago
This Double-Hearted fishtrap constructed of coral stones is the landmark of the Seven-Beauties Island, one of the islands of the Pescadores Archipelago. Chinese as a language is pictographic, and there is no surprising that the people will read meanings into a huge coral-stone fishtrap in the shape of two connected hearts. Lovers and young couples will pose before them with prayers in mind. This picture is used as the front cover for one of several books authored by island native Jinmei Chen. 这对双心携手,珊瑚石筑成的鱼阱是澎湖列岛七美岛的招牌景观。年轻的情侣喜欢拿它为背景拍照留恋,也有默默祈许‘心心相印,永远偕老’的意思。本照片也被从小在七美长大的陈金美女士用作她几本著作之一的封面。 [Photographer: Jinmei Chen 摄影者: 陈金美]
