leaves

November in Yeongtong

Just as I had my camera on the way home from work last week, I had it again yesterday as I walked to and from work. This time it was nice and bright out and ideal for catching the last of the autumn leaves. In Korea you’ll never hear the end of the talk about […]

Fall colors


Beautiful fall colors we noticed on our trek to the top of the Great wall of Seoul.

Autumn leaves in Chuncheon and Gangchon

A couple of weeks ago, myself, Herself, and a few friends took a weekend excursion down Chuncheon and Gapyeong in Gangwon-do. It hadn’t really been our idea to catch the autumn leaves, but fortunately we arrived right at the ideal time to really see the bright multi-coloured autumn which Korea prides itself on.

The set below posted on flickr is the first collection of photographs taken of this trip.

While there, we took a few short walks. The first included a short boat trip and then a light stroll up along a river towards a temple, Cheongpyeongsa. The last time that I was here I came with Herself during the winter. The river and the waterfall were frozen over and this created a stunning winter wonderland of faded brown leaves, grey stone and the white of the ice. I dragged out an old photo that Herself took of me back then.


The colors of fall

A bit late to the party with pictures fall colors - especially that many of them have now faded. Darn these cameras with their new-fangled memory cards ;) Actually I've just been quite busy. Most were taken around my neck of the woods in northeastern Seoul:




I loved the backlighting of the leaf; a little contrast boost helps the colors to shine.
