hambaeksan snow hiking

No matter the season, whether winter, spring, summer or fall, Koreans like to hike. It was my first time to hike a snow mountain so I didn’t know what to expect. After 5 hours of walking up and down the several mountains of hambaek in gangwondo, we were able to finish the hike but not without challenge. Early on, I got blisters on my feet so it was difficult to walk and there were times when I felt like quitting but seeing the Koreans hike like it was a walk in a park, I just have to continue and finish the hike. Easily one of the best and memorable hike i have ever done.

Gimme Shelter

This image was made on my final day of my On-The-Road series, a 17-day, multi-city tour of peninsular South Korea. For the last day, I was caught in torrential downpours in the Seoraksan National Park as the heavens opened. I managed to seek refuge in Sinheung-sa grotto, carved into the rocks of Ulsanbawi. The monks here served me green tea and allowed me to rest in the grotto while the rain died down. I'm going to use this as my once chance to name an image after The Rolling Stones song, 'Gimme Shelter.'

Morning Mists

After hitchhiking to Daehan Dawon during the early hours of an autum morning, I set up and captured the fabled mists of Boseong. This wasn't my only attempt at the shot, the weather let me down on the other occasions; and so it was incredibly gratifying to finally get the shot I envisaged.
