We had some snow and cold weather recently in Seoul. Sadly, I didn’t get much time to photograph the snowy scenery, but I did run over to Deoksugung one lunch hour to shoot the winter-white palace.
I was hoping the snow would last until Saturday, but alas, by Saturday morning, much of the snow had melted. On my way home, I stopped by Gyeongbokgung Palace, but admission had already ended at 4 pm. Everyone and their brother has taken this shot, but still, the way in which the gate harmonizes with Mt. Bugaksan never really gets old.
And in the photo & travel links…
