Seoul’s palaces are a magnet for artists and photographers, especially in autumn and winter. I snapped this photograph ten years ago on one of my visits to Kyongbok Palace which was not far from where I was teaching at the time, Yonsei University.
I thought this would make for a nice photo commentary in the Korea Times. Sadly, I never got around to submitting it.
However, I did write about it and other visits to the palace in Waking Up in the Land of The Morning Calm.
