Snowy day at Kyongbok Palace

One of my favorite winter photos is this one that I took on a snowy day in March 2004. It had started to snow during the middle of the night and when I went to teach that morning at FLI it was still snowing. As soon as my class was over, I raced back to the Muak Dormitory (race as best I could with all the snow that had fallen), grabbed my camera and then headed down to Kyongbok Palace. Surprisingly there was not much traffic that Friday morning and I got to the palace rather quickly; beating most of the other photo hounds that morning wanting to get a good shot of this pavilion at the back of the palace grounds. Sure enough, not long after I took this photo the area was swarming with photographers and office workers playing a little office hooky that morning.
