Welcome to 225 ( 04/30/2015) of Travel Photo Thursday. This week we’re doing a return visit to Bongwansa Temple in the heart of Seoul. Way back in 2012 I spent an afternoon here, blown away by the fantastic display of lotus blossoms. You can have a peak at those photos here. Today, we go back to meet the gorgeous temple dragon. Korean temples often feature dragons, and this one is a beauty!
Don’t forget leave your comment, and your link before you leave!
As you can see this shot includes both the head and the dragon’s neck. What I think is unique about this particular dragon are the blue markings. This is the only temple dragon I have ever seen containing blue. Usually, it is the green and red that are prominent. I think the blue really adds to it!
Now we have this gorgeous head with no blue markings; instead focusing on the green with yellow and red.
Regardless of the colors used, I think both are beautiful and great examples of the temple dragons here in Korea.
One final shot of the beautiful lotus blossoms that truly make Bongwansa Temple so special.
