#1 Nun’s Temple, Daejeon
Of all the photos of Korea that I’ve taken over the years, this is probably my favorite. The vibrant colors and the perfect symmetry of the dragon speak volumes to me. Taken at the “Nun’s Temple” just outside of Daejeon I will always remember that weekend as one of colorful, dragons, chanting monks, and the sound of pouring tea. I have never discovered the Korean name for this particular temple. It’s in the same neighborhood as Jangwansa, a Buddhist temple, and meditation retreat.
#2 Korean Traditional Dancer
My face always lights up when I come across this shot in my photos of Korea. Performing at the annual Andong Mask Festival, her smiling face, the vibrant colors and the flow of her hanbok capture the moment perfectly.
#3 Expo Bridge, Daejeon
I took numerous photos of this bridge during the ten years I lived in Daejeon. I love everything about this picture including the vibrant blue sky, the reflections, and the level of the river. This bridge was built for the 1993 Daejeon Expo. While much of Expo Park has been dismantled, but the bridge and the needle (in the background) remain.
#4 Daejeon Arboretum
I love daisies, and these beauties jump up and scream! The Daejeon Arboretum became a favorite place over my years in Daejeon. This shot was taken on a near perfect weather day with perfect blue sky (typical in Daejeon) with just the right amount of sun streaming through the trees.
#5 Daecheon Beach Sunset
A perfect ending to an iconic beach weekend and takes the final spot in my “Five photos of Korea” collection.
Choosing favorite photos is never easy an easy task. Tell me your favorite in the comments.
