Magnificent Monday — Spring and Autumn Collections

Posted by on Oct 4, 2011 in Korea, Magnificent Monday's, Uncategorized | 10 comments

Magnificent Monday is here again (how time flies)! The theme this week is Spring and Autumn Collections. Hosted by Jim at Holes in My Shoes, head over there to view more fantastic spring and fall shots from around the world. You can even join in the fun.


Fall has definitely struck here on the Korean peninsula. This was the first weekend that I have had to wear jeans and a fleece jacket since last April! I even had my gloves on last night. If this cold snap continues, we are in for a long winter. This is my 11th autumn in Korea, and I have taken many great fall shots over the years. Here is a sample…

Daejeon Balloon Festival (held every October in Daejeon)

These shots were all taken on day trips from Daejeon, and are perfect for any budget traveler. The only cost involved was transportation. As you can see autumn in Korea is a canvas of gorgeous color.

  1. All pretty pics, Nancie, but that first one takes my breath away — beautiful!

  2. That first pic – stunning!

  3. These photos are superb, the colours in the leaves are so vibrant. We will have to do a reverse of Spring and Falls because your Spring colours are obviously going to be just as good if not better Nancie!

  4. Magnificent!!! I especially like the second photo.

  5. Spectacular shots here. Simply love the colors.

  6. Some great colors if you did not tell where it was I would have guessed New England US.. Nice images

  7. The first photo just jumped at me! Aflame with autumn colors. Looks otherworldly to someone who lives in a country where it’s summer all year round. It’s forever green here.

  8. I love seeing photos of the rich reds – probably because I never live where trees turn that colour anymore. Super shot.

    I can relate to the cold snap – the gloves are on – in the morning only though.

  9. Love the first two

  10. The first photo is awesome! I love the vibrant colours of autumn.
