Through the Sandbox Lens #17 — Hwaseong Fortress Wall

Posted by on Oct 27, 2010 in Korea, Through the Sandbox Lens | 3 comments

Korea has its fair share of world UNESCO sites, and one of the more interesting ones is the Hwaseong Fortress in the city of Suwon just outside of Seoul. I took this shot a few weeks ago when I attended the annual Hwaseong Cultural Festival. The fortress is easily accessible by train, subway or bus from anywhere in Korea. I highly recommend it as a day trip. To find out more: Hwaseong Fortress. ; Seoul subway; Trains and buses and other transportation in Korea.

The fortress is surrounded by this stone wall. I like the light in this shot, and how it accentuates the texture of the wall.
