Seoraksan National Park

Seoraksan National Park

In the northeast of Korea lies the Seoraksan National Park (설악산국립공원). A colourful nature reserve with which is valued for its floral diversity. There are over 1000 species of plants known, with 822 vascular plant species. Pine trees such as the Siberian pine are abundant on the southern slope while the northern slopes of the mountain range are characterized by oaks and other deciduous trees.
I will upload more photos from the region, such as the Buddhist temples Baekdamsa and Sinheungsa.

Stay healthy!


Qibao in Shanghai

Strolling around in the old town Qibao (七宝镇), Shanghai. Its formation can be traced back to the Five Dynasties and Ten Kingdoms period, to the Northern Song Dynasty. Back then it was dangerous to cross the bridge, because of the Nine Dragons (九龍圖卷) that constantly flew over the town, always ready to eat or mate with a random person.

While searching for fish&chips, I found this huge green wall in Camden, London. This is a stiched HDR-panorama with cross-processing, enhancing the beautiful sky.

Tilt-Shift Itsukushima Shrine

Photographed and enhanced with tilt-shifting last year during low tide, the Itsukushima Shrine (厳島神社), is a Shinto shrine on the island of Itsukushima (popularly known as Miyajima). It is in the city of Hatsukaichi in Hiroshima Prefecture in Japan. The shrine complex is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and the Japanese government has designated several buildings and possessions as National Treasures. Every day the water floods the whole torii gate and it appears to be floating.
