Namhansanseong, Seoul, South Korea.
10/9/2015. An hour on the metro, followed by a bus ride brought me to this striking location in the evening where I found clear, windy skies. Several photographers lined this overlook despite the cool wind. This was the first location in Korea that I found to be truly striking and felt a strong connection to. After spending about an hour and half here and shooting this panorama, I departed. The idea of not coming back to this place again was too much, so I returned several days later. I spent the late afternoon hiking along the fortress walls before coming back to this overlook. It was less crowded this time, but the skies were hazy, so I sat and enjoyed the atmosphere. Long after the sun had set and having found the solitude I had been looking for, I picked up my things to head back and heard a rustling in the bushes, followed by a meek meow. One of the cats I had seen in the area earlier no doubt. I called back into the darkness to my unseen companion and this continued for several minutes. The perfect end to a day.
