Jung Ja (what we call a pagoda or gazebo in the US) was captured in early morning of Spring 1994 at Nae Chang-San, Nae Chang-Sa, South Korea. The air was still and the water like glass, creating surreal reflections of forsythia, dogwood, cherry, mountains, and sky.

  1. This is mystical…magical. It’s as though the pagoda is levitating over the water. The water looks as though one could walk across it. What an amazing place. What an amazing capture. You are brilliant, darling.

    • “Lezlie Sokol” Painted Cloud Gallery: Mystical?…magical?…I think you’re spot on Lezlie. As you can see, there is nary a ripple in the water. Early morning is always calm, but this is beyond calm. Yes, it is the lull before a storm. There is a sense of atmospheric pressure, but still it is more than that. It is a force field. I’ve said this before, and I will say it again. There are sacred places in South Korea where vibrations are palpable. Nae Chang-Sa (Nae Chang Temple) on Nae Chang-San (Nae Chang Mountain) is one of them. I am there in the moment. I am the only witness as to what is real and what is reflection. I see. I feel. I capture the vibrations using all of my heart, soul, and imagination.
