I have no idea where this was. It was about 5-6 weeks into my journey and at that point, it didn’t seem to matter. I was just seeing…feeling…capturing what was presented to the lens.

    • tefltravelling: Thanks for liking my image “Temple and Drinking Fountain” taken on my six week circumnavigation of the South Korean peninsula in an old Hyundai. You will find many more images of S. Korea by searching the word Korea on this blog.


    • Yes, you did capture the aura!

      I am drawn to the vibrant colours of the temples aura, so mesmerizing.

      The water fountain has it’s own aura of pure white light just off the surface of the flowing water.

      I would like to see the inside of the temple, did you enter and capture it as well, or was it too sacred to enter and photograph?

    • Thank you. I was hoping I did. Capturing something unseen by the eye is difficult. My thinking is that if a photographer feels the aura, it will be portrayed in the image.

      I did enter this temple, but I kept my camera in my backpack out of respect. I did capture a close up of the drinking fountain only.

  2. You and your images have made me fall in love with this country. It hurts my heart to think that “your Korea no longer exists”. I don’t want to believe it. This just makes your images all that much more precious.
