Seoraksan, Tree, Steps, Bridge

Seoraksan (elevation: 5,604 ft.) is the highest mountain in the Taebaek mountain range in the Gangwon Province in eastern South Korea. As you can see it is a well groomed path. Roundtrip takes a full day including photography time.

  1. mohnfoto: Thanks for liking “Seoraksan, Tree, Steps, Bridge”. It’s amazing how a small piece of clear plastic coated on one side with gelatin containing silver halide crystals, when exposed to light, can reach people’s hearts and souls. I will never cease to be amazed by this.

  2. robintournadre: Thanks for liking my image “Seoraksan, Tree, Steps, Bridge”. This photograph was taken at the point in my life where I truly began to understand Kodachrome 25 and 64 transparency film. It took me a long time to find that understanding. Then, Kodak stopped making it !

  3. It is so interesting to see everything.
    Even with the trees in full leaf that the stairs and bridge are not obscured but it is like the branches and leaves are draped in such a way that they are framing everything, so to draw the viewers eye down onto the bridge and water below it.

    Everything looks so well tended, so to traverse the path in safety.

    How many photography stops did you make on this trek?

    Where did you start off at and where did the trail end?

    • Nature’s Child: It did seem like the trail was well taken care of and that is probably because it is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. I made many captures on the way up, but took enough time to do my best on each and every one. It has to be relaxed and fun, or you will get nothing of value. One must experience the joy of capture and time to savor it. I started at the trailhead which led to the mountaintop with an ancient Buddhist Temple in a cave. There was a vendor there selling Korean rice whiskey in bowls. It looks similar to coconut juice and tastes wonderful. It also has quite a kick so there were no photos taken on the way down. I was too busy concentrating on putting one foot in front of the other.

  4. earth is ascending: Thanks for liking “Seoraksan, Tree, Steps, Bridge”. I have stated many times on that I do my best work when I am in a place I have never been before, lost and wandering, not knowing the language. Hopefully this image is evidence of that.


  5. This is the first time I’ve seen this…it’s glorious! I love you eye…your awareness of Nature, and your technical skills blow me away….

    • All form within the frame, both natural and manmade have come together in perfect coalescence.

      I’ve spent a lot of time in Nature, and with that you get closer to it…become one with it.

      On the technical side, I spent many years learning the vagaries of Kodachrome 25 and 64 and after this Korea trip, I felt I had it down pat. Soon after this triumphant moment, Kodak stopped production on it!

  6. This is a perfect image. On the one hand, your words about this image take my breath away. On the other, your sense of humor has me rolling on the floor.
