Cave at Seoraksan

The entrance to this cave was close to the summit of Seoraksan. What flipped me out about it was the rock face above looked like a pitched cottage roof. How cozy!

  1. Oooohhhh, such a beautiful, peaceful setting. You are right about the entrance to the cave looking cozy. I’m sure it must be an ancient Buddhist temple or holy place. It’s a beautiful capture…so rich in texture with the delicate lacy leaf trees interspersed between the massive boulders…and that gorgeous blue sky. A stunning image.

    • It is indeed a dose of nature.

      I have been entranced by the view here. Most people when taking a photo are looking down towards the way they came.
      But you have given us the perspective of looking up and gazing in awe and wonder at something we have yet to see.

      between the blue of the sky and the vibrant green of the trees, the rocks have become the focal point for me.
      This is a wonderful perspective, thank you!

      I am interested in the writing on the rock and above the cave opening.
      Do you know what it says?

      • I watch people taking pictures and they all do it standing at whatever height they are…so they get the same angle of view every time, but if you get on your belly with your tripod as low as it will go or set your tripod up on the roof of your car things begin to get interesting. In the case of this image, I am down low, lens angling upwards as if I’m looking up at a higher power. Unfortunately, I do not know the meaning of the Korean symbols so I just enjoy them as art.

  2. Thanks Rydaway. It’s not that easy to find with trails leading off in every direction. I’m glad I finally found it. I wanted to do a good representation of this hermitage. Seoraksan is far more beautiful than most of the photos of it on the web.
