This pogada sits atop a mountain that also houses a huge stone buddha in a cave (Seokguram) in Gyeoundju, South Korea. I caught this one at sunrise. If you look into the middle of the pagoda, you will see a HUGE bell. This is rung by banging it with a huge log that is suspended by two thick chains, and is usually done at dawn and sunset. This can be heard for miles down the valleys on either side of this mountain range!

Decided to draganize this one to give it more of a vintage look. What do you think?

    I like it! Do you have a version with the rising sunlight, too? The shadows are a little dark, but that’s part of this effect, correct? Amazing structure – great details.
