Autumn has gone but memories of our trip to South Korea still linger.
When we reached the Deoksugung palace in Seoul, there was a changing of the guards. Although it was not as spectacular as the changing of the guards at the Tower of London, nevertheless, it attracted big crowds of spectators.
Deoksugung is a walled compound of palaces in Seoul that was inhabited by royalties around the turn of the 20th century.
The buildings are of varying construction, including some of natural crytomeria wood, painted wood, and stucco.
The palace buildings are impressive. We have a good look around the area.
Autumn was in the air; trees were changing their color.
There was a spectrum of colors in the fall foliage; from green, yellow, gold and even red.
Beautiful views were every where. The fall foliage looked particularly colorful when viewed against the palace walls.
While many of the foliage were gold or still green, some have already changed to red.
We have a delightful stroll within the palace; passing by a pond, before finishing off our walk.
Understand that there are five palaces in Seoul. I did not have the opportunity to visit the other four palaces, but I must say I thoroughly enjoyed the atmosphere and the colors of Autumn at Deoksugung!
