The Korean Peninsula is covered with mountains. As a result, most cities are in valleys and people live in tall high-rises. Some people live in the country, however, and it is a sharp contrast from the concrete jungle. The buildings and towns may be modest, but the views are not. I’ve tried to capture these vistas with my camera, but I don’t do them any justice. Still, I wanted to give my readers a glimpse of the Korean countryside – no apartment complexes to be seen.
