Glowing Gingkos and Autumn Shadows

Although Deoksugung Palace is not my favorite of Seoul's five main palaces, it has some beautiful sections, particularly in fall. These two photos are of Jeonggwanheon, a building used to host royal banquets. I loved how the golds of the porch carvings echoed in the gingko trees above. The warm orange-red glow of the maples were gracefully framed by the green columns.
It's important to look down as well. Here the shadows of the autumn afternoon cast intricate repetitive patterns on the porch floor.
