A Fishing Village -- Photo for the Day

Even during the winter season I enjoy visiting fishing villages along the coastal regions of South Korea.  I look forward to spring and the renewal and reawakening of life.  I especially look forward to being on the water.

To view some of my work with water and the sea, take a look at some of my archived projects at my website.  Specifically, my projects titled, The People of the Mud and The Boats of Suncheon Bay, can be seen here.

Scenes Along the Dongcheon Part 2

Yesterday afternoon I took a very long and much needed walk along the Dongcheon.  The Dongcheon is a river that flows through the city in which I live, and it feeds into Suncheon Bay.  

I have hiked and biked from my home to Suncheon Bay by traveling along the river a few times; however, at the present time no one is being permitted into the bay area on the Suncheon side.  It is hoped that by preventing anyone from entering the coastal areas of the bay that the A1 Avian Influenza will not gain a foothold and/or not spread to other areas.  Along the trail I hiked yesterday, there was a young man guarding and preventing non-residents from passing the barrier that has been placed across the trail.

These are some of the scenes I found interesting during my walk:

I have yet to grow weary taking in the scenes along the Dongcheon.
