There used to be a popular Korean drama, Jewel in the Palace. I haven't watched it, but I recognize the lead actress whom I recently saw on a TV commercial. She's no longer cooking for the king; she got promoted. She fixed her nose and now endorses a kitchen appliance.
But speaking of jewels and palaces, I was able to capture the Deoksugung Palace in Seoul, Korea, surrounded by its jewels of autumn foliage, bathed with warm sunlight on a cool day amidst the chaos of a busy city.
With all the yellows, oranges, reds, greens and browns, the foliage surrounds the palace, with all the surrounding office buildings guarding close by.
What makes autumn everyone's favorite?
Well, it's the cool temperatures after a scorching summer. And of course, the yellows, oranges, reds, greens, browns, and everything in between.
