Deoksugung Palace at Night (덕수궁)

IMGP3679       Deoksugung Palace, in City Hall area, at night. I took a few extra shots with the city in the background. It’s, in-and-of-itself a very serene spot, but being couched next to Gwanghwamun square, a political and economic center as well as a site of regular protests, the city life bleeds in to it’s perimeters. Overlooking the corridor roofs, you can see the bright lights of the nearby big screen television advertisements as well as hear the yells of groups of protestors. Inside, it’s like stepping back in time. Tonight was my first time to visit the palace in dark, all lit up. Since the palace is only a 20 minute train ride away, I think I’ll start making night trips here a bit more regular.
