Frozen in Time

Category: Sense of Place

Jeju Island was almost completely formed by volcanic eruptions several million years ago. Today, you can see oddly-shaped volcanic rock all along its beautiful coastline. It's particularly stunning here, at Yeongmori, and my goal on this day had been to photograph these beautiful rock formations. But, rough seas and high tide made it difficult to see them in the water. Changing my strategy to a long daylight exposure of several minutes allowed me to capture this scene.

Location: Yeongmori, Jeju Island, South Korea
