Photo location:
Korean Tradition Village in Yongin (about 1 hour south of Seoul, about 15 minutes from Suwon)

Before the invention of kimchi refrigerators (which all Korean homes have aside from their regular refrigerators) they store the kimchi in jars like these during the winter.

Sometimes these jars are also buried under a makeshift hut.

Kimchi, btw, is a mix of (usually) cabbage, lettuce and radish pickled using chilli powder. Its a staple in the Korean diet.

Used a sketch action to improve texture and create a different look

Hello Allan,
Interesting tradition well depicted!
Fine repetition effect, scenery is well framed with a good note...
The composition is dynamic with good lines, the house in th back balance well!

Very nice picture, and I am very glad to have learn something from your picture. Nice details and sharpeness. Thanks for sharing.

Very neat shot and unusual subject ! I did not get time to get used to kimchi, but nonetheless, Korea would not be the same without it !

Beautiful and sharp image. Love the angle and partial desaturation and details to get the winter feel. And excellent framing.
