Inside one of the small side temples at Bomunsa Temple on Seokmodo Island, west of Ganghwado Island, also west of Seoul. From Wikitravel: "Bomunsa (보문사). High up on Seokmodo Island, this temple is located in a scenic grotto with rock carvings and is famous as a place for women to pray for sons. Getting there is half the fun: take a bus from Ganghwa-eup to Oepo-ri (30 min, every 30 min), cross by ferry to Seokmodo (W2000; 10 min, every 30 min), and then take a shuttle bus (W1000) to the temple. 1500 won"

There was no shuttle bus when I visited, but Korean drivers were kind enough to drive me the short distance to & from the temple. I normally don't like using flash but did so here to fill in the bg shadows. I will try the tissue trick next time!

We are treated to an abundance of colours and textures, shapes and line here, nice touch with the angle used up into one of the corners. Much interest here, the cute additions of images on the lanterns catches the eye, very well taken Chris, have a good one.
