Jeju Island :-)

These pics are from my trip to Jejudo Island.  Jeju is kinda like Hawaii is for us, a vacation get away.  It’s a semi tropical climate and the Island is made from volcanoes.  To drive from top to bottom would take about 2 hours and to go from side to side would take about 3 hours.  Strangely, the tallest Mt. in Korea is Mt. Halla  which is in the center of Jeju Island and every thing goes out from there.  I’m pretty confident in saying that there are no active volcanoes in Korea.  If there is, I’ve not heard of it.

The landscape of Jeju I think is more striking when viewing it from a distance.  The horizon is filled with stand alone Mts.   Not something I’m used to seeing when looking at Mts.  Halla has a Mt. range, (hard to call it a range since it’s geographically so small :-) but outside of that, the valleys are long and flat, not what we are used to for valleys at all.  It’s really quite beautiful.

The first day of our trip you will see pics from a volcano, a waterfall, and a coast line.  The next day was Sunday, so after church, lunch and a nap lol, we went to Woodo Island which is a very small island off of the eastern side of Jeju.  Monday we got up at 4:30 so I could get some incredible sunrise shots.  Well, there were a lot of clouds to look at. :-P  I did get a few pics, but it was long after sunrise when the clouds finally move off.  Nut bunnies!  The comments below the sunrise pics are taken from tourist info that I have.  We then went to Halla Mt. and then back to bed.  4:30 with a major climb is just too much lol.  After our nap is was back to the airport and grub at another most wonderful restaurant.

Well, I hope you enjoy the pics and can get at least some idea of what Jeju is like.  You better enjoy them!  It took me 4 hours to do all of the work needed to post them :-P  But, you are worth it and I love the comments.  Nothing but love for ya baby, nothing but love.  lol

Nice pis Ken. Especially the one of you....he he...unfortunately these photos are not hi enough resolution to put on my desk top. What's with that eh? I wanted to rip some off...

Hmmm, great dilemma eh. Well, maybe if you asked the photographer, you might persuade him to send you some high quality email photos. Just a thought.

One thing's for certain, for a small fee, almost anything can be accomplished :-P

Very nice, and we do appreciate the hard work that you put into the photos (it really is fun to see the place where you're staying)

Your waterfall shot is fabulous and I like the spider pics too (your camera does really well on the macro photos).

Sherry and I just got back from a little trip too -- we went to Peurto Vallarta in Mexico. It was beautiful and hot. We had a chance to see a little of what the local culture is like, but there was mostly touristy things to see. We enjoyed the sandy beaches (unlike Sarnia and your coral beach!).

Now, the most pressing question I have is... why would you hike up a mountain wearing a necktie...?

Darren-s back! I was getting worried that you had given up on me cause of my slower blogging pace these days. :) Goood to have you back in the fold so to speak.

Sounds like you had a wonderful time. I'm so glad to hear it. Do you still have a blog? What about you there Al?

Any one seen Greg lately? I haven't heard from him since I told him to use information lol :-)

k, your question really has me confused???? I don't get it. I re-read me blog posts, and well, where did you get a neck tie???? Nothing kills a joke worse than having to x-plain it, but....I'm not a proud man, what can I say. I'll risk looking stupid if it means I can understand. :-)

As to me camera, yep, overall I'm pretty happy with it. It does take some beauty pics. It has two macro modes, macro and super-mac. I've only used the super mac once or twice. The spidy pics are just regular old mac. Good thing the spiders weren't jumpy. :-S lol

I think the one photo looks like you have a tie on.....I have a blog but not in use.

Ok, you're right, Al, it only _looks_ like a tie (that's what you get for reading a blog half asleep!) Sorry, Ken, no tie, just a dark shirt under an unbuttoned light shirt. *sigh*.

We had a fabulous time in Mexico - nice spiders down there too. Glad to be back home in my own bed, and back on the internet!


Unfortunately I have no time to maintain a blog, and it has now become what's known on the internet as a cob-web. *heavy sigh*.

Super macro on those spiders would have let you see the expression on their wicked little faces! Yikes!

oh ya nice shootin, great pics. it not all in the camera. trust me. I was talked into a phone/camera and have abused it ever since :) (about 3900 pics in 5 months) Problem? what problem? I will point my finger at you when the cramps go away and the surgery to remove it from my fingers is a success :)

Oh that's too funny. Need to buy a splint for that finger I think.

I finally figured out who you are, it's Greg! Nice to have you back. It took me a bit but I worked it out. The temps you faced in Wyoming sound pretty nasty. I know certian places out there get darn right dasterdly.
