Autumn in Colorado

I've been away from my blog for a while due to assorted reasons (family and generally being busy), but here's a quick Skywatch Friday post from a hike last weekend to Lilypad Lake in Summit County. First is one of my look-up-with-the-fisheye shots.
The aspen were at their colorful peak.
Here's Lilypad Lake - the reward for hiking up to 9,900 feet (3 km) elevation.
Comments are welcome but I don't promise to respond promptly at this time. Hopefully I can become a regular blogger again at some point.

Deoksugung Palace (2)

Here are some more shots of the wonderful Deoksugung Palace in Seoul, South Korea. I don't remember the details of each building.
Here are a couple of photos looking in - clearly it's a ceremonial building of some kind.
Everything is decorated and well-kept.
Looking more closely brings out more detail.
And even more.

Deoksugung Palace (1)

After Japan, we spent a few days in Seoul, South Korea, visiting friends, family, and of course various sights around the city.
According to Wikipedia, Deoksugung Palace (λ•μˆ˜κΆ) is one of the "Five Grand Palaces" built by the kings of the Joseon Dynasty.
It became a royal residence in 1592, after other palaces were destroyed.
Restoration work is ongoing, and it's a must-see sight.
The grounds are beautiful and peaceful, in the middle of this huge city.
I'll show more of this grand palace next week.
