Icheon, South Korea —
Danny and I have already been on countless road trips even way before we became friends. Just the idea of it excites us. However for the sake of practicality, we couldn’t go as far as Gurye in South Jeolla Province to enjoy the beauty of the Cornelian Cherry (산수유 / Sansuyu) since we can reach a nearby location which is in Icheon Baeksa Village. The festival is famous for its over 100-year-old native sansuyu trees that have grown in the village. We went few days prior to its actual festival date (April 7-9, 2017) to avoid the crowd.
The afternoon was warm and sunny. A good timing to take snapshots of the yellow trees with a lovely white and blue backdrop. Surely, the trip inspired me to practice my burning passion for photography and explore more on what spring has to offer.
