My daughter spent a year in Busan South Korea teaching English to Korean children at a private school.
I was able to visit her twice during her stay in Busan. The first time visiting, we went to Beomesa, a Buddhist temple in the northwest of Busan in the mountains.
Unfortunately, we didn’t do our research (so we didn’t realize that there was a bus that went up the mountain) and we walked the 2km up the mountain to the main gates of Beomesa. In July, in the humidity and the heat. I was soaked with sweat!
Ah, the things I do for my daughter and to get some great shots of the temple!
While at the temple, I happened to look across the main courtyard to notice a monk tending to the altar in the main sanctuary, called Dae Woong Jeon. Using my EF-70-200mm F/4L at 200mm I was able to capture this moment in time as the monk lovingly and meticulously tended the altar before the three Buddhas, which are found in most temples, the Buddha of the past, the Buddha of the present, and the Buddha of the future.
Thanks for visiting!
