Fiery Autumn Sunset

I live in the World Cup Park Apartments, very near to Haneul Park, one of the must-go-to places during Autumn. I have always wanted to go up there to take pictures but strangely, the nearer we are the harder it seems to have the time to go to a place that others would schedule in advance.

Fortunately, 3 weeks ago my husband and I and the 2 boys finally did it on a Saturday afternoon. We timed to have a rendezvous with the setting sun up in the Haneul Park so we left the house at 4pm and walked our way up.

I took a few pictures of the Haneul’s Autumn Landscape but it was the red, fiery sunset that amazed me. These are all unedited photos of the sunset taken from my Canon using prime lens.

Me hidden behind the towering weeds that Haneul Park is known for during Autumn
It’s easy to get lost in this maze of Eulalia grasses
Shy but majestic
Playing peek-a-boo with the setting sun

They’re all ablazing!

But here’s the Haneul windmills with the almost disappearing sun.

Standing regal against the seemingly angry sky
A picture of calm

It was a great evening of leisurely walk punctuated by the boys’ laughters. They brought their soccer ball to entertain themselves knowing fully well that I could lose myself when I start tinkering with my camera. We went back home with everyone a little bit tired but satisfied. When I finally sat down and checked my photo files , I saw this another photo of a sunset from my veranda taken not so long ago. Somewhere in that horizon is the Haneul Park from where I took photos of those flaming sunset.


Well… different time, different place, different perspective. All with the same object.

‘Tis not a simple world.

  1. The fall colors generally get the majority of praise, but Autumn also has such stellar sunsets. We, too, enjoy long evening walks, but I fear their length is getting too short for us to enjoy any longer. There’s always next year’s Autumn to fool forward to, I guess. These are good photos, they really capture the light.

  2. I love Autumn and I’m sad I didn’t photograph it more this year. It rained for 3 weeks straight here in Pohang – all of November! Washing away all of the leaves 🙁 Lovely pictures

    1. Thanks. To be so near this beautiful place and what it represents (previously a landfill and now with a well-maintained facility) and conveniently walking distance to my children’s school is a big bonus to us.
