Photographer's Note

"Taejongdae is a natural park of Busan, South Korea, with magnificent cliffs facing the open sea, on the southernmost tip of the island of Yeongdo-gu. It is a representative visitor attraction of Busan, which has dense evergreen trees, and several facilities for tourists, such as an observatory, an amusement park, a light house, & a cruise ship terminal. It is said that its name is taken from King Taejong Muyeol (604 - 661 ad), the 29th king of the Silla Kingdom, who liked to practice archery at this place, after the unification of the Three Kingdoms of Korea. Taejongdae is designated as the 28th Busan monument, along with Oryukdo Island."
