I was lucky enough to spot this guy up above the gate watching the changing of the guard.  I was really happy with how all the colors came out.

After Chang Deok Gung, we got back on the bus, we toured a couple other sights and then ended up here at the biggest palace.  We were just in time to see the changing of the guards, which was really cool.  They all still had ancient weapons.  We didn't have enough time to go in and tour the palace, but we enjoyed the guards.

This is my last photo from our Christmas trip to Washington.  I didn't have a tripod as we were just out looking for a way to cross the river so there was only so much I could do with this shot.

We spent about half the day looking at a few of the palaces, but really needed at least one full day just to do that as we didn't have enough time when we finally got to the main one to go inside and explore.

Dongdaemun Wall

Seoul, Korea
November 25, 2012
Nikon D3100: Tamron 18-270 at 55 mm: ISO 360: 1/500 sec.: f/11
On our way home from Thailand, we picked an awesome flight from Bangkok that left at around 11 pm and got into Seoul at 5 am.  We did this so we could have a 12 hour layover in Seoul to explore the city.  While we had a terrible flight there, we forgot all worries once we realized how awesome Korea is.  It reminded us both a lot of Japan and it was nice to be somewhere clean and efficient again.  We decided to do the city tour bus since we had limited time and wanted to see as much as we could.  One of our first stops was the Dongdaemun Market.  Apparently the market wasn't open that day, but the wall was pretty cool.

Nikon D3100: Tamron 18-270 at 42 mm: ISO 280: 1/500 sec.: f/11
This shot was done on our hike down the mountain and, as you can see, the sun was no longer shining on them almost turning them a different color.

Wild Monkeys

One of the coolest parts of our morning hike up to the Tiger Cave Temple was the monkeys!  We saw three sets of monkeys: the few lone monkeys at the bottom that were running around; a set in the middle that mainly stuck around in the trees; and a very aggressive pack on top that kept harassing the group of highschoolers that followed us up.  You can probably guess these guys came from the middle pack.

TIger Cave Temple Golden Chedis

Krabi, Thailand
November 24, 2012
Nikon D3100: Tamron 18-270 at 70 mm: ISO 400: 1/320 sec.: f/10
Our last day in Thailand, we decided to wake up early and hike up to the Tiger Cave Temple before our flight.  It was pretty intense, but we made it to the top soaking in sweat while we saw other throwing up over the railing.  All along the stairs were these small golden chedis.  Each of them contain  belongings of important monks from the temple.  This row of chedis was at the very bottom and because we were there soon after sunrise, the low sun was hitting the left side of the chedis and making them glow.
