The multilayered metropolis | This is Daegu, the third-largest city of South Korea, as seen from Apsan Mountain last month.
I was lucky to get one sharp shot just before sunset - even on a sturdy tripod, I could hardly keep my 100-400 mm lens still because of the fierce wind howling across the mountain top.
I was fascinated by the endless layers in this scene, which is why I zoomed in at 400 mm to get rid of all surrounding distractions and bring out the density that is so characteristic of South Korean megacities.
After all, what is photography but imposing a bit of order on the chaos of reality?
After a strenuous hike, not really knowing what to expect, I was happy to find one composition that I liked.
Prints of this photo - in a larger landscape format that shows many more buildings - are available. Feel free to DM me for more info. Particularly recommended for people who like to count windows.
