Living in South Korea has taught me about the value and need for solitude from time to time. I love Korea and it has a lot of beauty to offer. My favorite place to retreat to is Nami Island. It is true that Nami Island can be absolutely crowded with tourists who wish to visit the filming location of the drama Winter Sonata, but fortunately very few people ever explore the back of the island which is where this image was taken. I was able to watch the girl cycle on her bicycle for at least ten minutes before timing her and placing her in the frame exactly where I wanted. I wanted to capture exactly what I was experiencing at the time – stillness and beauty.
