On my last evening in Seoul and the temperature way below freezing, it seemed like a really good idea to walk to the top of Namsan mountain to get an overview of the city by night. The view was spectacular, but to capture this 20 second exposure (and a few more later on) I had to use my jacket as support for my camera and lens… It wasn’t pleasant, but at least I got the photo I was looking for.
