Nojeok Hill, My View from the Top – (Almost) Full Moon Over Ansan

The Korean Chuseok holiday took place this weekend to celebrate the harvest full moon. It is one of the two major Korean holidays of the year (the other being the Lunar New Year).

I took this photo of the full moon early in the morning today from Nojeok Hill facing west. In the distance on the right, you can faintly see the new skyscrapers of Songdo IBD (click the photo for a bigger view), the latest Korean new city, which is being built on reclaimed land off Incheon [EXPIRED LINK REMOVED:] (and very close to the place of MacArthur’s famous Incheon Landing on September 15, 1950).
