The Stones of Jeju Island, South Korea, Part 1steemCreated with Sketch.

in photo •  2 months ago

These pictures were taken on Jeju, South Korea. It is a volcanic island and the people there use this native lava stone very widely. In the countryside particularly, almost every wall is made from volcanic stones stacked like the top picture. There is a wonderful folk village there, where I snapped these other images.

I have more of these photographs and will follow with another post soon.

Artsy!
South Korea is beautiful

You been to Korean lately? Awesome!

Hi @thatindianlady, I have seen Lava in Hawaii and they are black which is definitely similar to those in Korea. Is there any significant meaning to the way the piling of the tower of the stones was done? Interesting structures of their housing from your photos. Thanks for sharing.
