As the tourists return home the sun sets on what was a scorching and dry sum-mer. It was also a record-breaking sum-mer for Jeju tourism; the beaches had never been so packed with tourists from both Korea and abroad.Photographer Douglas MacDonald went out and got these late-evening shots as the summer drew in. He had this to say:
“The sights and sounds of summer are all around me: tents, umbrellas, barbecues, the smells of food and suntan oil, young men playing an informal game of soccer, children flitting in and out of the surf, others screaming as waves crash into their brightly colored, oversized inner tubes.
A dark cloud drifts by as the sun begins to set. Rays of light shoot through the cloud in all directions as couples young and old look on in awe.
The sun’s pinkish orb dips below the horizon and I turn to go home. Behind me the light show continues. A magnificent purple and orange mushroom cloud billows in the early evening sky. A young woman stops for a few seconds to look up at the wondrous sight. A perfect day at the beach.”
