Autumn colours at Olympic Park @ Seoul, South Korea

Seoul was the host city for the 1988 summer Olympic. Although after 13 years passed, the Olympic park is still maintain in good condition and has become one of the tourist attraction area. It was during Olympic 1988 which the biggest drug scandal happened. Ben Johnson who won the 100 metre race by breaking the world record was disqualified as he was tested positive for steroid usage. His record is almost 0.2 seconds faster than the previous world record. It shows an amazing results from steroid usage.

Below are a few shots which I took during my visit to the Olympic park during autumn 2011.
