Photographer's Note

Being the ancient military defence project, Great Wall is symbol and proud of China.
It is convenient to visit Great Wall from Beijing. There are many sections of Great Wall around Beijing city. Badaling Great Wall is the site of the most visited section of the Great Wall partly because it is close to Beijing city and connected with urban area by expressway.
This section of wall is the first section opened to tourists (in 1957) after reconstructed. Badaling Great Wall shows the Great Wall as it would have looked originally, and it does not look too new. That is another reason of why most travelers choose Badaling Great Wall.
I went there in the morning and got a little bit disappointed because all the time the sun was at the wrong side. Eventually almost at the end I managed to take this shot which shows not only the Great Wall but also its surroundings.
