The Ming Tombs are included in many package day trips to Badaling & the Great Wall. I thought this was a reasonable result, for holding one arm on my umbrella, & the other on my camera, in the pouring rain.
"The Ming Dynasty Tombs (Chinese: 明朝十三陵; pinyin: Míng cháo shí sān líng; lit. Thirteen Tombs of the Ming Dynasty) are located some 50 kilometers due North of Beijing at a specially selected site. The site was chosen by the third Ming Dynasty emperor Yongle (1402 - 1424), who moved the capital of China from Nanjing to the present location of northwest Beijing. The Ming tombs of the 13 emperors of the Ming Dynasty were located on the southern slope of Mount Taishou (originally Mount Huangtu)."

I do enjoy that kind of humide and rainy mood, a little sad, a little dark. And it's so chinese with that gate or tomb. And you've got a good colors contrast.

I found this one appealing because it just looked so WET in the thumbnail. I haven't seen any real WET for quite a while. It's more than a reasonable result, with the bright colours of the flower display so well rendered. The background is nicely balanced, too, with the tomb on one side and the tree on the other. Very successful umbrella photography! And clever you to get the Chinese characters into the note.
