  1. Another spectacular shot from the Great Wall. I can see that this excursion was pure enjoyment for you.

    I love that dramatic sky. Did you use any filters in capturing this?

  2. The chiaroscuro interplay of light and dark textures captured here are extraordinary.

    We are adding your weblog to the list of blogs we follow at Old China Books.

    The cover image of the Great Wall on my Facebook page is a pen-and-ink drawing by G. H. Wyndham in 1861 that appears as the frontispiece of Peking and the Pekingese During the First Year of the British Embassy at Peking, by R. F. Rennie MD, John Murray, London, 1865 (digitized by Google Books in a pdf).
