The Great Wall



(This picture can be enlarged by clicking on it.)

I took this picture of a watch tower on the Great Wall on my second visit to the wall in 1990. The watch tower overlooks the pass at Badaling north of Beijing. I thought sepia is a good effect for the Great Wall.

I agree about the sepia. Makes it look so timeless, which the Great Wall is.

That must have been really great to walk the wall. I'd love to do that some day.

Wonderful in sepia, George. I'm sure this looks a lot like many truly old photos of the wall.

WOW! You've been to China twice?

Sepia is perfect for the picture. I can only imagine how awesome it must be to see the Great Wall in person.

Sepia is the right selection for this photo. Recently I saw a document from this historical wall in China in our television.

I like Your photo George, it is gorgeous.
