Memories of China

I hope you have all had a great Easter break and that it passed safely for your families. I started my series from China with a photo from the Great Wall and I wanted to end on the same note. This is going back to our second day of the trip when we were able to experience the Wall on a beautiful clear morning. It is one our most treasured memories and it is quite unbelievable to realise that half a year has passed already since we travelled to China.

The section of the Wall that we saw was situated close to Beijing and close to other smaller local towns, so it was not too isolated. If I had to imagine what the more rugged parts of the Wall looked like, I would consider this photo to be my starting point. This section was located on the opposite side of the road to the section that we climbed. I liked how it was perched on the ridge and also loved the mountain scenery in the background. The side light sculpted the mountains beautifully as well, giving extra depth to the scene. Looking at this view really felt like seeing the Wall how it used to be back when it was built with nothing much else around but the structure itself.
