Photo of the day – Sunrise at the Great Wall, Jinshanling
Sunrise at the Great Wall, Jinshanling
This image was taken in China in 2006 when one of our photographers spent a month travelling the country to photograph the Great Wall and the surrounding landscape for a photographic immersive that was featured in our exhibition The Great Wall of China: dynasties, dragons and warriors.
This shot was taken at sunrise showing the eastern section of the Great Wall at Jinshanling located in the Hebei Province approximately 120 km from Beijing. Check this great 360 degree panorama of the Great Wall and landscape at Jinshanling by Sleep on the Great Wall .
