Forbidden City panorama – Photo of the day
Forbidden City panorama
- This panorama of the Northeastern, corner tower of the Forbidden City, has been stitched together from 3 individual shots. One of our photographers spent a month in China roaming around the Great Wall and the landscape carrying the medium format Hasselblad gear to shoot for the exhibition The Great Wall of China: dynasties, dragons and warriors.
The Forbidden City, according to Wikipedia, is located in the middle of Beijing and was once the home of the Emperor and the Chinese government. Since 1924 it has been the home of the Palace Museum and houses an extensive collection.
