I’ve been fortunate enough to work in China on four different occasions, and on each I was able to visit a section of the Great Wall.  It is truly an amazing sight, but it is hard to capture that marvelous structure in a photograph.

I think the image above does a pretty good job of conveying the age and mystery of the Great Wall.  It is based on a photo I took at BaDaLing on my first visit to the wall in 1987.

The picture on which this image was based was scanned from a slide and iis shown below.
