Nice :thumbsup:

Between #1 and #2, I pefer the latter. In #1, the sun seems to have been pushed to a corner. And in #2, the glow of the sun can be seen (and felt) on the Great Wall itself. Very beautiful.

And what are the people doing in the last photo ? It seems mighty risky - for whatever its worth...

Thanks for Viewing !

In this photo(2007) U can see my friend & i try to:sweat: climb up one part of the Great Wall 箭扣长城天梯...total about 7 hrs trek & climb+shoot .:sweat:"to get the best view"

箭扣1


箭扣2


箭扣3


about箭扣野长城-天梯,天梯陡峭难行,倾斜角大概70~80度,攀升有难度,高度大概有十几米,且砖墙风化严重。爬过“天梯”就接近了箭扣最险要的制高点“鹰飞倒仰”。
1、部分长城已经坍塌,很多地方需要攀爬,请做好准备。
2、长城上长满了灌木,只有一人宽的小径供行走,
。

AWESOME !

Which month was the last photo taken in ? You must have gone after rains. The mountains are so lush green. I hiked from Gubeikou to Jinshanling to Simatai over three days in Dec 2007. The mountains were quite barren and dry because of the onset of winter. Posted some photos here.

Thanks for sharing some wonderful photos... Please do post more from your collection.

oh oh. sorry to hear that you lost your photos..

sure, one day if I do go back, will organize a ClubSNAP outing :D

Looks like you hiked from Simatai to Jinshanling. I did in the reverse direction.
BTW, your #5 is almost similar to #44 of mine (just that I shot it from one of the earlier towers as per the route you took) :)

nice shot tungtong..... #2 is the best here.

i find #3 a bit of a letdown.
