The Great Wall (长成) in cold wintertime

These photos below are again digitalized from 10-year-old photos. There’s hardly any nature except the mountains, but the place and time of year resulted in very quiet circumstances, which are rarely seen around the Wall. I hope you’ll enjoy the photos.

The first series come from North of Beijing called Jinshanling.

These below are some older slides taken before the Gorges were buried below the raised level of the river following the full installation of the great dam. But the level of the river was already above the original as the first phase of water collection was already under way. Sorry for the quality, it comes from before the age of digital photography, but I thought they are still worth publishing as they show a world that nobody could take on new cameras or iPhones.
