Saturday Snapshot - Great Wall


Son23 has been in China since July for work (he comes back in a couple of weeks *big grin*) and sent us this photo of a recent trip to the Great Wall. How impressive is this structure and landscape?!

What a beautifully framed shot. You must be counting down the sleeps til he comes home.

That is an incredible view. China always sounds so exotic. My Snapshot is at http://goo.gl/CQuKI

That's a lovely shot. The framing makes it unusual from the common shots of the Great Wall.

I also like how the person taking the photo framed the shot and the background is lovely too.

the great wall of China is one of those things on my "want to see on day" list. That's a great shot too, I love how the wall goes right along the mountain like that-- Book Savvy Babe

What a beautiful angle looking at the Great Wall. I visited there years ago, but haven't seen that part of the wall. You must be very excited about your son's homecoming. Now, I assume 23 refers to his age? If so, he's the same age as my son. ;)

Trish said...

Yup! :)

Irene said...

I see your big grin, he did a great job with that wonderful shot.
