14th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel
Great Wall of China through the Great Wall of China

This photo was taken while climbing the Mu Tian Yu section of the Great Wall of China. While in one of the higher watchtowers, I looked back to discover this view of the Great Wall... or Long Wall, as the Chinese call it. Seeing it in this context, I could just imagine what the ancient Chinese saw from this vantage point.
