3000 years old by foureyes 3000 years old by foureyes
The Great Wall of China ‘zig-zags’ central-east Asia, and it is an incredible structure.
It took over a thousand years to build and is over 1500 miles in length,
……… 3000 years old! The bricks alone would build four Egyptian pyramids!
It is the longest, oldest, most time consuming construction project ever attempted in history,
...... It is estimated that over one million people worked in the construction of the Great Wall,
Neil Armstrong (the Apollo astronaut) said that it could even be seen from space.
(…some people belive this is a myth,….I haven’t been up there yet :D )

It is a one of a kind experience to visit the this breathtaking place,.............:faint:
….be sure to put this on your ’list’ of things to do during your lifetime.

I took this photo at the highest point of the Wall at the Badalin area, about an hour and a half away from Beijing.

The Great Wall has become a symbol of the "indestructible spirit of the Chinese people".....:nod:
............ You can feel that spirit grow within yourself as you explore the Wall.

This is such a fantastic shot. That filter really makes a difference on a shot like this; I just love the diffusion of the light from the sun. The atmosphere it creates is dramatic and breathtaking, especially against a backdrop like the one you have. The photograph ‘rocks’ good buddy!!!
