Paul says…

Getting to the top of the Mutianyu Great Wall before sunrise requires some planning and assistance to say the least, especially in the middle of winter. We very nearly didn’t make it, but just before sunrise we got to the perfect spot to watch the sun rise over the wall and illuminate the mist that had appeared overnight.

It’s simply not possible to show in one photograph quite how massive the Great Wall of China is, so I decided to create an image which demonstrates the sereneness of sunrise on the icy wall on that winter morning. It was freezing cold, it was a tough climb, but it was worth it.

There were of course a few strange looks from the ‘first’ group of the day up there as we passed them on our way down…
