Colorful crab cages dot the landscape in the fishing "village' of Xiapu. The southern province of Fujian, which Xiapu is part of, produces 2/3rds of the world's seafood and crab cages, seaweed drying poles, and other pieces of equipment make great photography subjects due to the large scale and seemingly endless repetition.

The Great Wall
The Great Wall, even today, still is the largest structure ever buit. How great is it? The series of fortifications built across the historical northern border of China has a combined length of 13.171 miles!
Built in phases and under a variety of rulers/dynasties, it is believed that most of it was completed about 500 years ago. It served not only as a deterrent to various nomadic groups, but also to collect duties and to control immigration in general.​​​​​​​
The section shown is this image is located near Jinshanling, north of Miyun, Hebei Province. When standing on the wall, layers upon layers of mountains are seen on the horizon. The wall crosses everyone of them and many, many more.

Layers and layers of mountains as far as the eye can see. A panoramic view for the watchmen on the Great Wall. Where is the enemy coming from?

Near Guilin, Guanxi province. Another rainy day and a washed-out photo shoot. But while descending from "Five Finger" lookout, this unexpected view presented itself. A typical Guilin landscape depicting the endless rows of karst mountains and the river valleys between them.
Heavy clouds above and mist rising from the valley add to the many layers in this image.
