Great Wall - Simatai to Jinshanling
[Photos from my November 2001 trip to China, for five days of sponsored walking on the Great Wall, in aid of the National Star Centre.]

We were told beforehand that the second day's walking, from Simatai to Jinshanling, would be the best and indeed it was. It was really tough going (especially having done an extra bit at the start), but it was oh-so-beautiful: really classic wall, and incredible surroundings. I spent most of the day walking with Louisa, another photo-nut, who shared the "Most Boring Conversation" award with me at the end of the week, thanks to our endless ramblings about apertures, exposures, etc. Great fun.

It's got to be said: this was a truly great day, one of the best I've ever had.
