A friend and I went to Jingshan Park and climbed on top of the hill located right in the middle of the park. We went there to photograph autumn leaves but was disappointed because the leaves were still green.

When we were on top of the hill, a temple built in honor of someone ancient, is the rendezvous for visitors who are eager to see the panoramic vista of Beijing in all directions.


for those of you who will ask, yes, it's a camera. :))

The ancient roofs you see are the ones from Forbidden City.

      Great set, and interesting to see the contrast between the old and new buildings.

      Really great shots! What an interesting view of the city. I like how you framed the shots with the trees and windows. :)
