The photo was taken in Jingshan Park at the top of the Pavilion Spring directly opposite the Forbidden City.
Constructed close to six centuries ago by more than 200,000 workmen, the imposing Forbidden City is the best preserved and most complete collection of imperial architecture in China. The complex was home to a string of emperors, starting with Yongle, in 1420, and ending with Puyi (made famous by Bernardo Bertolucci’s film “The Last Emperor”), who did not leave until he was forced out in 1924.
The Forbidden City was declared a World Heritage Site in 1987 as the "Imperial Palace of the Ming and Qing Dynasties."
Good morning Claire!
what a lovely work you brought to me .. fantastic details
of man's work. i like to think of the lives lived there.. love the tones and fading of colors .. just like the memories that still linger but are not complete anymore... great Claire.. your work inspires me always
Lovely setting. You worked on this one quite a bit, colour-wise, I suppose. I have been to Jingshan Park many times, but have never been able to capture the Forbidden City as wonderfully as you have.
