Weekly Photo Challenge: BEYOND

One of the places I loved the most in Beijing was the park behind the Forbidden City, Jingshan Park. Climbing on its hill gave me the spectacular view of the Forbidden City!

Forbidden City

I liked how the buildings of the palace clustered from a bird’s eye view, compared to seeing it one by one while walking on the palace’s grounds.

This is my entry to this week’s photo challenge. For other fabulous rendition on the theme, click here.

Have a great weekend everyone! Happy travels!
