天坛 by JulienFolcher

Temple of Heaven in Beijing. Probably the most beautiful temple in Beijing, maybe China (in my opinion), it was used by the emperor to pray for good harvests during the spring festival.

I went there yesterday end of afternoon, the place was packed with tourists (it’s the national holiday now in China), I’ve never seen that many people here during my previous visits. I had to wait until they almost closed the park to get this shot without the stairs being submerged with people… And even then I stayed still for about 20 minutes just waiting for the moment. I still had to clone-stamp out a few tourists on the top platform…

It is a truly beautiful place, I hope my photograph gives it justice.
