Nature Overtakes the Great Wall

Travel photographer Trey Ratcliff took this incredible photograph that shows nature slowly overgrowing a section of the Great Wall of China. Trey says it was in the northern part of the wall, about a half-mile hike from a resort called ‘Commune by the Great Wall‘.
The resort is accessible from The Great Wall Exit at Shuiguan, off Beijing’s Badaling Expressway. It is nestled in the Shuiguan Mountains amidst 8 square kilometers of private land and is about 75 minutes from Beijing International Airport and Beijing’s city center.
