This Sunday I went to Qianmen at night-time to try to capture the environment around Qianmen and was able to get a pretty good photo of this tree. At night, the Qianmen area in Beijing is all lit up with lights and makes for a great photo opportunity. Since 1419 during the Ming Dynasty, this gate guarded direct entry into the imperial city. During the day time there’s way too many people in Qianmen but at night there’s hardly anybody in this area. Here are some photos of the Archery Tower as well.
