Pho­tog­ra­pher’s Notes

China Scenic - - EXPLORE -

In the early au­tumn of 2009, my com­pan­ions, un­der­wa­ter pho­tog­ra­phers Zuo Lin­gren and Li Ji­afan, and I vis­ited the Pan­ji­akou Reser­voir again, sur­vey­ing the un­der­wa­ter ru­ins of the Pan­ji­akou and Xifengkou fortresses. Be­fore this, we dove here sev­eral times to in­ves­ti­gate the ba­sic un­der­wa­ter en­vi­ron­ment. One chilly early morn­ing, at six a.m., when the lake was shrouded in mist and all of our div­ing and shoot­ing equip­ment was loaded on a small iron sheet boat, we be­gan our jour­ney search­ing the un­der­wa­ter “Eight Tow­ers”,a clus­ter of watch­tow­ers at the Xifengkou Great Wall.
