Thank you chrmt. I assure you it was a voyage of a lifetime, and now that the Dam has been built it is a very special historical photo, as far as I am concerned.

Warm regards,

Thank you Ibrahim. For hundreds of kilometres, the Yangtze flows through stunning limestone landscapes like this.

Greetings from Australia to Turkey, sir. Thanks for your appreciative comment, M.Babayiğit. These towering limestone walls are still there, but the Three Gorges Dam has since drowned the rest.

Hi Gosto. I was delighted with this photo, of course, though the experience of being on the great Yangtze was incredibly special. But now that the Three Gorges Dam has been built here, this photo becomes an especially precious image.

Kind regards,

Blessings 정인우,

I am so pleased that you like this image. It was a great privilege for me to be there at that time. Today this location is just behind the wall of the great dam in the Gorges.

Thank you for your appreciation,

Hi Ralph,

Life is like sailing into the unknown!

It was a special cruise, and the landscapes were awesome!
