These rare photographs of deserted Great Wall of China look hauntingly surreal

When it comes to visiting the seventh wonder of the world, the majestic Great Wall of China, you surely do not expect to be the only one over there. Hence all the images of the place are mostly swamped with tourists in the background, making it hard to differentiate the wonder of the world from any other wall from anywhere else in the globe. However, architectural photographer Andres Gallardo Albajar got extremely lucky in finding the Great Wall of China in midst of thick fog with not a single soul in sight in February this year. The photographer took full advantage of the situation and clicked a lot of detailed photographs of the wall with no other person in the frame. Moreover, the fog gave the photographs a natural mysterious touch which made them stand out from the rest of the images clicked at this place.

“I was expecting big amounts of people, even lines to access or things like that, but for my surprise there were very few people, which allowed me to capture the wall with no people, which in my opinion helps to create a more surreal and magic feeling,” Albajar stated.
