[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The transport of bulky cargoes such as sand, coal, gravel and diesel is undertaken by these barges on the Grand Canal in China. It is a fascinating place to visit and see the amazing amount of traffic on the canal. these barges are very low in the water - it would worry me I think!
The Grand Canal is the oldest and longest man-made waterway in the world. Building started in 486 BC and it stretches 1795 km with 24 locks and 60 bridges.

Hi Jean: I love the hustle and bustle in this one and I love photos of bardges. The POV, perspective and colour make this a very interesting photo........thanks for showing......Roman:0)

Hi Jean,

Interesting picture . . I fully agree with you when visiting China, that everything is huge and large . .
It's too risky delivering this huge load with that kind of level . .
You did great capturing it . . Lovely composition too, by showing the two brideges and other huge ships at the BG . .
Well done . .


Many thanks for your kind words on New little friend .
