Grand Canal, Suzhou, 1989 by DaveR99 Grand Canal, Suzhou, 1989 by DaveR99
I think we've pretty much all heard of the Grand Canal of Venice and the Great Wall of China - but how many of you know about the Grand Canal of China? Yes, it's true. There is such a thing - and a very interesting section of it runs through or near the city of Suzhou (the place which legend says has the most beautiful women in China). It's really fascinating to take a ride on it to see how people go about their daily lives on the water.

It wasn't easy trying to manually focus on someone sitting in a moving boat while I was on a moving boat (perhaps going the opposite way), but I managed to pull off at least this one image, which is one of my favorites from the trip to China.

Great capture. I respect the difficulty you face with a moving target and a moving camera!
