Nostalgic China 1992 – Temple of Heaven

In February/March 1992 I made a business trip to China. After my visit to Daqing and Harbin the north of China I returned to Beijing to attend an oil and gas conference. With my wife and two friends from Singapore we explored Beijing and the key sights including the Great Wall of China, Ming Dynasty Tombs and the Forbidden City. We took the opportunity to visit the Temple of Heaven which is an imperial complex of religious buildings situated in the southeastern part of central Beijing. The complex was visited by the Emperors of the Ming and Qing dynasties for annual ceremonies of prayer to Heaven for good harvest.

These photos were captured on a Canon film camera and the negatives subsequently scanned and then post processed in Capture One Pro. The image quality in many cases is rather poor as many of the negatives were damaged by heat and humidity over time but this is a wonderful record of this incredible journey in China.
