China, Xian – Shooting the Terracota Warriors

Here I am shooting theTerracota Warriors in Xi’an – Shaanxi Province, China.

It really is a mind blowing attraction.

It’s estimated that there are more than 8,000 soldiers, 130 chariots with 520 horses and 150 cavalry horses in the three pits. Other terracotta non-military figures were found in other pits, including officials, acrobats, strongmen and musicians.

I ended up going in high-season – try and avoid this if you can, it was mental and the noise was unbelievable as there were thousands of people there which marred my enjoyment slightly but nonetheless it is an incredible awe inspiring sight.

Here’s a screen shot of some of the photographs I took while I was in China:
