Best places for photography on the Great Wall in December

I am a photographer and interested in taking photographs of the most beautiful sections of the great wall, including wall, watch towers, and natural scenery around. Which sections of the Great wall (Simatai, Jinshanling, Mutianyu, etc) do you suggest? Hopefully, section where you can see several towers in one shot, and steep views of the wall from high to low. I plan to be there in mid-december. Yes, I know it will be cold, and in fact, I HOPE there will be snow (more interesting pictures). Do you have any suggestions on which 2 or 3 sections will be the best to visit? Hiking is not a problem, but photography is the priority.

Actually Spring and Autumn are the best time to visit the Great Wall and the scenery in Simatai, Jinshanling and Mutianyu are the most beautiful. But if you visit in winter, I suggest you hike the Badaling or Mutianyu sections. Because there will be snow and ice in winter time, other sections are comparatively dangerous than Badaling and Mutianyu. The scenery in the two sections are also very beautiful with snow covered in winter.
