Another long and winding path along the Great Wall of China at Mutianyu. Spectacular vista all around (except for that brutal sun and cloudless sky). This was, believe it or not, still before 9:00 am. I hope everyone can also appreciate the patience level I had in trying to capture images of the Great Wall without people!!! I’m planning on returning one day after I come up with a solid evacuation plan for the area and after becoming friends with the weather man!

Since joining RB I’ve greatly enjoyed being part of a lovely community of wonderful people. I’ve also made some new friends that I hope to meet one day in person. I have several passions/hobbies/professions (music, photography, martial arts & yes environmental engineering to name a few)! I am very blessed being able to work in all of these. Please feel free to visit & provide honest opinion on my photos as I am still learning (a day that goes by without learning anything is a wasted day).

    Excellent use of a low point of view to give the image depth.

  • Thank you William. Appreciate the wonderful feedback my friend. Your comments have been very encouraging and inspiring.

    Haha, I’m planning a trip to the Great Wall this year, and predict that I will be like you- waiting seemingly endlessly for the crowds to disappear before taking a shot. It looks so small amongst the vastness of the mountains – incredible to think how it was built, and how long it actually is! Lovely capture, well done.

  • Hi Nupur; it is a great place to go visit and spend at least a day; you will need that just to walk a few kilometers and appreciate the beauty of this place and take a gazillion photos like I did. And depending on what time of year and how early you get there, you may need to battle the crowds, but I warn you, it will be very difficult to get a shot without people in it. ON the positive side, these people may show a sense of scale in the image. It will be a very enjoyable trip I promise you. Thank you for your lovely comment. Much, much appreciated.

    How far did you walk? I managed to go for quite awhile but then I gave out….. decided I had to get back somehow….. The section that we walked was all uphill with some very steep steps. Excellent capture, Hany

  • Hi Lucinda; the Chinese driver that I went with (whom I subjected to my photography torture (LOL) and became a friend at the end of a 2 day trip through the mountains) tells me we walked almost 8 kilometers through this section, one way. And as you know, to every downhill (as appears in this photo), there is an uphill (LOL). It was very tiring, but lots of fun. Thank you so much Lucinda for your visit and very kind comment. I am glad you like this. Thank you.

    fantastic capture! awesome perspective!
    you must have a patience of a saint :)
    sometimes it is possible to take the same exposure several times (a tripod helps) and clone the people out afterwards. that’s how I took the image of the British Museum in London (always full of visitors).

  • Hi Irina; I have to admit – I don’t really have a lot of patience, especially when travelling overseas to places like this and having only a few hours to photograph a place of this majesty and this spread. But I also have less patience to work with computers and “erase” people. I just stand there as long as I can and switch places and directions and angles and wait till people disappear then I run back to the location that I want. Sometimes it works; other times, I just “swear” a lot (LOL). Oh well…. we all try our best. Thank you so much for your wonderful comment and the great feedback. Much appreciated.
