This week’s DP challenge is Path.
This is another view of a path at the Great Wall, during Autumn.
The view, with the Autumn colors, is common place during Autumn.
Two years ago, I have a series known as The Impressions of Autumn.
I don’t think I have showcased all the photos.
This is a continuation of the series.
Unlike the rest of my other photos which were mainly taken while walking the wall, this photo was taken from a low angle.
I went down to a lower level to take this photo while the sun was setting.
Autumn was in the trees and everywhere.
We were there at the best of time for the Great wall.
It was Autumn and the air was crispy clean.
The light fell softly on the foliage on both sides of the Wall.
Not only that, the light has illuminated the walls, giving them a last touch of warmth.
We were blessed to be there, at the right time and the right place.
Hope you enjoy them!
This week’s DP theme for the photo challenge is Time.
The Great Wall has been built thousands of years ago; this is still one of the longest structures in the World.
Wish these walls could talk; so that they can tell us their stories.
I have converted them to Black and White, emphasizing the timelessness.
The original photos were taken during Autumn with some color foliage around.
The B&W, however, evoke more moods.
The next three days are public holidays for the Lunar New Year; so be prepared that there may not be any posting during the period.
Few people do not know that the Great Wall has been a boundary that kept the “barbarians” out of medieval China.
The wall now attracts visitors from all over the world.
The boundary, which gallops through hilly terrain, is an ideal place to view colored foliage during Autumn.
