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.
This week’s DP challenge is Under Your Feet.
A few years back, on a fine Autumn day, we found ourselves hiking the beautiful Miutianyu section of the Great Wall.
We were overjoyed that the GW was not very crowded and we were able to enjoy the serenity.
After so many years of not being able to revisit this place, we found that the GW was actually under our feet!
I have posted quite a lot on the Great Wall, China.
All my photos posted so far have the wall on them. But for a change, this photo is only on the foliage – a view overlooking from the wall.
It was a hazy afternoon and the sun was about to set. Beijing, as usual, was hazy – but this added to the atmosphere, I like the softness of the picture with the hill ridges in shadows.
