The presence of the wall blew my mind. Meandering for over 5,000 miles, my two biggest challenges were finding the right location and the right light. Without knowing any Chinese, I tried my best to communicate with the locals and investigate the best places to shoot the wall. I received many different answers that led to many different places. I had no idea what the light would do, or where I would shoot. As I approached the wall, a whole new world opened up. I was amazed to see such a miraculous man-made landscape unfold in front of my eyes. I wanted to be in 10 places at once! At the last hour of the day, I had to make a choice – hike the wall east or west. I chose west and it paid off. Gorgeous clouds gathered on the horizon as God’s rays back-lit the mountains. It felt like I was in heaven. I shot like a madman till total darkness. The feeling was incredible – I hope you can share it with me, when looking at this image.
