When the sunlight pierced through the clouds, I gasped at these layers of mountains and decided to take them into my photo. Wow! the sun, the Great Wall, the mountains and the morning fog looked absolutely surreal! (GND was used to reduce the exposure to the bright sun and sky)

Words can't descripe.. how'd do it?

I just saw all your Great Wall series... If you intended to put me in awe you’ve surpassed your goal. Your photos show me how beautiful this region is and the unbelievably amount of human effort that was put into this immense structure… and they do so as stunning images. It’s remarkable how Chinese people achieved to build the wall in such mountainous piece of land – at least they had this scenario to inspire them.

Just imagine the tiny amount of solar light you’ve captured being released, reproduced and amplified many and many times all over the WWW. Figure out happy faces and souls being lit by these awesome images… Maybe all this human activity and energy will not surpass that energy employed to build the Great Wall, but you sure have a Great Photostream.

Greetings from Brazil

(GND was used to reduce the exposure to the bright sun and sky)能明白您的意思,有些自然景观,我们人类的技术还没办法用图像形式完全记录下来,这也是摄影的魅力所在,当时的景象一定应在您心里了,我也有过类似的经历
