Exercise on the Great Wall

This weekend I decided to head up onto the Great Wall of China for some exercise. Trekking up and down the walls is a great way to get a head of steam going,  and to also take in one of the worlds great wonders.

I chose Simatai, a place I’ve been quite a few times before as it’s incredibly beautiful and incredibly challenging for a trek. The day was not too fantastic (photographically speaking) but was “Ok”.

    Thanks for sharing, Rob.
    China Great Wall is higher on my list of places to go. Hopefully next year I can go.
    I imagine going there during winter would be very bad … but the photo opportunity could be great. Do you think so ?ReplyCancel

    Great photos Rob. Hiking the wall looks like a strenuous exercise. How far did you hike?ReplyCancel

    This is fantastic Rob, pleasing narrative with just the right tone, and a good selection of images which ably complement the words. Great job.ReplyCancel

On a Tiger shoot

There is many a person who struggles to understand how photos of “Tigers running” is done. It certainly looks like we are in there with them, usa but this, discount like most things photographically, is an illusion.

We are based in Thailand, so we have access to many areas that have wild and captive Tigers. Wild Tigers are virtually impossible to Photograph in Thailand and we have not been overly interested in trying to state them out in the jungle. Sao is probably a tasty snack, where I am probably a full roast dinner. There are no “safari” type organisations here for that sort of thing, and I would think that the wild Tigers are few and far between in reality.
