From The Top of the Great Wall

Schemer

Have you heard of Google Schemer?  I believe it is in beta.  That is a link to my personal page… It’s a fun way to find things to do “in the real world” and I’ve been using it from time to time.

If you want an invite, watch my Google+ Stream later today for a little giveaway…

Daily Photo – From The Top of the Great Wall

Far in the north, this area of the Great Wall has been overgrown with vegetation.  Birds and little creatures are all over the place.  A path has been made over time, and it weaves in and out of these overgrown bits.  The wall is so wide that it’s sometimes easy to forget that you are standing on top of a huge structure.

    Schemer looks interesting. Maybe I can catch an invite later on today before I head to work.

    Incredible, vibrant colours bring real warmth to this shot. Beautiful.

    What a creative composition!  The little curvy path leading your eye to the fortress like building framed by two gorgeous  trees with their red leaves back lit by the setting sun. So many interesting things to see in one photo.

    Hm…looks intriguing…I see a new twist to photo walk planning. I will DEFINITELY be watching! I’d love to get in on this one (got an invite to join G+ when it was still invite only and didn’t accept till the day after it went public…don’t want to make the same mistake twice)!

    I had never heard of Schemer but it looks like an interesting concept.

    Fantastic photo, I love how the sunlight is flowing through the trees on the right yet the tree on the right is properly exposed, and the way the path leads your eyes up between them.

    Lovely light and colors here Trey – super!

    Cool colors! Enjoyed watching your hangout last night — I think you guys did a great job, as always of covering the topic from all angles.

    What I like about this is that it’s so much different than the usual photos that come back from the Great Wall.  Different in terms of the suffocating overgrowth on the wall… who knew it was like this?    You much have asked for some special dispensation from the usual tours that go to the wall?

    Gorgeous!

    What I like most about this shot is that despite where it was taken (from the Great Wall) it could easily have been taken just about anywhere. Look at what this photo is. A sun burst, a few colorful trees and a path with only the slightest glimpse of merlons in the background. This could be taken anywhere…here in New Jersey for that matter. The fact that it is from the Great Wall is almost incidental as Trey could have written Disney World or Detroit and we would not have known the difference. A beautiful shot of something that is omnipresent.

    So enchanting…beautiful shot!

    off yourself you cretin.

  • Todd Sipes

    Great shot as usual, Trey. Quick question. Why did you choose to leave the halo-ing around the structure?
