The Majestic Matterhorn, Switzerland

This crazy idea of shooting Matterhorn during sunset is as wild as it looked! I took the Gonergrat Bahn from Zermatt to the top and walk down halfway to get this shot. Unfortunately the last train goes off just before sunset, this mean I have to walk down hill. 

And guess what, the train shoot straight up to the top took 35mins; my downhill walk in the dark? 5 hours...it totally kill my legs...but I hope this photograph will make it`s justice! 

Nikon D800 + 14-24mm

Sunset on the Jinshaling Great Wall - Travel Planning Tips & Tricks for Photographers & Explorers

Travel Planning Tips & Tricks along with some great links on the latest blog post

The Shot
The Jinshaling Great Wall was a task, why you ask? Well first of all it's nearly impossible to find a driver that will drive you all the way out there then come back a few days later and pick you up, we ended up paying double to get the guy to "promise" to return at a later day.

Our goal was to capture the Milky Way rising over the engineering marvel, this required camping, well a sleeping bag at least. The weather channel was forecasting 40 degrees Fahrenheit temps that night at the minimum. When the sun set, and the temps started dropping, and kept dropping all the way to 20 degrees Fahrenheit. Without any camping mats and only 35 degree sleeping bags, let's just say there was not much sleeping in the schedule. We did on the other hand get some nice star shots which I will share later. Here is the sunset we caught before that frigid but beautiful night on the Great Wall of China.

Let me tell you, there is nothing better than seeing the Milky Way illuminate all of the little watch towers, stretching out like a snake to near infinity over the vast landscape. I had to sit back and let my mind wander for a bit, thinking about all of the things that had gone on here over the past thousands of years. What a place...
