The Great Stone Snake
I snapped photos with every step that I took climbing the Simatai section of the Great Wall. I would preview each photo after I taking it and none captured the sight before me - a seemingly endless stretch of stone that undulated with the landscape of the mountains that it was snaking over. I kept climbing til the path was blocked and I could go no more. I turned around and took one last photo. It's not the perfect image but it's the one that captured the memory I wanted to preserve of this amazing experience I had.
