23 May Mountain Hiking
Feeling hiking with your heart, you will find people’s life is just like a hike. There is happiness, there is pain, there is persistence, there is hesitation. Life is like a landscape all the way, come face to face and then pass by with you. Use the camera in your hand, the photos on the memory card is your harvest of your life. There is no difference between walking and life, all need the heart, all need perseverance, all have the beginning and the end.
But for me, what I am infatuated with is the time I get along with myself during climbing and hiking. Only in the wilderness and in the pure nature, the magnified sound of heartbeat can be heard. The idea of being flooded with trifles on weekdays has a chance to emerge. Especially in big cities, neon lights under night combined with reinforced concrete forest of buildings, imprison the daily step-by-step life, people often lose themselves. Only go out and walk into the mountains occasionally, can you hear the real sound of your heartbeat.
Set goals – Draw up Hiking Route – select team members – Hiking Preparation – Hire Local Porter
Hiking in the mountains, first of all, you must have a definite goal. For a long time on a high mountain hike, the most important thing is make up your mind to set out.
After setting the target, you can make a line plan, query information, determine the key area of this hiking shoot and the proximate time required for this hike. If go on the way every day, it’s impossible to shoot the mountain scenery. It needs at least half a month to take a deep shoot of the mountain.
The second is to choose members to form teams or choose to join other teams. The choice of players is particularly important, be sure to make it clear whether the purpose is photography or hiking, the demand for hiking or photography by the members of these two circles is often the primary reason for the division of the team. So the choice of team members should be clear whether the other members’ purpose of travel is hiking or photography.
