Lens-Artists Challenge #163 — Keep Walking

This week, our theme is “Keep Walking”. Let’s share our walking and/or hiking experience.

If you want to walk fast, walk alone. But if you want to walk far, walk together.

— Ratan Tata

“It’s your road, and yours alone. Others may walk it with you, but no one can walk it for you.”


The photo below was taken in one of the areas in Peru. An 82-year-old man walked up to the top of the hill slowly with some help.

Among all the hiking we have done, the 999 steps in Nafplio, Greece was one of the challenging experiences. But, the views all the way to the top were simply stunning.

Once upon a time… We started our walking/hiking from Monterosso al Mare, to Vernazza, Corniglia, Manarola, and ended at Riomaggiore. It was about 7 miles (11 kilometers) long; between the highest and lowest points of the trail the elevation was 1640 ft. It took us over 5 hours to get to Riomaggiore. It was an enjoyable hiking experience, so we went back again a year later.

These days, I enjoy my morning walk in the woods. I’m constantly amazed by the light and discoveries as I walk along the trail.

Many thanks to Tina’s “It’s all about the light” last week. She gave a series of comparisons about the power of light. Through your beautiful images, I’ve learned many ways to capture fascinating light in photos. Thank you for participating.

This week, we invite you to share your walking discoveries and photos on trails, streets, gardens, neighborhoods… Remember to link your post to my original, and to use the Lens-Artists Tag to help us find you.

We’re excited to announce that LAPC #164 will be hosted by Sofia Alves on September 4th. Her theme is “Looking Up/Down”. Be sure to visit Sofia’s site.
