Exercise does not have to be dull. You can pursue many activities to get your body moving and in shape. One activity I particularly enjoy is hiking in nature to capture photos of wildlife and landscapes. It’s common to walk 3 – 5 miles without even knowing it. I also hiked up Elephant Mountain in Taipei, Taiwan to get a shot of Taipei 101. It was a tremendous workout.
One of my dreams was to publish a photograph in National Geographic. To do this, I had to re-learn photography — and loved it. Having a goal kept me hiking in nature often. These are the steps I took to achieve my goal of publishing a photograph in National Geographic’s highly popular “YourShot” publication. This article was published by Better Humans on Medium.
