Petra Treasury #1

By andy210966
Hello All!!

I am back from my flying visit to a few places in the Middle East - here is the first offering.

This is the ancient treasury at Petra in Jordan - hewn out of the sandstone rock face. A truely fabulous and astonishing place - definately going back.

Many thanks for viewing and for the comments and critiques on my previous uploads Smile

Andy

You're a lucky man to have seen this with your own eyes, a fabuous place, with such wonderful light, a dream of many phorographers to get here. I'll be looking for more from this location. I seem to recall a huge doorway set in the wall.
