Great shot! the lighting captures good details and the color is very good. Its hard to believe that people carved out those rocks with only limited tools yet such intricacy.

Sharp and intriguing.

Is it its natural color or has this shot been taken by the sunset ?

Question : I think I've already seen this place. Was it in the final sequence of Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade ?

Thank you dear members for your comments. I certainly recommend a visit.Petra is an unforgettable experirnce. The ancient city is spread outover several sq. miles.

Carving with such an intricacy is an art by itself and an achievement, especially with the simple tools availableat that time.

The color is natural. Petra is called "The Rose Red City". Part of Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade was shot in Petra.

What a stunning photo and place. I would love to see this live but I suspect the photo will have to do. Simply gorgeous......

I was there last year and took some photos of the Treasury and other monuments on the mount with my Coolpix 885 (now dead). I've just purchased a Canon G5 and wish I'd had this at the time.

Jordan's an amazing place and I just love Amman with Jerash to the North (Heavy Roman influence)

Perhaps I should upload some pictures?
