first view of petra.jpg

first view of petra.jpg, originally uploaded by karlakp.

The picture does not do justice to the amazing colors in the sandstone. Reds and pinks. This is the most amazing ancient site I have ever seen.

I'm floored.

  1. GAH! Wonderful! Petra is on my must-visit list, so hopefully I'll see it myself one of these days.

  2. Wow!  Would you consider putting an album up on the 'net for those of us who are too timid to travel there?  I would love, love, love to see all kinds of photos of Petra!
