the rose city • petra, jordan

Petra is one of the most incredible places I've ever visited. The space is incredible not only for it's endless supply of impressive, jaw-dropping buildings carved by hand into the soft sandstone rock; or its role as former Hollywood movie set locale for Indiana Jones and the Last Crusades; but for the fact that this city in the middle of nowhere was once inhabited by 30,000+ people and built in the 6th century B.C.! While it would have been ideal to photograph the ever-changing colors of the rock at sunrise or sunset, I still was able to capture a decent array of colors.
