Surreal sandstone

I memorably spent my 60th birthday (last year) in Petra, thereby realising a lifelong ambition. I have all the standard touristy shots to prove it, and the overall experience more than lived up to my hopes and expectations.

However, while wandering around the ruins over the two days we spent there, I was especially struck by some of the rock formations. So, rather than bore you with the usual postcard pics, here are some of the almost surreal images I saw in the sandstone.

  3. The colour of the stone looks interesting… like the waves of time, marking each decade or the journey of a man on earth, chapter by chapter… the last one is very special, it shows reincarnation of the spirit or leaving the earth moment… thanks for the photos and cheers from Ireland
