Weekly Photo Challenge: The Road Taken

It doesn’t matter that you know it’s there. The first sight of the Nabatean treasury at Petra, as the long, narrow path of the Siq opens up to reveal the ‘rose red’ ruined city is almost guaranteed to take your breath away.

The WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge asks for something that conveys “the excitement, surprise, wonder, or amazement of your ‘road taken’.”

I reckon tthis qualifies:

road-taken

Another image from Petra. This time, the famous Nabataean Treasury but from a more unusual perspective (as per the suggestions in the assignment).

I also like the juxtaposition of the carved monument and the rough stone on the right: like a particularly spectacular  ‘before and after’.

I’ve posted some more abstract images from Petra here.
