'The Treasury', Jordan

'The Treasury', Jordan

At the end of the long narrow natural stone passageway known as The Siq is the fantastic ancient Nabataean city of Petra.
'The Treasury' is the first building you come across, although it was in fact a mausoleum.

Heading through the Siq (the walls of which are at points 600 feet high) and catching my first glimpse of this place ranks as a real highlight of my year in the Middle East.

This is a popular scene to photograph of course, so it's not exactly an unusual image, but it's still supercool...
please choose size...
