Photographer's Note

Wadi Rum is a protected area covering 720 square kilometers of dramatic desert wilderness in the south of Jordan. Huge mountains of sandstone and granite emerge, sheer-sided, from wide sandy valleys to reach heights of 1700 meters and more. Narrow canyons and fissures cut deep into the mountains and many conceal ancient rock drawings etched by the peoples of the desert over millennia. Bedouin tribes still live among the mountains of Rum and their large goat-hair tents are a special feature of the landscape.

Distance between my last shot and Wadi Rhum is about 6054km. The line between all my pictures I had posted here on TE is now 1.664.325km long (calculated on a perfect world ball).

Time to say good-bye for the next weeks to continue the exploration of the interesting corners of the earth. Happy Christmas to all TE members! I wish you all a Happy New Year 2008. Thank you all for your critiques throughout the year which help me to improve my photography on this tour.
