Two camels in front of the Kezneh are waiting for the tourists to come. This is a Nabatean tomb, probably the most famous buiding of Petra since it is in a very good shape after 20 centuries and also because it's located just at the first spot when exiting the Siqh, the narrow valley leading to this magical area.
Just behind the camels, one can notice underground works. Some archeologists were digging stairs below the "Treasury" and we could see there were a door leading to a new hidden level. Well, the tombs are spread on a 100kmē area... I guess it's only the beginning of amazing discoveries..

I like how you put the camels and people in a corner position giving a scale and a organic presence while the facade hovers over them. Good work on the perspective.

Excellent composition, wonderful colours, Steven, the temple is imposing from this angle, with the camels almost dwarfed by it

excellent point of view, great composition with the camels in the foreground and excellent colours. Very good sharpness as well.

superbe image, on se rend compte de la hauteur du monument par la taille des chameaux, belles couleurs mais pas assez de contrastes ā mon avis
