A 4-wheel drive camp in the middle of the Wadi Rum desert close to a place where we could see strange drawing carved in the stone.
That desert can offer a nice palet of ochres from red to yellow.
Even if the 4-wheel drive is a nice way to see different spots in a short period of time, I found the camel rides far more interesting to enjoy such places. The low pace of the camel is better adapted to the rythm of the desert, of its light in my opinion.

Hi Steven. The photo is quite nice, with great color, even for the high light... but I don't like the post card style frame, i think it makes the photo look cheap, sorry.

The colours are simply... amazing!
I like this quite unusual foreground theme with nicely composed four-wheel drive site/camp that leads us to the middle of the scene and different-coloured sand underneath the rock formation.
I don't like the presentation though, but won't judge the photo by its framing!

Great shot, with beautiful, saturated colours and a nice composition. This is the location of Lawrence of Arabia (both the movie and real life!) so it's quite interesting to see what it looks like for a visit. I too would prefer it without the frame, but it's well worth 2 points. Excellent work!

Cette photo est superbe, les couleurs du sol et des massif rocheux sont superbe avec un très beau contraste avec ce ciel bleu. Comme les précédents, je ne suis pas trop fan du cadre mais l'image est là, très belle. A bientôt

Fantastic place. Super natural compo! Good colours and sharpness. 4WD cars give us the scale and impression of that hard-to-get place. Thanks for picture.
Happy New Year!
