Photographer's Note

We took a taxi to reach the Wadi Rum desert around 9:30 AM with an American girl who had been spending few weeks travelling in the different countries around Jordan.

Then, we hired a guide for a 4-wheel-drive tour in the desert to discover the most remarkable part of the desert, especially "Rock bridge", writings carved on cliffs and a house were "Laurence of Arabia" used to live.

Surprisingly, the most interesting part of the day to me was when our guide left us alone to the tent were we would spend the night my wife and I. I could have a walk alone on the dunes around and we had the silent space of the desert for us. A great moment to refuel one cells :)

But before that, we did see many places of interest in the Wadi desert like this little Rock bridge called Um Fruth. This one is something like 20 or 25m high and require some skills to reach top. Another one called Burdah Rock bridge is located at a 20 minutes drive for here but I believe this is a insane one :) I understood it was 1560m high !!! We saw it from very far some time later.

The following morning, after few sunrise pictures and few shots from the activity around us, we left the Wadi Rum by bus for Aqaba where we rented a car.

Saturation, contrast and levels adjusted. USM applied.
