Ruins of a 100-years old village situated between Makkah & Riyadh (~350km from Jeddah). Built by Otaiba tribe, where they moved along time ago to a new modernized town 30km from this location. The village consist of ~20 houses, mosque & an Ottman fort. This image goes to the Mosque, showing a side from its external wall.
The whole location is almost abandoned, with no attention from the authorities to ensure preserving such a history...

A pity that the government this not protected for our children and grandchildren. .
Perspective and depth are very nice
Excellent composition, nice presentation too.
Very well done, TFS.

Well shot picture...It's the same story in my country too..Old forts, palaces, houses are not maintained in most of the places...Much importance is given to the concrete jungles now for offices and other commercial purposes...First people forget old civilizations for the present benefits...and then after thousand years later dig a hole in the earth to search the older civilzations...like they did in Mohenjo Daro..what a pity...
I have seen your other pictures too...u r a pretty good photographer...TFS..Cheers..
Thanx and Regards,

Just perfect. It only needs a few degrees of clockwise rotation.
