Rescanned, less sharpness, colour corrected
This view of Djibla was taken as one approaches the town from Ibb.
Djibla was founded by the King Ali Bin Mohammad Al Sullaihi. It was the capital of Sulaihide Dynasty which ruled Yemen as from 1047 till 1138 AD.Djiblah used to be called "the two river city" as it is on a hilltop between two flowing perennial rivers.

Another great old one from Yemen - it may not be as peaceful there now as it looks in this photo.

Cities and buildings as I would like to visite in Yemen, that looks as a movie set. Your composition is really wonderful with a good choice of POV and this large format. Adding excellent light and sharpness, great shot

This one is even better as it has a great composition with lots of depth thanks to the white house on the right and the gentle diagonals stretching into the distance. Excellent clarity. Regards. Klaudio.
