Photographer's Note

After great bedouin dinner in the desert camp, I woke-up at 5.45 a.m. to catch morning light over the beautiful desert of Wadi Rum.

A journey to Wadi Rum is a journey to another world. A vast, silent place, timeless and so beautiful. Wadi Rum is one of Jordan's main tourist attractions being one of the most stunning desertscapes.

Uniquely shaped massive mountains rise vertically out of the pink desert sand, which separate one dark mass from another in a desert scenery of strange breathtaking beauty, with towering cliffs of weathered stone.

Wadi Rum is probably best known because of its connection with the enigmatic British officer T.E. Lawrence, who was based here during the Great Arab Revolt of 1917-18, and as the setting for the film that carried his name "Lawrence of Arabia".
