Photographer's Note

Azraq Castle was built in 13th century. It is built completely of basaltstone. It is situated in the Northern Azraq Oasis in the Syrian Desert. Once the whole surroundings were wetlands, but then the water was brought to the capital Amman as potable water and the oasis ran dry.
