I’ve talked about Petra in a previous Photo Blog, but this shot is certainly among my favourites. This vista, which looms out of nowhere as you walk through a tight canyon on the way from the modern town of Petra, is both iconic and awesome to behold.
One of the main reasons I love this shot though is the existence of this, second shot.
Taken moments later, in the opposite direction, I wanted to get an idea of the way from which I’d come. I think it gives an idea of how much context we can miss when we spend trips glued to the lens.
