Photo Of The Day – Petra At Night

Description: Petra at night is a special time to visit the ancient ruin. The temperatures are cooler, the entire 1km walk to the Treasury is illuminated by candles (as seen here) and special music is played while in reverence of the skill it took to create this wonder of the world. Oh! And tea. You get tea too.

Curious how to take better photos with that decent camera you have? I teach workshops and lead international photo tours.

    Wow, this is truly an incredible shot from Petra at night. I’ve been there and this still blows me away. I am so glad that you and Sabrina had a chance to experience this (the tea is great, isn’t it??).
