Petra, Jordan by Jonathan Reid

Petra, Jordan

Whilst exploring Petra, I considered that the site might be isolated enough to be able to see the stars at night. The national park requires that visitors leave the park at sunset, but I spoke to the gaurds who allowed me to stay in the park to do the night tour. For a few minutes, I had the sight to myself, to see the Treasury lit up by candles under a blanket of stars.
