My wife and I just finished coming back from a trip to Israel. While in Eilat, we took a day trip into Jordan to visit Petra. It was a childhood dream of mine to visit this place after watching Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade. And, boy was my dream finally lived out. What an AMAZING place this was.

So, about this photo ... that little boy in the shot was actual there trying to sell a flip-book of postcards. Lucky my wife and I went there on a day when there really weren't that many people which then allowed me to take this magical shot without anyone really there. Thankfully the sun came out at the right time because earlier in the day it was a bit overcast. Oh, this is an original shot. No HDR here.

I hope you enjoy this shot as much as it was for me to be there to take it.

I appreciate your comments in advance.
