I like this, it looks very much like rock formations I have seen in Arizona and Utah in the south west of the States. Very interesting formations.
Perhaps a little over exposed?

Shalom Gerard,

Lovely forms and colors. While it is so close to here, I haven't been there.

Have a nice weekend,


Hello Gerard,

so this is aone beautiful picture with great details.
Fine colours.


Hy Gerard
Impressive landscape. I like the arch, in fact years of errosion, revealing wanderful shapes.

Luz casi al límite Gerard, pero bien captada la idea, con un buen encuadre que permite observar perfectamente esas rocas erosionadas.

Bonjour Gérard,
Une image très impressionnnante de ce paysage désertique du sud de la Jordanie. Etonnant arc formé par l'érosion. Je ne savais pas que cette région est formée la plus ancienne strate géologique de l'écorce terrestre.
Posting très bien présenté et informatif.
Un grand merci
