Jordan





This were photos taken on two separate trips to Jordan, one in September 2004, and the second in February 2008. The older photos are at the bottom, taken with the Canon 300D (and the truly awful 18-55mm kit lens), and newer photos are at the top, using the Canon 40D.

Jordan is a lovely place to visit, it is rich in culture and history, and ever since Petra has been declared one of the new seven wonders of the world, tourism here has picked up in a big way. The beautiful thing about this country is that there are so many ways to explore it. whether on foot, camel riding or going round in a 4 wheel drive in the dunes of the beautiful Wadi Rum desert, horseback riding around the mountains of Petra, or just lying on your back at the surface of the Dead Sea. The country is safe, full of friendly people and is one of the places where you never quite experience the same things twice, even on a revisit.

More photos to come.

But wait! There's more! Taken in 2009:




Thanks for visiting.
