Syria





This gallery is significant to me, because it was my first on pbase!

Syria is still relatively undiscovered as a tourist destination, which makes it a fascinating place to visit. An unforgettable sight is Palmyra bathed in the morning sunlight, where the sun turns the ruins a wonderful golden colour, all the more spectacular because there is virtually no one else in sight at that hour. These photos were taken in September - October 2004.
