13th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel
Perspective of Al Khazneh in Petra, Jordan

Perspective shot of the iconic Al Khazneh in Petra, Jordan, in an attempt to capture its massive scale. Most travelers easily recognize the beautiful facade carved out of the canyon walls that has been featured in several motion pictures (‘Indian Jones and the Last Crusade,’ ‘The Mummy Returns,’ and ‘Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen,’ just to name a few). I had the opportunity to visit this historic site during my brief stay in Jordan and it was definitely the highlight of my trip (despite the miles’ walk in the hot sun).
