When I see ancient monuments, such as this, it makes me marvel at the dedication, strength and time that went into it's growth. It also makes me wonder how much time did "ancient" people spend doing things that were fun, enjoyable, relaxing, etc.? What marvels did THEY see? Just things that make you go "Hmm".
UFO has been here...
Stunning image. The human element, his posture of curiosity add up to a fantastic capture. Congratulations to the photographer.
Beautiful...I bet it was constructed by those UFO folks...just look at the precision of each angle...Astonishing!!!
And remember when He made you successors after Ad and settled you in the land-- you make mansions on its plains and hew out houses in the mountains-- remember therefore Allah's benefits and do not act corruptly in the land, making mischief.
These pictures are beautiful! Wish we had the ability like we used to to download a higher resolution image and use it as a desktop picture!
A magnificent structure with its design clearly picked out by the sunshine in a well composed shot that shows its size. The reddish stone is just beautiful, so too the shot. j.e.s......
Absolutely gorgeous light and subject. Wow. The pic is full of beautiful light and wonder. Thanks so much for sharing this with us. And the person surely gives us a great sense of scale. Superb.
Very cool! This inspired me to look up UNESCO sites online - here's more detail about this particular site http://whc.unesco.org/en/list/1293. Thanks again, Nat Geo!
