Petra Revisited

IMG_3994

The colors in Petra are amazing – almost unreal. If you saw something like this in a theme park, you would probably criticize it for looking so fake. But this is very real.

At first glace these bands look like layers of sediment, but that is only an illusion. In fact, it came from mineral rich water seeping into the sandstone. The effect is a little like water stains on a book or a ceiling. Kind of cool when you think about it that way.
