Photographer's Note

Close to the entrance to Petra, this Bedouin appeared to be guiding her herd of goats down the steep rock face. In the late morning sun the colours are a bit bleached out and the sky is rather dark, but I liked the contrast of her dark clothes against the sunlit rock face. I didnt quite get the shot I had hoped for as she was walking rather quickly and in addition I was supposed to be keeping up with our local guide who was keen to take us on through the site, but I thought Id post this anyway as a different view of Petra and of the daily life which continues even around the tourist areas.
