Petra – inside the incredible cave dwellings – photos

We clambered up the cliffs to get into the caves.  Some of them seemed to have been hollowed out, or extended, by the Nabateans. Others seemed natural. Many had signs of previous habitation – smoke blacked ceilings.

I was in my element with the camera,

The fabulous colours, striations and organic shapes of the eroded sandstone were spectacular. I think I liked them better than the Treasury.

The openings reminded me of Gaudi’s windows in his houses in Barcelona.

It was amazing to stand in the entrance to the caves and peer across the valley. A beautiful sight.

Everywhere were extraordinary colours, shapes and structures. It’s like the world was on acid.

I had to be prised away. I might have spent all day clambering around shouting out – ‘WOW!!’
