A one day scape to Damascus from Amman in Jordan was an exciting immersion in this ancient city and the Islamic world.

De esta foto me sorprende la composición del minarete con ese vuelo tan espectacular y por otro lado, la figura casi escultórica que ha salido del perfil humano. Realmente no difiere mucho de las estatuas de cualquier paseo europeo.

Hola Jacobo.

Bonita foto, la tunica negra sobre fondo claro queda barbaro.

Bo Nadal.

great capture with great clarity and detail. the flying bird on the top of the frame and teh detail of the reflection on the courtyard are well captured.

Great composition here, thank you for sharing this very nice image.

Like the reflection with the perspective...

Very nice picture, hope to vist this country one day, Thanks for sharing.
