The excitement of my first glimpse of the Treasury (Al Khaznak) as I came to the end of the al-Siq at Petra, Jordan. This amazing structure was carved from the solid rock face during the first century AD.

I like this very much. Natural architecture in the massive rock framing manmade architecture carved in that rock. Nominated.
