Photographer's Note

A kilometre deep, 4km wide and stretching a distance of over 70km from the desert highway to the Dead Sea is the Wadi Mujib Valley. According to the guide books it is often known as “the Grand Canyon of Jordan”. Historically it is significant as marking the border between the Amorites (to the north) and the Moabites (to the south), as mentioned in the Bible. Moses is also believed to have walked along the Wadi Mujib valley.

The road which snakes over the landscape is the King’s Highway, one of Jordan’s three highways connecting the north and south.

This is a stitch from two shots, assembled using Autostitch (thanks Bibi for introducing me to this software!). I’ll post a large version which you can view by clicking on the image.
