Petra Horseman by Mark Higgins

Canvas Prints

A horseman riding through the siq toward the imposing Treasury in the Nabatean ruins of Petra in Jordan.
A classic and timeless location but made unique by the appearance of the horseman in the shaft of light. (These guys ferry tourists who don’t want to walk through the siq)
The lost city was rediscovered in the mid 1800’s.
I only spent a couple of days here but the enormity of the location is astounding. There is so much archeological work to be done here – and so much still to be found – it will be a never ending quest.

I look for design in everyday situations, Industrial grunge, typography, quirky landscapes, colour, form and anything with a design aesthetic that catches my eye. I completed a Diploma of Graphic Design and have continually worked in this field. I prefer to compose and design in-camera – my graphic design training taking over:) I return to fertile ground once in a while trying to improve previous pictures.
