WPC: State of Mind: Contemplative

Sunset at Wadi Rum, Jordan

This week’s WPC asks us to post a photo that reflects our frame of mind at the moment we took the photograph. I immediately thought of this photograph I took close to sunset at Wadi Rum. It was the perfect moment for contemplation. Apart from about 8-10 of us in the vicinity there was not a single soul in that section of the desert. The fiesty colour of the desert and the silence made it a perfect opportunity for contemplation.

      It is! In fact this was used as a location for shooting ‘The Martian’. It seems apt

    Indeed you can meditate sitting there in a tent!

      You don’t need a tent. Just sit under the stars- in pleasant weather of course!
