This sunset photo was taken in the Dana Biosphere Reserve – a large nature reserve located in south-central Jordan. What made this sunset extra special is that it was quite a journey to get there. Reaching our sunset spot involved hopping in the back of pick up trucks, riding down bumpy dirt roads, and then being greeted by local children who ran alongside our vehicles waving as we drove through their little communities. When we finally reached the lookout point, the sky was starting to turn soft shades of pink and lavender, which we enjoyed with cups of sweet mint tea in hand. It was the perfect way to end the day and start an evening that would have us marvelling at the stars and enjoying traditional Bedouins cuisine with new friends.
