Photo of the week: escaping this weather and heading to the desert

People disappear amongst the sandstone blocks of Wadi Rum, Jordan.

Given the weather we’re having these last few weeks, I have chosen an image that takes us back to sunny and far off shores. This is Wadi Rum in Jordan, home to Lawrence of Arabia and wandering nomads. Its a place we expected to like, but instantly fell in love with.  Free to explore the deserts, we wandered for hours on end, climbing rocks and exploring caves. This picture was taken from a natural stone bridge, looking out across the peaceful desert vista. In the centre left of the image is a lone woman, exploring the desert in her own time, just as we did. It’s a shot that takes me back to the moment – and for that reason its my photo of the week.
