In the artist’s own words: “On our car trip to Syria in 2009, my father suggested visiting Petra because it is in our way. We were very excited to visit that location to see (The Treasury) where did they film the movie "Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade". We didn't know that it was a long walk to reach that place, but it was worth it. Walking between the mountains with the rose and orange color was magnificent, the light and shadows gave the place a more enjoyable scene for the eyes. While walking I noticed that my father and mother walking towards the light. This photo is very meaningful to me because of the colors, the details, and the composition."
