An Exploration of Jordan's Landscape and Monuments

I have always been in love with Ancient places, be it Petra, Egypt, Rome or Greece. When I got the chance to travel to Jordon and visit Petra and Wadi Rum I was very excited! To make it even better I had the new Sony 12-24mm F/4 G Ultra-Wide-Angle lens to use during my journey.

After a lot of planning and pre-trip preparation to find out the best times of day and locations to get the shots I wanted, I was ready to set off.There was going to be a lot of hiking during the trip so I made sure I was travelling light!

The all-new Sony 12-24mm F/4 G Lens really helped with that - It allows for a unique point of view, without distortion like a fish-eye lens might have. The lens features four aspherical elements which gives corner to corner sharpness. Because it has three ED Glass Elements, with one Super ED Glass Element it has very little chromatic aberration. The lens is Nano Coated too. All of this fancy stuff, while being so small and light is a serious plus for a landscape photographer like me!

To get the Milky Way shots I had to have my camera set up at awkward angles, and also attempt to focus in very low light - this is where the combination of the A7RII's focus peaking and the 12-24mm's nice, big focus ring really helps.

I wasn't in Jordan for long, and I visited lots of locations, but I'm very happy with the results - I can't wait to go back!

Please enjoy the images I made below.

**I've included before and after examples of the images I shot during my visit to Jordan so you can see the progression from RAW image (often a panorama) to final edited version.
