Amberlands: From the desert sands of Wadi Rum to ancient Kerak and Jerash
My friend John Brockliss, a fellow member of the Leica Society, is a photographer of renown and I was extremely impressed by his latest Amberlands website gallery. The pictures were taken during John’s travels across Jordan earlier this year.
John travelled “south to the Red Sea, east across the haunting desert sands of Wadi Rum, north west exploring the astonishing lost city and tombs of Petra then driving Highway 40 into the arid wastelands towards the eastern borders with Iraq/Saudi and the ancient cities of Kerak and Roman Jerash.”
John used his trusted Leica M9 for the top colour shot and the bottom Red Sea image, The black and white pictures of the carved rock and the sheep were both were taken with the Leica Monochrom Mk.II (Typ 246).
The Amberlands photographs are all available for sale as limited-edition prints. You can find the gallery and full details here.
