Photographer's Note

The Temple of Bel is one of the most in tact remnants of the ancient city of Palmyra, one of the Middle East's premier classical sights and tourist attractions.

The temple was first dedicated in AD45 and rebuilt by Agrippa about a century later. In the 5th century it became a church and was fortified in the 12th century for use as an Arab fortress.

The colours in this photo may seem a bit surreal, however that is due to a combination of it being taken in the middle of a sandstorm and also the setting sun.
