Where's Petra?

This on the way out of Petra in Jordan, I have a few to put up from Petra but felt this was one of the better ones.

my goodness - please share more of how you took this shot! It's so interesting.
Nigel Clack: I basically panned with the carriage but a bit quicker, and with some fill in flash too on slow sync. Thanks Jewlya

super motion in the shot. I was wondering how the wheels are quite clear and the rest is in motion, or am I just being a bit bumb? LOL
Nigel Clack: I wouldnt say bumbwink I used slow sync flash as well.

Reminds me of Eadweard Muybridge's photographic studies of a horse running. Nicely done, Nig!

I had to look at this for quite a while before I understood what I was looking at! At first I thought it was some piece of collaged artwork. A very interesting and creative shot.
