Al-Khasneh by ruthsantcortis Al-Khasneh by ruthsantcortis
The name Al-Khasneh meaning “The Treasury” derives from the presence of an urn at the top of the monument which the inhabitants of the area during the 19th century claimed had contained the treasure of the Pharaoh at the times of the Exodus

I've seen this place in so many movies. It'd be cool to actually come there though.

P.S. I'm sure you know of it, but I have found for some shots with high verticals and difficult perspectives that the Photoshop filter 'PT Lens' can be useful. Love all your work and thanks for sharing!

The treasure is inside the wall on the left.. it's actually a humanoid-robot holding a bag of gold..

All jokes aside, awesome photo! Added to favs!
