Thank you, Kimi. Jaisalmer is remote but well worth the effort of getting there.

Oh...My...Word! First of all, love your deep blue sky, secondly, this desert scene is spectacular! The 'city'looks so 'intimadating' even from a distance! National Geographic would be so proud.... :) #4569677

Steve M. Harrington 7/27/2007 6:16:13 PM

Thanks so much, Dianna. The city is not at all intimidating. It is filled with incredible buildings that seem lace-like in their detailed carvings, and the people are friendly. One problem: this shot was taken in May when temperatures regularly hit 115 degrees. :)

What a beautiful capture!! #4569800

Dianna Hauf 7/27/2007 7:21:15 PM

Ok, "intimidating", bad choice of wording. It is just sooooo huge, maybe 'fortress' or 'citadel'...since you teach 'communications', help me!!! I am at a loss for the right word description! I must be extra tired tonight as I 'babble'! No matter, it is a striking image! :):) #4569893

Steve M. Harrington 7/27/2007 7:30:50 PM

Thanks very much, Colette.

Dianna, if you are planning on attacking it, "intimidating" would be an excellent word. If you are visiting, then "magical" is a good choice. :)

The light here is striking, illuminating the structures so warmly. It's easy to see why this was chosen as a defensive position. I find myself wondering, though, how they got (and get)their water. #4574557

Steve M. Harrington 7/29/2007 9:13:18 AM

Hey, Mitch! The only source of water is wells that are at least 250ft. deep.
