While driving back on the Dead Sea highway road from the port city of Aqaba back to my home in Amman, my friend and the driver wanted to take a small break from the 3hr drive to stretch their legs. I walked out with my camera hoping to capture some scenic scenes of the Dead Sea with some mountains, however, I noticed this van parked on the cliff. I walked closer to see if there was anyone inside but there wasn’t. I immediately had the idea of framing the van in the middle of my composition to attract the viewers eye into the centre, and this is the result.
