I took a trip to Jordan at the end of 2019, a much needed holiday after a busy year and most importantly a big change in culture, weather, light, colours and textures. I took my trusty Canon G7x which I've grown to love using. It has full manual controls and shoots RAW, giving me high-quality files to work with when I get back home. It's also compact and light, perfect for travel and makes a change from lugging a heavy, conspicuous DSLR around.
Here's a handful of snaps from the trip, focussing on the amazing colours and textures I found along the way, mostly in the city of Madaba which is just south of the capital Amman.
