Escarpment in Evening

As you keep heading east from Jeddah, the landscape changes from the dunes of the painting below, to a high escarpment that marks the plateau upon which Riyadh is located. After 8 hours of driving we reached the tall cliffs at the perfect time, just as the evening light was painting them golden. Even if it had been the only scene worth seeing on the entire trip (and it wasn't) this would have been worth it.
