This photograph of the ancient Semitic city of Palmyra was taken before the devastating civil war in Syria began. I recall sitting atop a mountain at sunset, looking down and thinking this has to be one of the most incredible places I have ever seen. It beggars belief why anyone would want to destroy such an incredible site.
