  1. Hi,

    Concerning flight APAAME 20160526 - East into the Badia - you can find some pictures from Qasr Aseikhim I took in October 2013 at this link

    The qsar was already bulldozed at this time.

  2. Thanks for letting us know about your photographs. We have flown the site several times over the last twenty years - you can see the progression of damage in the photographs in our Flickr catalogue if you search for all of the photos of the site.

  3. Hello,

    Is it possible to purchase high-resolution formats of the images, intended for printing without the APAAME watermark?

    As a Jordanian expat who is a huge fan of your aerial imagery, I would love to be able to hang some of your outstanding work at my house.

    1. Dear Qaisar R.,

    1. Steve,

  5. I have been investigating these stone structures for a year now and have found them and other similar anomalies in other countries, namely the Baluchistan region of Pakistan. I would love to share my findings. Please let me know how best i would go about doing that?
