Derawar Fort infrared

Derawar is a square fort with a 1.5km (0.93 mile) circumference and foundations dating back to the 12th century AD. Its 30 meter high walls can be seen from far in the surrounding Cholistan Desert.

The harsh desert sun in the later part of the day didn’t make for great traditional photography conditions. However, it is excellent for capturing infrared images. Such as this one of an ancient domed ruin and the fort in the background:

This area was once the riverbed of the dried up Ghaggar-Hakra river system. It now only flows during the monsoon floods.
