Strength in Ruins: Baalbek, Lebanon

This image captures the personality of the ancient ruins in Baalbek, Lebanon. As can be seen from the photo, the ruins represent a lot of strength and history and I wanted to get a shot that would capture the “personality” all the way through. Some parts appear to be crumbling but overall still standing strong.
