Photographer's Note

A general view under an afternoon light over the Judean desert, on the way back from the Mar-Saba monastery. Middle picture location is at approx. 31.71, 35.33 on the map.

Notable is the Dead-Sea on the far side, 430m+/- bellow sea-level and (vaguely shown) the rising Moab mountains ridge in the Kingdom-of-Jordan, Madaba region on the far side, 30+km away.

Closer part on the scene it is possible to see the Kidron canyon (clearly shown on middle left side) which stretches from the city of Jerusalem crossing the desert and the Mar-Saba monastery built on its sheer cliff, than carve its way towards the Dead-Sea.

RAW, F5.6, 1/800, ISO100.
