[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is a shot taken at Masada. Masada has become one of the Jewish people's greatest symbols as the place where the last Jewish stronghold against Roman invasion stood.More than two thousand years have passed since the fall of the Masada fortress yet the regional climate and its remoteness have helped to preserve the remains of its extraordinary story.
Masada is located atop an isolated rock cliff at the western end of the Judean Desert overlooking the Dead Sea. On the east side, the rock falls in a sheer drop of about 450 meters to the Dead Sea and on the western edge it stands about 100 meters above the surrounding terrain. The natural approaches to the cliff top are very difficult.
It is possible to walk up to the top. A few people climb down but most people use the cable car up and down. The cable car holds about 80 people.

Hello David

So you are standing on Masada looking down. If so, I hope you are going to post images of this place itself. So far we are taking a great tour of Israel through your eyes. Israel must be like the Mecca for Christians. many thanks for the great images coming from you. A different look for sure.


Hello David, the high PoV is very effective; I can just make out a person walking on the track, which really does emphasise the scale!
You obviously gained a lot from your trip.
Tfs, regards Jean.

Hi David
This composition of yours really show the picture as least affected by the passing of time. Like the view from the top. Interesting note too. Tfs.

Bom dia David,
Is the past that resurfaces and this photo is a superb documentary by fidelity and also by artistic sense that it contains.
