A hike through beautiful nature-reserve of "Rmat-Ha'Nadiv", bring you after some 3km light walk in a trail, through bush small forest, to the old ruins of what was an old mansion, from the Roman era.
The place is secluded and the remains are a history open-museum. You can see here the main living quarter of the villa.
The place located on the highest point of the southern Mt. Carmel, with a view I will show in future posts, also named "Ein-Akav", as different era's inhabitants occupied this villa. The 2 WS's show it's southern wall's.
Location: 32.5436, 34.9358
*** My next post will show a unique wine-producing system on the villa ground's.

molto composte e ordinate queste rovine con gli alberi di ulivo a fare da sfondo.
Forte luce ben gestita,

Beautiful image of these ruins where the stones are placed very diagonally. I like the symmetry here. Excellent sharpness and light management. The dull colors of the stones make a nice contrast against the blue sky and green vegetation.

l'emozione di visitare questa antica villa romana non ti ha distratto nella esecuzione di uno scatto che risulta perfetto per POV, chiarezza dei dettagli e gestione della luce.
Ottimo lavoro anche nei WS che mostrano le mura perimetrali.

I'm convinced you took this picture before visiting the wine production system; depiction is so sharp and you created from the chosen angle appealing parallel diagonals that form the historic tableau set in greenery.
Fine details everywhere as well despite backlight.

The distance between the courtyard and the riuins in the background is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the ruins. The morning light is enhancing the beauty of the colors. Have a nice day.

Hi Ike, beautiful old ruins. I could see such ruins and never become tired of them. Nice diagonal composition with excellent sharpness.

Back toward the lesson of the old roman time, almost one of the first lessons in history 55 year ago.
Also two nice WS pictures.
I wait on your next picture about production of wine.
Composition and presentation are pleasant.
Very well done, TFS.

Beautiful roman ruins
Good pov, sharpness and colors

It is not easy to make ancient ruins into fine photographs for they tend to feel incomplete and the viewers don't possess the excitement experienced by the photographer. Having said that, you have composed this really well, a strong f/g triangle begins the shot, followed by fine diagonals leading from r/l across the frame. Your details are sharp, giving good textural information.
Have a lovely day,

thank you for sharing the view of the ruins from the Roman times. This photo actually motivates me to explore my own surroundings. The Roman Empire stretched to Britain as well and not that far from where I live there is a famous Hadrian Wall or its remains. I really have to explore this place.
You have picked a nice fragment with some repeated elements creating a nice effect. The vegetation behind seems very attractive too, I would probably spend even more time over there with my camera.
The vegetation seems so different from the European one.
ourania (32909) 2012-05-08 11:31
the picture is very well captured from a great angle that presents the architecture, textures and surroundings of the villa in a very comprehensive and delightful way. The landscape, its light and colours look very familiar. You've captured the light, natural colours and contrasts superbly. The villa must have been lovely, impressive and elegant. We can learn a lot from it and dream about it. Well done and thank you!
All the best,
Janusz1974 (2824) 2012-05-08 11:48
I wonder what the place looked like back in ancient times.
You have captured the ruins very well.

Hello dear Ike
Fantastic example of Roman ruins. Despite the fact that they are one of my favourite subjects, they're beauty and magnificence are often difficult to capture. But I think you managed superbly here. Lovely warm goldn light, nice diagonal lines and excellent sharpness.
Un caro saluto

It's amazing that those stone structures have survived all those years, that says a lot for the builders of yore. Nicely captured with good details and good lighting. Wonderful colors. Well done, tfs.
josepmarin (57831) 2012-05-12 3:18
in this good framing we can see the remains of this Roman villa, in a kind of open air museum perfectly preserved. I like the nice game of light and shades on these historical stones.
The composition is attractive and the image has a good sharpness.
It’s an excellent work.

superbe photo de ces ruines sous une lumière idéale pour faire ressortir les détais de la pierre
jmdias (56667) 2012-05-23 16:08
interesting ruins. I liked the framing and pov here showing many details of architecture and the fields around. nice job.
mcmtanyel (14257) 2014-09-07 18:21
The many lines and repeating shapes as well as the play between the shadows and light render this a very interesting photo. The greenery enveloping the ruins provides a fantastic frame.
Cricri (108137) 2014-11-24 3:01
Bonne prise en diagonale des ruines, une lumière qui fait ressortir les moindres détails des vielles pierres, belles complémentaires en WS
ChrisJ (100200) 2015-03-04 11:54
Punchy light contrasts with good fg textural detail and superb sharpness. Nice repetition of the patterns and shapes formed by the ruins. The angled pov add dynamism. Good to have the horizon line well away from the dead center. The Roman villa is fascinating. Tfs.
