At the end of the trail, hike through the nature-reserve of "Rmat-Ha'Nadiv", and just a foot away from the Roman-Villa veranda's, a wide area of the coastal-plains comes into view: here is towards the NW, and in the WS attached is towards the SW.
This is the narrowest place on the coastal-plains in Israel – only less than 4 km by air to the Mediterranean-sea.

Ciao dear Ike,
fantastic bird eye view, captured with perfect clarity and great depth. Even if are only 4 km, the details of the sea coast are well defined and nicely enriching the photo. Excellent work, dear friend, congratulations!
Ciao, have a nice weekend!

The panoramic view of the coastal plains looks very beautiful and I like the inclusion of the cliffs in the foreground. The colors are very natural. The pale blue sky makes a nice contrast. The sharpness and depth are superb.

Hello Ike, Great view from the top of this mountain.t appears that some of that land could be agriculture. Is that possible? I really like the rock formations on the right side of your photo. I would assume that is some form of limestone. I have some problem finding time for photography as I play a lot of golf and spend time in our health club here. Thus I don't get out enough to take pictures. I am going to give it a go again. Regards, Roger

beautiful view with several layers of interest included. The rocky hill contrasts interestingly with the flat fields stretching behind. And there is another contrast of the two worlds: blue and green.
Very well done!

Good Morning Ike,
This shot, for me, is the better of the two for it shows the contrasts between the rocks and the grass, the heights and the low coastal plain, the fields and the wooded areas.
You have acheived a fine sense of depth, especially as the shot moves from sharp clarity into a slightly misty haze.
Have a lovely Sunday,

buona l'inquadratura dall'alto con la profondità che va dal FG con le pietre al mare sullo sfondo.
Buona la resa.

Hi Ike !1
I am getting to know quite a bit about Israel, thanks to the variety of your images.
This is a very nice panoramic view, land and sea on a sunny day.
jlbrthnn (76037) 2012-05-14 3:40
The scenery is spectacular and interesting. The high viewpoint, the foreground and sharpness, give a nice depth. Strong light is controlled. Excellent quality. Bravo.
have a nice day
josepmarin (57801) 2012-05-14 10:32
this is a composition structured well, with a few elements placed well in the framing, which we can see with a great sharpness, from the rocks in foreground up to the landscape of the coast and the sea, in a very deep image.
I like the luminosity and the smoothness of the colors, that they give a high quality to the photo.
raszid62 (18583) 2012-05-14 13:58
A great wide panorama from the high rocks on the squares of spring fields and the village and the sea beyond. Great, natural colors and perfect sharpness. However, I think it would be nice Image color a bit more saturated.
צהריים טובים. פנורמה רחבה גדולה של סלעים גבוהים על ריבועים של שדות האביב ואת הכפר מעבר לים. נהדר, צבעים טבעיים וחדות מושלמת. עם זאת, אני חושב שזה יהיה צבע תמונה יפה קצת רווי יותר. שלך.

This is the ideal location for a paragliding flight over the 4km farming plain for a safe overlook at Rmat-Ha'Nadiv and to photograph from a vantaged angle all that freshness by the sea.
delpeoples (53167) 2012-05-14 23:01
A splendid view of this landscape, the type of which I would never have guessed was in Israel. Beautiful greens and blues and the rock formations look very unusual - are they volcanic? Excellent POV and I am glad it was you walking up that hill instead of me!
Warmest regards, have a beautiful day
serp2000 (40330) 2012-05-15 10:02
I was on the MT. Carmel. I remember that short subway too )). But it was night dark time and I have not seen this beautiful view from this mount. Haifa is one the most interesting cities of Israel, I think. Thanks for memories, Ike! Good shot!
jemaflor (85394) 2012-05-15 11:57
Good pov from these cliffs, well composed with fg on the right side and the view of the horizon, nice light.
Silvio1953 (123431) 2012-05-16 5:44
Ciao Ike, great POV from Munt Carmel, fantastic landscape, excellent clarity, splendid light and wonderful natural colors, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio
Kielia (23691) 2012-05-17 4:21
you have found a very well working POV to show us this interesting landscape in a wonderful light. The season offers nice colors that make the image very attractive - and you have composed it very well. My compliments!
adramad (38509) 2012-05-18 7:44
Fabulous the perspective of this composition, great contrast between the rocky summit of the mountain in the foreground and the plains fertile fields as we see below, with the back line of the sea, is a wonderful picture, with adequate lighting and a beautiful color.
Have a nice weekend.
maria-v1981 (10814) 2012-05-18 13:44
I love that you included in the composition the rock with the rough side. It guides the eye to the vast fields of view with full symmetry. Wonderful pov and clarity.
Have a nice WE.
jmdias (56059) 2012-05-26 7:19
I imagine this high place watching the sea was very utile to the ancient people to take care about invaders. nice detail of the far landscape and the slopes in the foreground., beautiful place and nice image.
ourania (31999) 2012-08-15 6:15
your viewpoint is excellent and offers us a great and comprehensive idea about this wonderful place. There are many diverse natural elements and colours that compose the character of this environment and you have captured them with superb clarity, lovely lighting and fascinating depth. The accurate capture of natural textures and colours makes the visual impact of the foto very vivid and the perspective makes the composition quite elegant. Congratulations and thank you! The other view of the workshop is great too.
All the best, have a lovely day,
kato (11630) 2013-05-25 5:39
You're capturing well this landscape from the hill by a good angle and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the hill with rocks, coastal cultivated plain and blue/clean sea in the distance. And, it's impressive in greenery, too. Here looks like the place with rich environment.
elenimavrandoni (14249) 2013-07-06 23:10
Hello Ike, I was confused with the name Carmel..the view is fantastic, the colors very bright and the sunshine a gift to your picture!
have a great Sunday,
mcmtanyel (14117) 2015-01-15 19:43
The rocks of Mt Carmel are like a castle. Commanding bird's eye view of the coastal plain makes the viewer feel like a Roman general.
