Photographer's Note

Remnants of the eastern-wall of the ancient Ashkelon, built in the mid-12th century by the Fatimid Caliphate. The wall was originally 2,200 meters in length, surrounding the town from north, east and south, 50 meters in width and 15 meters in height. From atop of the dike, there is a whole view of the nowadays Ashkelon National-Park, as on this previously posted picture.

Located in the south Israel coastal plains, 31.6627, 34.5478 on the map.
A 16:9 aspect ratio. A WS with an opposite view.
