Hello Ike, Interesting shot of this canal. i see this is still in Israel. Looks fairly far out in the desert. Good looking water. I assume this is from a spring or is it coming in from the sea? Something different from you. Regards, Roger

Good choice of the vertical format for this good natural shot. The rocks give a natural framing to the small river. This incurving river invite to discovery the place.
Have a nice day,

The rock walls of the canyon are framing well the river. The point of view is allowing me to see the details and colors of the canyon. The luminosity is bringing out the colors. Have a nice day.

I always thought that Nagev it's desert. And here we have pictured a cool canyon through which flows cold water probably. This magnificent gorge. Excellent composition.
mauro61 (52855) 2010-08-12 8:07
bella e profonda questa gola in una immagine che anche se scannerizzata è molto valida.
Buona la resa delle pareti e il taglio verticale,

Good view point of river through rocks. Only saturation and details seem weak probably due to scanning losses.

There are moments in life worth remembering, and sharing ... This is one of them.
Thanks for posting ...
The landscape is really beautiful, of an untouched nature, with interesting details, like the strong color of the water, or rock formation.
(Thanks for stopping by at my pictures and hope that you continue to like my work)

This is a beautiful scanned photo. A nice canyon with the narrow stream of water. Like the color contrast between the rocks and the water. The plants growing on these rocks make them look more beautiful. Good light management too.

ein Foto aus der Negev-Desert, eine Schlucht voller Wasser, gibt es dort eine Regenzeit?
Sehr gute Arbeit, gratuliere!
ChrisJ (112259) 2015-07-31 12:03
One from your gallery. Water is life is a common theme in many arid and semi -desert regions of the world. That is amply illustrated here with the greenery hugging the moist cliffs. The turquoise color of the water is amazing. Tfs.

Hello Again, Ike,
I am trying to catch up with my replies. The water looks very inviting here. Very nice scan, TFS.
