Caves & burial area, found and situated in the northern part of Palmachim Beach, carved into the cliff. This was the old "Yavne-Yam", which served as a small port from the Bronze Age (mid-second millennium BC) till the Middle Ages.
Location of the beach, some 15km by-air-distance south of Tel-Aviv: 31.96, 34.716 .
Tel-Aviv skyscrapers can be seen through the mist, on far left on the image, along with town's of Bat-Yam, a few km closer.
16:9 aspect ratio.
*** As Murat (TE:mcmtanyel) wrote in his critique, there is an imginary head-shaped rock on right side cliff, did not noticed before. Cheers, Murat.

This is very long time ago the Bronze Age, but it's always pleasant is to know about the long time ago.
Excellent composition with the rocks to the rightside, and the sky scraper over the sea to the horizon.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice Sunday,

Good morning Ike,
Palmachin beach looks as i see with a rocky one with the caves and the burials to are covered the area during the ancient era.A lot of the ancients constructions must be sink in the sea,as in many areas in Hellas.
The view of the Tel-Aviv skyscrapers can been seen on the backdrop through the misty atmosphere.

The distance between the beach and the city is giving drpth to the composition. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the ebach and of the cliff. The morning light is making the colors to stand out. Have a nice day.

indeed looks like. Beautiful composition of nature and nicely framed this ancient port. Very well done with blue sky, natural colors, sharpness, super clarity, fantastic POV and DOF as well. I love the cropping of this picturesque photo. Excellent work. Thanks for sharing.
All the best and have a nice WE.

I like the way you have divided the image into 3 parts ashowing the beach, water and sky. Nice misty view of the skyscrapers in the background. Like the rocky hill on the right to get a better view. The colors are very natural with sharpness and depth.

Very interesting photograph of this burial area which seems quiet and calm compared to Tel-Aviv with its skyscrapers in the mist.
All the best

sabbia grigia che con la sua colorazione apre la scena e sullo sfondo tra la foschia si scorge la città.
In mezzo un bel mare azzurro,

a very well composed impression of this interesting place, accompanied by a nice note. You made me curious to learn more about Palmachim port. The colors and the light are very moody. My compliments!

Hello dear Ike
An intriguing place, and a good photo to demonstrate it to us. I like the colours and the slight haze from the water. Excellent shot dear friend, have a lovely Sunday.

A fabulous composition, this corner of the coast with this area of rocks is beautiful, the great city that is shaping up slightly in the mist gives great DOF to the composition.
Superb sharpness with good brightness.
Good start of week.
Royaldevon (32649) 2012-04-29 14:47
A place I have never heard about previously but one that I will investigate. As always, you have a good sense of composition with 3 horizontal layers of markedly different textures, which guide into the b/g like steps. There are sharp texured details in the f/g and an inferred movement from the breaking waves.
My warm regards,
bayno (18344) 2012-04-29 22:15
the scene is perfectly framed and with a great depth, despite the haze one can see clearly the skyscrapers of Tel-Aviv, very beautiful colors and light and interesting historic site...

When History meets the sea it creates a "chapel" that prompts meditation about the forgotten ancestors!

your photo reminds me my visit to Ceasarea. Similar ancient ruins of the Roman ruins. And I have seen similar view in Turkey now. An interesting and useful note. TFS!
jmdias (58171) 2012-05-18 7:41
