A wider view of Jerusalem from the Haas Promenade. This panoramic viewpoint offers an overwhelming sight of "Peace forest" on the foreground, the east part of Jerusalem, with the Old City and Old-Walls, including Mount Zion domes and towers, the Temple Mount, City of David, Kidron valley and Mount of Olives (on far right).
To the left, is the modern Jerusalem, first built out-of the old town walls in the mid 19th century.
The promenade is on a high point, near the UN today's headquarters, that was the residence and office of the High Commissioner during the British Mandate.
The promenade on map: 31.75457, 35.232
25˚C and light wind on a bright day, -1/3 exp. Bias, a cropped 16:9 aspect ratio.

An expansive view over the city from a well chosen vantage point. The greenery in the foreground makes a fine contrasting frame for the more urbanised areas. Fine technical realisation.

A fine panoramic shot of Jerusalem shot from a marvellous high vantage point. Wonderful contrast between the green park like fg at left and the more barren, desolate right side of the image. Good color, sharpness and saturation. Tfs!

What a beautiful view you have found, captured and presented! I like it a lot! The deep green tones of the nature in the foreground made a scene so charming and interesting. Well done!

from this angle we can't recognize the oldest alive town in the world. very nice details of this mix of green and buildings. lots of details to enjoy. a place I want to know some day.
pierrefonds (68183) 2014-07-22 18:59
I like the way the composition is divided, the sky, the city and the trees. The wideness of the area is giving depth to the scene. The point of view is showing a general view of this section of Jerusalem. The good luminosity is enhancing the beauty of the colors. Have a nice day.

This is a nice panoramic view of Jerusalem with lovely greenery in the foreground. On the horizon, I can pick out quite a few of the national bird of Israel: The crane ;-)

Hello Ike, Splendid view of Jerusalem, I wouldn't think it can looks such a modern city. Nice park or forest. "Peace forest", if only it was the truth and not only here. Spectacular wide panorama, amazing sharpness.
Have a calm day without sirens.

very interesting! I never thought that Jerusalem has so green spots. So I've again learned something new ... and realize that I should travel more.
But fortunately there is also TrekEarth for such gaps. If the necessary money for traveling is missing. :-)
A beautiful, clear picture that illuminates a bit the darkness of my lack of knowledge about places.
All the best

of course I admire the view, you are offering us a wonderful panorama with elegant layout and interesting details that make us wish to explore it in depth. Lovely, natural colours, characteristic for this region. We get the feeling that this is a prosperous and peaceful place and I wish with all my heart that it really was like that. Congratulations and thank you!I am shocked by the images of war and suffering and I only wish for Peace to finally settle in your part of world.
All the best, take care,
abmdsudi (55706) 2014-07-23 9:34
An elevated view point showing the skyline of the historic city brightly exposed and pleasant clarity with enough interest around. Clusters of white buildings on the slopes grab our attention firmly as strong colour breaker creating a point of focus bounded by rich colours. Lovely to view on how the abundant of lively green lungs have actually soothed and balanced the whole image superbly. I think you nailed the shot delightfully, Congrats.

A fine high Point of View from above. The sharpness and depth have been regulated beautifully, every detail accounted for. The colours are natural and well-contrasted. Excellent wide-angle shot of this famous city.

adramad (47022) 2014-07-24 8:53
Awesome this great panorama of the city, we see as extending along the slopes of the hills, lovely contrast all this wooded area that we see in the foreground.
Very good color, which gives much strength to the image.
Great management of brightness, sharpness is also perfect for enjoying the details.
Very well seen and well taken.
Have a nice day.

Today I shall be very brief, as my move is imminent.
The photo is the way I visualize. Everyone has their way of seeing and each photo shows the personal signature of the photographer.
Best rgds, Wolfgang.

Somehow this one slipped past me, which is a pity that I missed it until now!? What a wonderful, wide open view over the landscape, and a even greater idea of its sprawl. Neat to see from this perspective how the foreground slowly incorporates itself into the city spanning the horizon. The Peace Forest is greatly needed right now, and this view surely conveys a calming sentiment, if only for a brief moment in picture. And of course, the bounty of green and blue coloring is always a pleasing combination. :) Enjoy the new day. Take good care.
