A scanned print from a trip to the Negev-Desert from 1998. An overview of the hidden canyon, stretch for some 3km.
This POV taken directly above the southern wall which was shown in a view from down in the canyon, posted previously .
The area on the hills are an arid soil, as desert is - while the creek down bellow have an abundance of water, and green vegetation.
See map of it's location on road from Beer-Sheva to Mitzpe-Ramon.

In this plane than on the open instead of hanging up the picture you can see the big picture on this canyon.
A wild place and shows the greatness of nature, good management of light and soft colors very attractive.
Good work of Scan.

Your Grand Canyon is maybe small but still very interesting and beautiful. The walls look impressive. Spectacular view. i had no idea there are canyons in Israel.

Hello Ike, Another good scan. What are you using. I have an EPSON 4990 which is several years old and I am reasonably satisfied with it. This is a good shot of the canyon walls and provides some good depth as well. Apparently this water flows all year or not? We have lots of brooks and rivers in the winter time, but by May, they are gone. Never realized that you had terrain like this in Israel. Well Done. Regards, Roger
So you have a small canyon here too.

בוקר טוב. הקניון המפואר. הנהר זורם הברקת מוקף סלעים יפה אבל מסוכן. מדהים המקום. בברכה
A magnificent gorge. The river flows emerald surrounded by dangerous, but beautiful rocks. Amazing place ..

Hello my dear Ike
What an another wonderful secnery shot.
Well considered framework and perfect organized composition you got as usual. Marvelous pan-focus shot, so deep and sharp focus zone, moderate color touch is outstanding. Blessing on your masterpiece, thanks for sharing and have a good weekend! Best regards, Takero

I didn't know you had such deep canyons in Isreal. Good quality scan and nice POV.

The point of view is sending my eyes toward the end of the canyon which is giving depth to the composition. It is also allowing me to see the details and colors of the canyon. There is a good contrast between the colors of the water and the colors of the walls of the canyon. Have a nice day.

Very interesting view of this canyon.A wonder of nature.
I'd like to see it personal some time.

jmdias (54533) 2010-08-16 15:45

interesting composition, reminds me american western *Makkena's gold* from the childhood. Nice color combination light-brown sand rocks and deep-green vegetation, also a pleasant curve of the canyon itself.

Impressive landscape. But I have never been in this part of the land. One my old friend lives in Beer Sheva. Oh, this is the same famous Negev. I remember this desert from the newspapers.
Miguel82 (22861) 2013-04-24 13:23
A superb canyon in the desert Ike, the river is dry but there is water in the bed that allows trees to grow
Nice place to visit
Excellent sharpness,superb colors and contrast
Have a good evening

A very nice place located in Israel! Its like a little Grand Canyon! I hope one day I can travel there!
NorthernLight (2193) 2013-12-02 8:20
very impressive this landscape. The Grand Canyon I know unfortunately only from pictures, but in Texas I once saw something like that. In this canyon are probably snakes. I hate snakes. ;-)
Nevertheless, this is a nicely captured image of a very interesting area!
All the best

Good scan of this old photo with excellent sharpness & superb shadow detail in the valley at right. I like the c shaped curve of the gorge. The greenery at the bottom reminds me of Morocco where life clings to the river valleys and beyond is arid and desolate. Tfs!
