My 3rd post of the 1998 trip to our small "Grand-canyon" in the Negev-Desert in Israel.
Ein Avdat Canyon(view from the opposite direction), located just on side of the No.40 route due south, near Sde-Boker. See map: 30.8277,34.766.
Millions of years where water and wind carved on the desert rocks a beautiful Canyon and Oasis.
A scanned old stuff, found in my archives. Fantastic nature's.

Hello dear Ike
An oder photo, but the quality is excellent. This place looks to be the equivalent of the Grand Canyon. What a marvellous place. I like the vertical frame and the excellent sharpness. A difficult shot to take in such harsh light, but a very successful one.
Warm regards and happy Sunday

A long time ago but a very actual image with the Grand-canyons as subject.
Nice depth and excellent perspective image.
Colors and sharpness be superb
Excellent composition, nice presentation, TFS.
Have a nice Sunday,

A magnific canyon Ike, good presentation of a natural place of your country
Not sure but I think there are wild goats living there?

Wonderful shot of this canyon here. Nice areas of light and shade and the rocks provide a natural line through the scene for your eye.

The length of the canyon is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the details and colors of this area of the Grand Canyon in the Negev desert. A good management of the strong light which does not hurt to much the output of the colors. Have a nice day.

Interesting photo from your archive.
Curious place, curious view.
Good composition and frame.
I like colors.

Another proof that patience of water drops can be more powerful than compressed-air chisels to reveal the secrets of Earth with less aerial pollution and much more elegant bends!

this must be a fascinating and imposing place. I like very much your composition and the perspective and textures it highlights. The strong light has given an interesting, almost monochromatic effect. I also like the sense of depth and the well considered framing that favours your presentation very much. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great week,

Une belle image du Grand Canyon et les parois sont impressionnantes. Il vaut mieux ne pas tomber dans la crevasse. Beau format vertical et bon résultat de scan.
Toutes mes amitiés et bon début de semaine,

Nice one to bring back from the archives, doesn't look too bad for its age. Very good usage of the natural formations to create a frame within a frame. Your positioning worked well here to have that sweeping rock wall on the right lead into the image with a fun curve and strong texture from the many years of erosion, I like the layered look it has. Glad you didn't step out much further, looks like a long way down! Lovely restoration. Have a great week.
chrisvek (7001) 2013-03-03 16:53
That's a quite unsual composition but so interesting and unique.Nice lightning usage and colors.Splendid colors and great POV.Well done.
raszid62 (18515) 2013-03-04 4:21
Great, forbidding rocky canyon. The view alone can no longer assume a shiver of fear of entering there, low and did not even think. Amazing place and well presented.
הצהריים טובים. גדול, שאסר על קניון סלעי. הנוף לבד כבר לא יכול להניח צמרמורת של פחד מלהיכנס לשם, נמוך ואפילו לא חשב. מדהים מקום ומוצג היטב. .

Wonderful scenery with this rugged canyon, which has steep and high vertical walls, magnificent realization of this old photo and a perfect scan job.
Very good brightness and sharpness.
Have a good afternoon.

quelle forme cette roche et cette ouverture et quel dessin cela fait très bel ensemble et compo superbe.
Bravo et amitié

This is a very impressive canyon. I think you captured the shot while the sun was in just the right place to emphasise the textures and ridges in the rocks.Nicely composed with some sky on top and some water on the bottom, achieving balance.
Have a nice evening,
bayno (18344) 2013-03-05 7:55
Wonderful location Ike, you chose a good POV and good framing to show us in the best way..strong light well managed...you lose a little the details...

WIth regards from Luxembourg
fabbs99 (16817) 2013-03-05 11:07
Truly it looks like the Great Canyon.Excellent choice of your angle this gives perspective and depth image.Great POV and good composition.TFS.
ruisc_pt (10892) 2013-03-06 9:19
Impressive place. The well defined lines of the stratification in the rocks is awesome.
Cricri (111373) 2013-03-06 23:23
Bon choix du POV, la texture extraordinaire des roches sur le haut, moins sur le bas effacer un peu par la forte lumière, bien gérée quand même, belle retrouvailles Ike
jemaflor (89385) 2013-03-07 4:32
Impressive great canyon, well taken from this pov, good light management with these strong contrast of light.
eldancer1 (32033) 2013-03-07 9:13
Very nice capture of your "small Grand Canyon," tight spot but you did a wonderful in conveying the works of nature. Good lighting and nice details. Well done, tfs.
Gigidusud (18017) 2013-03-12 15:12
Nice capture on the canyon with great vertical format.Well done!
mkamionka (32469) 2013-03-13 13:10
what a beautiful place! I like very much deserts with unusual rock formations. I see it is an old photo but it does encourage to revisit this extraordinary place with a newer camera.
Thanks for sharing,

Bellezza naturale e foto documento .... il deserto che caratterizza la storia d'Israele. GF
mirosu (15302) 2013-04-10 21:02
I visited this hot place many, many years back. That time no digital photo technology and my scanner is not of the best quality. That why I can not compete with your excellent photo from this interesting place. Thank you for posting it.
(P.s. may be a bit more contrast and less brightness in the front would be nice.)
Royaldevon (33385) 2013-04-11 9:03
Hello My Friend,
Where will you go now you have exhausted your shots of Italy?
Well, this is a wonderful place!
It is certainly a mini Grand Canyon!
The shady side reveals the erosion of the rock layers, created as if by some ancient sculptor. The colours are just amazing; Nature at her artistic best!
Your chosen viewpoint gives immediate interest and offers an attractive lead into the canyon.
My warm regards,
kato (11630) 2013-05-28 20:48
You're capturing well this place by a good angle and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interestng and impressive to see the approach to the canyon as the cave. It seems to have passed through considerable years from the rock layer. And, it's good at light contrast, too.
jmdias (58940) 2013-06-09 9:27
nice view of this curious natural monument. I liked the framing and these details. TFS this region of Israel not so known abroad.
mcmtanyel (16625) 2013-07-02 19:52
This is another of those photos that remind me of the Wild West. For a scanned photo, this is very good.
fritzi007 (8685) 2014-08-12 14:12
interessante Naturaufnahme, gute Information, perfekt!
abmdsudi (46898) 2014-10-05 23:53
Despite its age this photo is adequately defined, a brilliant nature wonder with its amazing rock formations with just a small portion of the sky area. This looks a long way down and all perpendicular which lends the extra depth and perspective. Exposure is well managed even in darkest area and colouring is natural with lovely shadow play. A well done shot and tfs.
silah (2786) 2015-02-02 9:17
Very impressive shot was taken Ein Avdat Canyon. Even it is big canyon anyway it looks so beautiful. You have presented it very well my friend. TFS, GREETINGS, Salih.
