Photo of the Week – Bet Shean

For the last 12 weeks I’ve posted photos of Israel landscapes, today’s post is a photo of an archaeological site in the north of Israel. You can click on the image for a larger view (which may take some time to load depending on your Internet connection).

The photo was taken at Bet Shean in the archaeological park and shows the destruction of the city by the earthquake of 749CE. The technical details – the photo was taken with a Nikon digital point and shoot camera on January 2 (ISO 100, 8mm, F7.6 at 1/135 sec).

Bet Shean is a great site to visit, see my post at
