I guided a group today on my Herod the Great Tour visiting Herodium and then the monumental Herod exhibit at the Israel museum. This photo is one I took from the top of the man-made mountain at Herodium looking east towards Jordan. It’s quite amazing that on a clear day you can see as far as the Dead Sea and the mountains of Moab.
The technical details – the photo was taken with a Nikon DSLR camera on November 2 (ISO 200, 70mm, F10 at 1/400 sec).

I imagine that when Herod chose the site, he would have WANTED to see out as far as he could . . . Scenery and Security.
