Photo of the Week – Nahal Zin

Nahal Zin is in the Negev near Sde Boker and meanders along so that you cross it a number of times along highway 40. I was with clients on the way to Eilat and Petra, Jordan, the Nabatean capital, and we stopped for the night at one of the family farms, Carmey Avdat, that has planted a vineyard on terracing that was prepared by the Nabateans some 2000 years ago. In the morning we went to visit the nearby Nabatean city of Avdat and the makhtesh along the legendary Spice Route that led from Yemen across the Negev to the port at Gaza.

This photograph was taken from the lookout above En Avdat a couple of weeks ago on that trip. I think the hills look like the meringue on the top of one of my son Amitai’s lemon pies.


The technical details – the photo above was taken with a Nikon 5300 digital SLR camera in October 2016 (ISO 320, 32mm, F11 at 1/500 sec).
