Photo of the Week – Samaria

This week rather than driving up the Jordan valley on highway 90 I drove the Allon Road, an 87km long and winding road on my way to Bet Shean. This is the name given by Israel to routes 458, 508, and 578 in the West Bank, running roughly south-north along the eastern watershed of the Samarian and Judean mountains (I can also take you to Samaria-Sebaste). This is a view of the mountains along the route at sunrise.


The technical details – the photo above was taken with a Nikon 5300 digital SLR camera in October (ISO 400, 105mm, F10 at 1/250 sec).

    Hard to believe that it’s a year ago since we were on tour with you. One of the absolutely best experiences of my life. The time we shared with my mom and dad visiting the great historical sites of Israel and Jordan with your guidance and friendship will remain with me forever. Thank you.

      Thanks for taking the time to write Susan. You’re very welcome, it was a great tour.
      Was actually thinking of you guys because I was just in Jordan two weeks ago, I’ve posted some photos on my FB page.
