dead sea acacia

with masada climbed, the sunrise captured and the descent completed by the late morning, we continued northbound to reach home base in north tel aviv. we opted to take the 90 northbound, so that effectively we had made a circuitous route from home base and back within the span of about a week or so.

the dead sea is not as i had remembered it from a visit some 23 years prior. the shoreline was virtually inaccessible this time around. i had hoped to get close to the water as we had on that previous trip, alas it was not meant to be… i believe the statistics say that the dead sea has lost approximately 1/6 of its surface area in the past 20 or so years.

nevertheless, there were a few stops for photo ops made on our return trip from southern israel: this is a photo of an acacia tree along the ‘shores’ of the dead sea somewhere between ein gedi and mitzpe shalem along the 90.

desert acacia of the mountains

for those of you familiar with my earlier work, you will notice that the photographs that i captured in israel have been presented in colour. it became rather evident that israel is an incredibly special place. i was taken by the wonderful scenery afforded almost everywhere we went! though it was my intent to continue with black and white photographs, the editing process dictated otherwise… israel, for some reason, presented more favourably in colour the deeper i got into the project.

i will indeed take a stab at presenting some of the work in b&w, but that is for another time… for now, take in this beautiful scene from the eilat mountains: a desert acacia tree surrounded by colourful sandstone cliffs and mountains as we were making our way to the exit of the red canyon.
