sandstone pillar

 

with the late afternoon behind me, i made my way from the arches in timna park back to solomon’s pillars. i would not have daylight for much longer, so i went back to where i was earlier in the day to photograph a ‘close-up’, if you will, of one the sandstone pillars under better lighting conditions.

the arches

having climbed into the arches and taken some shots, i wanted to get a wider angle perspective of the surroundings that house the arches rock formation – another of the ‘main events’ at timna park in the southern negev desert of israel.

at this point, i am standing on a ledge taking in the impressive beauty of the area. this shot keeps the arches as the focal point (i hope!) in the photograph.

skeleton face / skeleton face wall

the mushroom and a half photographed, i continued my trek to mushroom rock, another of the prominent rock formations in timna park. as i was approaching it and looking for a good vantage point, i was struck by a sandstone wall that seemed to have a carved skeleton face…

mushroom and a half

 

with solomon’s pillars behind me for now, i continued further into the park and was greeted by this duo: the rock formations known as ‘mushroom and a half’.

opening

after having climbed into the vertical cavities between the pillars i felt inspired to explore the cliffs that house solomon’s pillars even though time was ticking away… there was still plenty more to see!

making my way to the southern end of the structure, i discovered it also houses hathor’s temple: the egyptian temple dedicated to the goddess of copper, hathor. it’s by no means grand, but it is there… further around and up some sandstone steps and i came onto this arch or opening in the cliff wall that affords views of the timna valley and mountains.
