Photographer's Note

Another view of Jerusalem from the Haas Promenade. This panoramic viewpoint offers an overwhelming sight of the east part of Jerusalem, with the Old City and Old-Walls, including Mount Zion domes and towers the Temple Mount,
To the upper left, is the modern Jerusalem, first built out-of the old town walls in the mid 19th century.

The barren-land trough area between the Old-city walls, just south to the Dormizione basilica and the Abu-Tor houses, where the small green grove, is the "Gehanna": The valley of Hinnom, traditionally known in folklor - a free translation to English as "Hell" (read the Wikipedia page about), on the map: 31.7705, 35.228 . Superstitiously, almost no-one is taking a walk down there...

It was a 25˚C and light wind on a bright day, -1/3 exp. Bias, a cropped 16:9 aspect ratio.
