Photographer's Note

A Greek Orthodox monastery sits atop the Biblical site where Jesus spent forty days and forty nights fasting and meditating during the temptation of Satan. The summit of Mount Temptation provides panoramic views of the West Bank town of Jericho (the oldest continuously inhabited city in the world) and across the Jordan Valley.

Clinging to the sheer face of the cliffs, the monastic walls are an almost seamless extension to the historic caves where monks have walked, slept and prayed for nearly 2000 years.
