Day two - March 2nd

Ein Gedi:  Another wet day… I was outside by 5:30am hoping for a nice sunrise… it was all right.   The sun peered between a slit in the clouds just over the Jordanian mountains and painted the sky with some beautiful colours.  All the while I was dealing with very high winds and light rain.

Breakfast at 7:30 then some photo optimization.

I was packed and on my way to the south – thinking about stopping and Masada and then on to Elat.  On my way I stopped to photograph some Ibex. They look like goats but with some serious horns…

About 5 K down the road there was not going on as the road was covered with a flash flood that came off the mountains.  Remember the Dead Sea is the lowest place on earth nothing drains out everything flows in.

Well I’m back at Ein Gedi which is nice be a little frustrating as they have closed the walking paths for the next few days that would have afforded some spectacular images.  This is the place were David hid in the caves and one night snuck in and cut a piece off King Saul’s garb.  I will catch this on the way back north.
