This is a general view of Jerusalem with Cedrom Valley in evidence. We can see the tombs of orthodox Jews waiting for the end of times, the Dome of Rock and the Russian church in a side.

Esta é uma vista geral de Jerusalém, com os túmulos dos judeus ortodoxos esperando o final dos tempos. Vemos o Vale do Cedrom com o Domo da Rocha além e a igreja russa num lado.

Hello Jorge,
What a beautiful view of the city of Jerusalem. Very well composed and bathing in a fine and bright light. The many tombs make a fine foreground for the city in the background. The Dome of the Rock really stands out.

Hello Jorge,

A wonderful panorama view about the old and new city part.
Create nice depth and perspective.
An excellent composition and lovely of colours.
Very well done, TFS.

Best regards,

Hola Jorge,

una imagen que presenta el contraste entre el cementerio y la ciudad al fondo, es una forma diferente de presentar la ciudad, bien visto,

Un saludo,


Ciao Jorge, fascinating panorama of fantastic city and gret cemeteryy, excellent clarity, splendid light and wonderful colors, very well done, my friend, have a good week end, ciao Silvio

Hello Jorges,

This is such a fine expansive view of the city, especially on Beta!
The two cities, of tombs and houses, are separated merely by a valley and the city wall.
I don't think I have ever seen such a wide view, to appreciate the location of recognisable features , like the golden domes.

My warm regards,
Bev :-)

Hi Jorge
I've never seen this view before, and from your photo we can see the type of atmosphere in the sky, makes for difficult photography :)

its a thought provoking image for sure. and lets not even start to talk about the politics involved! cheers

Olá, Jorge!

Uma bela vista panorâmica da cidade, e interessante os tons mais neutros da cidade, com nenhum prédio tentando ganhar mais destaque que a cúpula dourada de algum templo ao fundo! Muito boa iluminação e profundidade! Belo trabalho!

Hi Jorge,

I recall this view. I had wanted to start heading back to Amman in Jordan and I was directed to the public bus to Mount of Olives instead. Not quite what I wanted to see as I was afraid the border would close early in the evening but apparently it was open much later than I thought. I took a similar quick shot & hurried back to the hotel near the Damascus Gate. Tfs!

Hello Jorge,
This is a beautiful view of Jerusalem from the top of Mount of Olives, with the lovely Dome of the Rock glistening in the sun.
