Photographic Journey to the Ancient World of Christ

Happy Easter dear reader and friend!

In this article I will show you some pictures taken in the ancient places where Jesus once walked the Earth. A journey deep inside Israel and the nearby states where the Jordan Ri’ver flows make me fell closer to the meaning of the Easter Celebration. I hope, through this photographic documentary you will also get an insight.

The city of Jerusalem, capital of the State of Israel, located in the Judean Mountains between the Mediterranean Sea and the Dead Sea, contains a number of significan’t and ancient Christian landmarks.
Ancient Roman artefacts left standing as well as some Greek ones too. This means that by visiting this place you get in contact with many cultures, local Muslim and Jewish as well as Europeans.

In the Judean Mountains, and more precisely in the Mount of Olives, is the Gardens of Gethsemane where Jesus was captured by Romans after the Betray. A picture of 2000 years old Olives is shown in this article.
The presents of olives and palms is a prove of the Mediterranean climate of this region (relatively mild winters and high temperatures in the summer).

A bit farther, in the desert, over the cliffs, there is a place with big chances of becoming the Earths 8th Wonder: Petra is an archaeological site in Jordan, famous for having many stone structures (ancient houses) carved into the rock.
As some final words, the pictures were taken with a Sony Cybershot DSC-T3. As you can see, the colors obtained with this camera are vibrant; the sharpness and the low noise also add to the beauty of the images. I did made some brightness/contrast adjustment.

I started photography as a hobby in 2005, during college. My passion slowly became a more important part of my life since 2008. Because of using a combination of my photographic knowledge, with those of internet marketing, I like to call myself a "photomarketer".
