I recently took a mini-vacation to Eilat and the Red Sea with my partner and his family. We drove down through the Negev, going through Mizpe Ramon, an overlook of a giant crater carved by an ancient sea. I somewhat disagree with calling it a crater because traditionally, a crater would be something round, usually resulting from an explosion or impact. But we don't truly have a word in English for Ramon Crater, so they call it a Crater. I took a lot of pictures in the desert on the way down, but not as many in Eilat proper, excepting the aquarium. I wanted to try and relax, rather than carrying around my gear the entire time. I also got a few shots while we were around the Dead Sea on the way north to drop my partner's brother in Jerusalem. I was awestruck by my first visit to the desert and the Red Sea, and though the heat and sun don't suit me, I really hope to go back soon.
