Landscapes Amid the Negev Mountains
In the heart of the Negev, south of the Great Ramon Crater (Wadi Ramon). Limestone of the Cretonian Epoch, with remains of volcanic eruptions in the form of basalt hills. The Ramon crater itself contains sharply eroded formations due to sudden rains and considerable daily fluctuations of temperature.
The valleys are covered with crumbling formations and rains are followed by a thin herbage. The region is on the border between the desert and the grazing areas occasionally visited by a few bedouins.
