Archaeologist in the sky

Way up on the scaffold, see the man with the camera?
That's our boss, fearless Zvi.
What won't an archaeologist do for a good photo of his excavation site!


Many other angles on the sky over at Sky Watch Friday.
Go over and crane your neck with us.

I understand his compulsion, but I wouldn't want to be up on that scaffold if a stiff wind were blowing! Interesting Sky Watch, Dina.

Leora said...

When I see Zvi, I think, yeah, I'm a coward. I'll take my photos from the ground. Great SWF.

That is very high up. You would have a nice view thou. I am a bit scared of heights. Happy SWF.

i wonder if jerusalem has a height or floor limit for buildings constructed in its area. i noticed it because there are no skycrapers there.

Rambling Woods said...

I don't even want to look up there. Tooo high...

Louise said...

Excellent sky with interesting composition! What a job you have!

"Louis's" acrophobia kicked in just looking at this!

interesting contrast of colours between the sky and the earth

How nice the sky let archaeologists look at the earth :)

Skywatch vs Earthwatch

I be that building won't last as long as the artefacts you are excavating. Like the crane against the sky.

RuneE said...

Photography first - other considerations second!

Greyscale Territory said...

O this is different! Love the rough texture of the building against the beauty of the sky!

A nice view for you and the cameraman in the picture! The sky color and concrete structure meld together well.

John said...

Nice shot and a wonderful perspective.

Kelly said...

Impressive and beautiful view from the bottom of the new building!

Lew said...

A long way up for a ground level photo! Perspective is one key to a great photo an you found it. I also enjoyed your interesting post on your current dig.

Nice perspective!

Wren said...

Oh, I'm glad he is that dedicated, because I could not do that. It is wonderful picture to share, however - the excitement of archaeology and the beauty of the sky in the background.

Brenda said...

Great photo! I have such a fear of heights, I'm afraid the site would go unrecorded if I had to be so high.

babooshka said...

I have no head for heights but cranes and skies I just like snapping. Fantastic skywards shot.

Kay said...

Yikes! I'm glad it's not you up there.
