Weekly Photo Challenge – Edge (Masada)

Masada

This week’s photo challenge is Edge.

These pictures were taken at Masada.  Masada is located on the eastern fringe of the Judean Desert near the shore of the the Dead Sea.  Masada was inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List in 2001.

The last bastion of Jewish freedom fighters fought against the Romans at Masada. They lived their life at the edge and died heroically defending the fort.  The tragic events of the last days of the rebels at Masada transformed it into both a Jewish cultural icon and a symbol of humanity’s continuous struggle for freedom from oppression.

Snake Path to walk up to the summit of Masada.  In ancient times, there is no barrier and the path was much narrower, people would have to walk close to the edge.
