The general area of Wadi Qumran where the Dead Sea scrolls were found. The ruins are of the ascetic Jewish sect, the Essenes, who lived here 2,000 years ago and are thought to have produced the scrolls that were discovered in 1947. The wadi starts up there in the mountain and runs behind the excavated ruins, to the Dead Sea, out of the picture to the left.
What you see in front, including the mountains and what lies behind them, is all part of the Negev desert.
May your thirst be quenched, this weekend.
