My country is arguably one of the smallest in the world. With little over 8000 sq. miles (20,000 sq. km) in size, it can fit 19 times inside California. Even more so, 60% of it is desert.

Nonetheless, it is one of the most successful and thriving countries on earth.

See if you can guess which country it is, by these interesting clues:

1. Here you can find the lowest point on earth, the world’s oldest continuously inhabited town and the oldest continuously used cemetery.

2. It is only 70 years old as an independent state, even though its history dates back more than 3000 years.

3. It has a major influence on the world’s advancements in science, technology and medicine, and has produced 12 Nobel Prize winners so far.

4. It is the only liberal democracy in a region of ongoing political turmoil.

5. The nation’s official language had not been spoken for centuries and was revived when the country was established.

6. All major religions consider this country to be the birthplace of the world.
Smile at whatever happens.

These clues may have helped you understand that the country I’m referring to is of course, Israel, also known as the Holy Land.

I was born and raised in Israel, and that’s where I launched my career as a professional photographer. I’ve been shooting my country’s incredible landscapes for over 10 years now.

But just by looking at these photos, I’m sure you would have never guessed where it was.

Besides being home to some of the world’s most iconic and historically important sites, Israel also has stunning and diverse landscapes that can rival any other country in the world.

Take a look for yourself.



Resembling the Salt Flats of Bolivia? The incredible Dead Sea, the lowest point on earth

Could be mistaken for any European capital, a main street in the Israeli capital of Jerusalem

Like a Greek Church by the Mediterranean. The Church of the 12 Apostles, Sea of Galilee

Wouldn’t you think that’s a seaside town on the Adriatic? In fact, that’s the Old City of Jaffa

Much like the hills of Tuscany… The luscious region of the Upper Galilee in Northern Israel

Just like the beautiful caves of Malta, crystal-clear turquoise waters in the grottoes of Rosh Hanikra

Could easily be a scene out of Rome. Walking through history in Beit She’an National Park
