Breaks of the destiny
In the photo - The Small Mahtesh (crater).
In the Negev Desert, the naked and unique geological layers can be observed due to millions of years of surface ground erosion. There are two versions of occurrence of this surprising natural phenomenon. Some geologists assume, that craters (on globe there are four such craters, three of them are Mahtesh Ramon, Big Mahtesh, and Small Mahtesh - in the territory of Israel, and one more - on Sinaisky peninsula) were formed due to displacement of soft and firm breeds of the ground. Yet another theory insists on a meteoric origin of such craters because of abnormal geological formations which appear to be extraterrestrial since they are found nowhere on Earth.

Бог с ними, с версиями происхождения. Потрясает какие могучие силы все это создавали. И снимок это очень хорошо отражает. Кроме того он очень красив и по композиции, и по тональному решению (слепящие облака - супер) и по цвету.
