Sunrise over the Ramon Crater

Ramon Crater, Israel

The Ramon Crater is located in the middle of the Negev desert, and forms Israel's largest national park. It wasn't actually created by a meteor impact. Rather, it's the world's largest erosion cirque.
Due to it's arid environment, humid weather, or any type of precipitations are quite rare. On this particular Autumn morning, however, humidity was at more than 90%, generating some low clouds and light fog - an extremely unusual phenomenon for the season and for the area in general. Watching the sunrise over the desert from the clifftop is always a beautiful sight. But the conditions on this particular morning made it simply spectacular.
