Photographer's Note

Another view of the ancient city ruins of Gadara looking towards the Sea of Galilee and the Israeli lakeshore town of Tiberius at left on the opposite shore. The Jordan River flows in from the right behind the spur and exits the lake to the left to continue south to the Dead Sea. This lake is also known as Sea of Tiberius and Kinneret / Kinnereth Lake. It is the lowest freshwater lake on Earth at 209 m to 215 m below sea level.

The ancient Greek City existed from roughly the 3rd century BC to 747 AD, when it was largely decimated by an earthquake and abandoned.
