Caesarea Aqueduct, Photo by Michael Melford


Photo: Michael Melford

If you haven't discovered it yet, National Geographic magazine's Our Shot is one of the best daily photo gallery sites on the web. Their photos are always fantastic and cover a wide berth breadth of subjects.

Case in point, this photo of an aqueduct built by King Herod during the first century B.C. to carry water from a lake across 17 miles of desert into the ancient city of Caesarea (present day Israel). Michael Melford took this fantastic shot by moonlight.

On some of the columns, there are low enough stoops that you can climb on -- I went up on top when I visited and walked down -- lots of local cats hang out on top, but it's a strange sensation to be on top of this ancient structure.
Abusive comment hidden. (Show it anyway.)
