Although Israel is a small country, one type of location that it has in plentitude is deserts.

Whatever kind of desert shot you are looking for, chances are you can find it in Israel. It is particularly convenient to shoot at desert locations in Israel because the desert areas are a relatively short distance from the large cities.
There are several desert regions in the south of the country including the Judean desert, the Dead Sea region, the Zin desert, the Negev, and the Arava. These areas together make up more than 50 percent of Israel’s land mass.

In the deserts, you will find canyons, wildlife, oases, UNESCO world heritage sites, sand dunes, and large craters. There are also desert cities, which include Beer Sheva and Arad. Israel’s deserts are ideal for biblical scene recreations and landscape shots.
