Photographer's Note

A small series of pictures from the Ashdod citadel ruins, which was built as part of a chain-fort-mounds along the Mediterranean coast, like Ashquelon, Caesarea, Acre and more.
This specific ancient coastal castle, rather much smaller than other forts, explained by a plaque shown on the WS. This view of its inner yard is due north along the seashore.
It was built during the Fatimid (early Muslim) period as part of the shoreline protection against foreign invaders.
Added a Wikipedia page about the place.

Precise location on the map: 31.7803,34.6216 .

Pictures are RAW converted into JPEG, F8.0, ISO100.
