Can you identify the hill in our new header?

Have you noticed our new header photograph? Can you identify the location? It is a photo of the hill of Moreh mentioned in Judges 7.

I’m sure you know the story. The Israelites were oppressed by the Midianites who lived east of the Jordan River. In fact, the Midianites camped by the hill of Moreh in the Jezreel valley north of the Israelites (Judges 6:33). Gideon and his people camped beside the spring of Harod (Ein Harod). Our photo was made from Ein Harod, looking north toward the hill of Moreh.

Then Jerubbaal (that is, Gideon) and all the people who were with him, rose early and camped beside the spring of Harod; and the camp of Midian was on the north side of them by the hill of Moreh in the valley. (Judges 7:1 NAU)
