Rosh Hanikra

Rosh Hanikra, meaning “head of the grottos” is located on the mediterranean coast of Israel in the Western Galilee. The  caverns have been carved out for centuries by the pounding of the mediterranean.

Rosh Hanikra is the meeting point of the Israeli – Lebanese border. It’s fascinating to walk through the tunnels excavated by the British army engineering units in the early 1940’s for the Haifa – Beirut railway. The plan was to build a railway all the way to Turkey as a gateway to Europe.

My husband, son and I took a day trip to Rosh Hanikra and the city of Akko that day and they were surprised when I threw my tripod into the trunk of our car. It’s a good thing I brought it along as all these images were long exposures.
