Wave II

“The waves broke and spread their waters swiftly over the shore. One after another they massed themselves and fell; the spray tossed itself back with the energy of their fall. The waves were steeped deep-blue save for a pattern of diamond-pointed light on their backs which rippled as the backs of great horses ripple with muscles as they move. The waves fell; withdrew and fell again, like the thud of a great beast stamping.”

Wind Beneath My Wings

Birds flying high
You know how I feel
Sun in the sky
You know how I feel
Breeze driftin’ on by
You know how I feel
It’s a new dawn
It’s a new day
It’s a new life
For me
And I’m feeling good
I’m feeling good

The 5 Best Things About My Trip to Israel & Tel Aviv Kite Boarding

I’ve just returned from 2 weeks in Israel and while I’m still trying to shake this jet lag, here are the top 5 best things about this trip:

#5 – Shakshuka is the Middle East’s greatest breakfast invention (go ahead…Google it 🙂 ), but really it’s great any time of the day.

#4 – Tel Aviv! it’s one of the best cities in the world. If you don’t believe me check out Lonely Planet’s annual “best cities” rankings. I’ll do a separate post on Tel Aviv soon.

#3 – Using my new Canon 5D Mark 3 – love, love, love it. More on that later.

#2 – The beach.

#1 – Seeing my SON!

At this time of the year, with blustering winds and cresting waves, kite boarding was the sport du jour.

Saturday Skate in Central Park

Walking through Central Park on a mild January day my husband and I stopped to watch the ice skating. I knew standing there that I wanted to create an image that I could turn into a digital painting. The skaters in their colourful jackets, the buildings in the background…it was in front of me but the image I wanted to create was in my head.

The Bridge Path at Ein Afek

Nature reserves are abundant in Israel and on any given day are explored by tourists and locals alike. The nature reserve at Ein Afek just north of Haifa is no exception.

On the northern slope of Ein Afek lies a two-story building from the crusader period (history abounds everywhere in Israel) and from there you can hike through paths surrounded by dense foliage and riverbank flora. The path leads to a bridge path that snakes its way over the lake.
