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.

A Stroll Through Rothschild Blvd.

I hope that my American friends are enjoying the Memorial Day long weekend. I won’t take much of your time today, just wanted to share this image from a stroll down Rothschild Blvd in Tel Aviv, this past March.

I’m heading back to Israel in a couple of months and I’m looking forward to photographing this same spot but this time with the trees full of leaves.

After the Rain

There’s something about walking through Central Park after a rain storm that’s both calming and mysterious.

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.

Monterosso

Monterosso or Monterosso al Mare is the last of the 5 villages in Cinque Terre that I had the pleasure to visit.

Unfortunately minutes after we arrived the skies opened up and a downpour ensued. Monterosso is the only village that has a sand beach in Cinque Terre and despite the weather there were plenty of beach goers.  Now I don’t usually wimp out because of the weather but it was late in the afternoon and the rain just wouldn’t let up so we decided to cut our visit short and head back to Manarola and have dinner. I did mange to get a few shots though 🙂

Play Misty For Me

I captured this image last fall when I was out photographing on Ward Island. It was a fog filled afternoon and evening and I never got the sunset that I was after. This is the path leading to the water with a view of the Toronto skyline.

After processing in LR5 I ran the image through OnOne Perfect Effects and added the Glow preset.
