Today I want to share with you the wonders of a region located in central Israel. Mere 40 minutes from Tel Aviv and Jerusalem that offers a lot of exciting sites to visit and a world heritage site - Lachish Region. This hilly area has underground man-made caves the held whole communities in the big Jewish rebellion against the Roman Empire in 135 A.D.Lush green hills (in winter-early spring months) with shepherds that look like they just walk with King David and Jesus 2000-3000 years... continue reading

In a very interesting coincidence, I stumbled upon this TED talk about 2 weeks before I reached my 2,000 sales benchmark (today!!!).Grit is a concept that claims that individuals who show passion and perseverance have more chance to succeed in the long run than other factors such as IQ or EQ. More information can be found in this link: Angela Lee Duckworth: Grit: The power of passion and persverance I can testify that in photography it could never be truer.I started my photography... continue reading
After a long pause in my contributions, I have finally got back to business and in previous weeks made something like 20 uploads.I am taking advantage of the winter season in Israel. It's mostly clear and temperatures range between 15-25 celsius most of the time, with rainy days here and there.This allows for day trips in very comfortable weather and it's quite common to get dramatic skies due to clouds as oppose to other seasons. If you are brave or lucky you get also capture post/... continue reading
Two days ago, someone bought 8 of my images in one day, all from the same "Holy land series" images. These images have been posted on DT for couple of years now, selling here and there, while I slowly increase the number of images that belong to this series. Never before have I sold so many in one day. What can you take from my experience (beyond me tapping on my own shoulder.... :-) ) :1) Follow your heart - You will probably shoot better images if you like what you document... continue reading
I've been documenting Israel's natural beauty on DT for almost 10 years. It never cease to amaze me how deep is the contrast between the beauty of the country and the difficulties that accompany those who dare living here. Despite the fact that Isis is on our borders, The situation with the Palestinians never looked worse, and generally speaking it's pretty hard making a living here, the citizens of this country love it. There is something magical in its vistas, its weather, its ever... continue reading
It's October 31st. Today was the first heavy rains in Israel. We are still in what's considered Fall season.In a recent post I mentioned the fall a little, but it was more general overview of possible locations and what's special in each area. In this post I'd like to show more examples of what I call ""Israel Fall colors".The widest spread color of our coming fall is... White - Starting Mid September until mid October, the harvest of cotton is coloring the fields of Israel in white bales scattered... continue reading
Everyone hears about the civil war in Syria, with heart breaking images, bad news and ISIS.This includes the Syrian side of the Golan Heights. There is something very frustrating to know that the beautiful scenery of the region, is abackground to this horror. (The Israeli-Syrian Border in central Golan Heights near Hazeka)Yet, on the Israeli side of the border, you can still enjoy the beauty of the region. This post is about the famous landmarks of the Golan Heights and tips about visiting.... continue reading
Summer is almost over in Israel.Summer of war, casualties and rockets flying all over the place.Also the Israeli summer isn't very tourist friendly as the heat limit your choices to Swimming Pool/Sea during the hot hours. But, like I said, the summer is over, and Israel has a lot more to offer than bombs and territorial/religious/all of the above reasons to fight.The fall also brings the Jewish new year's eve, and new hope for quieter and happier year.... continue reading

I visited Israel! +1 country in my 'been there seen that' list) I really liked it! (of course the rigorous security in the airport was a little bit too much.. but if you are surrounded by countries that pretty much are your enemies what other choices you have..).I was born in a Christian family, so I remember Bible stories pretty good, though I'm more of an atheist. And when you get there you feel very strange, because past mixes with present, stories with realty. It's like an extended reality... continue reading
