Flowers Of Galilee #2
|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|The shot was taken during last weeken in Har Halutz, Western Galilee.|
Galilee (Hebrew: הגליל ha-Galil, Arabic: الجليل al-Jaleel), meaning "circuit", is a large region overlapping with much of the North District of Israel. It is traditionally divided into three regions:
- The Upper Galilee
- The Lower Galilee
- The Western Galilee
The Western Galilee, also called the "Northern Coastal Plain", stretches from north of Haifa up to Rosh HaNikra on the border between Israel and Lebanon.
Most of the Galilee consists of rocky terrain, at heights of about 500-700 meters. There are several high mountain such as Mount Tabor and Mount Meron. The relatively low tempartures and the large amounts of rainfall every year made the Galilee a center of flora and wildlife, and many birds pass by every year in their migration and create an attraction. The Hulah Valley resort is a welcoming home for them. The streams and waterfalls, the latter mainly in the Upper Galilee, along with vast fields of greenery and colorful wildflowers make it a popular tourist attraction in Israel.

I see a Calendula bud, a tulip seedbox, and can't think of the name of the bloomin' flowers... BUT I like the colours!

pretty colors, well composed with good sharpness on the orange ones, just as david mentioned it seems a little bit dark - the WS is good.
