stormfront

 

having started out the day with some cloud cover, we had visited the aqueduct at caesarea. just after finishing my shoot there, we got a heck of a rainstorm that lasted about a half hour or so… our next stop was to visit some of my wife’s family in haifa, the northern port city in israel on the mediterranean.

the family visit completed, we went to visit a couple of sights. here is the port city from above as a stormfront was moving in (or out).
