desert acacia of the mountains

for those of you familiar with my earlier work, you will notice that the photographs that i captured in israel have been presented in colour. it became rather evident that israel is an incredibly special place. i was taken by the wonderful scenery afforded almost everywhere we went! though it was my intent to continue with black and white photographs, the editing process dictated otherwise… israel, for some reason, presented more favourably in colour the deeper i got into the project.

i will indeed take a stab at presenting some of the work in b&w, but that is for another time… for now, take in this beautiful scene from the eilat mountains: a desert acacia tree surrounded by colourful sandstone cliffs and mountains as we were making our way to the exit of the red canyon.

canyon trail 1

timna park and its wonderful rock formations behind me, the next adventure would come by way of the red canyon in the eilat mountains. also north of the city of eilat, it is situated off of route 12 – the road along the egyptian border in southern israel. deriving its name from the red sandstone prominent in this part of the world, it is a splendid hike along a trail that eventually descends into the canyon by way of ladders and metal rungs secured to rock walls. once through the canyon one exits onto the shani riverbed (which is usually dry unless there is heavy rain or flooding in the area) and a climb back up to the starting point ensues.

a special thank you to my cousin’s partner ouri s. for being our guide that afternoon!
