Sky Watch Sabbath

A late afternoon, dust-filled sky over a sheikh's tomb and the cemetery of Darajat in the Negev desert. This is through a zoom lens. The hill actually was quite far away. One of the things I had not enough time to visit during my 5-day stay in the village. Even after our daily six hours learning Arabic in the classroom, the evenings were filled with activities.
Friday is the Moslem day of rest, while Friday night and Saturday are the Jewish Sabbath.
Shabbat shalom!

Looks like a quiet, religious day in the Negev. Even the sky looks solemn.
