To you in the south, happy winter solstice!

Sunrise over the Sea of Galilee. View from Tiberias looking toward the Golan Heights.

Happy SWF! We had the sky up there, all speckled with stars, and we used to lay on our backs and look up at them, and discuss about whether they was made or only just happened... mine's up too hope you can drop by.

Beautiful shot. You reminded me its winter solstice here - now the days start getting longer, and hopefully sunnier.

Hello again - the sea, sun and sky give you a warm glow all over. This is my first Sky Watch Friday. I chose a solar halo for my contribution. I invite you to come see. -- Margy

Nathalie said...

Happy solstice to you. It'll be FĂȘte de la Musique tomorrow, music everywhere in every street... it's a balmy 32° today, should be a magic night!

I loved your Yiddish proverb yesterday.

Jerez said...

These words, places, live in my history, Sea Of Galilee, and I reckon I know that place , I am aware of it from somewhere deep inside, altho, I have not stepped foot there, at least in this lifetime.
A great teacher was there.
I still feel his presence.
Happy to have a photo to go with the heart felt connection.

Cherie said...

BEAUTIFUL!! Just gorgeous, calming, inviting.

You have so many lovely things to photograph in your country. I enjoy viewing them very much.

Happy Summer Solstice to you, too, Dina!

I shared your blessing with my mother and it made her smile. She's doing much better. :D
