Courthouse under clouds

.

Ever since autumn started a few days ago the Negev is definitely getting some welcome new cloud cover.
Here is the sky over Beer Sheva, "the capital of the Negev."
This is the new court building, Heichal Hamishpat.
You can enlarge the photo nicely with two clicks.

That is quite an impressive building. We are enjoying a few clouds here too. It's a nice change, for however long it lasts.

Wow, Dina, when the photo is enlarged, the clouds can be seen reflected in the windows. Great shot.
I was checking on the cruise we discussed (the one we probably won't go on) and noticed it stops twice in Israel, one place much closer to you.
Maybe next year? Who knows?
Meanwhile, it is always fascinating to see your photos.

I like the symmetry.

That is so funny :) "Under a cloud" usually means suspected of something illegal or immoral. I thought oh dear, the family court has been up to no good.

Karen said...

Terrific perspective!

Dina said...

Hels, no no, don't worry, as far as I know the court building is not "under a cloud of suspicion." hehe
That's why the title of the post uses the plural "... under clouds."

Have a wonderful weekend, Dina!

It's a wonderful building with a Middle East stylish look.

What a lovely building! I'm sorry I didn't know that you had moved, it was a crazy busy summer and I haven't been good about keeping up. I'm so glad that you posted and let me know! And now it looks like I have some catching up to do :)
Will you change the name of your blog? I'm so curious...

What a nice looking building. I like that there is more stone than glass!
