All within half an hour

.

I went north for an overnight at friends' house in my former village.
This morning at 5:27 the moon shining on  the olive leaves made them even more silvery than normal.


Ten minutes later the moon was setting in the beautiful still-cool Jerusalem Hills.


Sunrise followed moon set at 6:00, gradually spreading light in the Soreq Valley.

The silvery olive trees remind me of Reuven Rubin's beautiful paintings of Jerusalem eg http://tinyurl.com/o6qgjta

Beautiful light from the moon just before sun rise!

Dina said...

friends, thank you all. So glad you enjoyed the sky.

Hels, thanks for the beautiful Rubin painting (link)! It does look like a scene from there in the Jerusalem Hills. Where I stayed we can see Jerusalem off to the east on the horizon.
