Meitar from afar

.

Here's the 6:00 pm summer-blue sky over my town in the Negev desert.


And this is the same angle but from a higher elevation, after we walked up a hill.
If you enlarge the photo, you can see our Northern Neighborhood on the right.
It was the first section of Meitar, begun in 1984.
To the left is the Southern Neighborhood, which followed.
Off in the distance is Hura, a Bedouin town about three times bigger than Meitar in population.
Meitar has over 8,000 souls.
.
Shabbat shalom and happy Sky Watch Friday.

Beautiful view- and in such lovely light, too!

The topography and flora remind me of some parts of Southern California.

A very lovely place to call home. Sun down is just beginning here. Shalom Shabbat Dina

My son is in Australia, planning tours for 2017, the 100 year anniversary of the charge of the 4th Light Horse Brigade at Beersheba in 1917. I was delighted when he mentioned Meitar in a speech to the RSL ex servicemen.

From afar, this view looks like it hasn't changed much since over the centuries.
