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.

  7. 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.
