Birds at the lake (part 3)

As we moved on, on the waterline of the lake we met a lot of birds. I tried to capture a few of them. Because they move a lot and fly away when you get too close, it's not always easy the photograph them. I took a whole lot of pictures but only a few came out well.

The dam (part 2)

As we moved on we came to the (as far as I know) only dam this size we have in Israel.
It's a beautiful site with lots of green and a great area to travel, as well by foot or bike or even horseback. The water wasn't so clean so we didn't go in. Here are some pictures of and from the dam.

PHOTO TRIP 1 (part 1)

Here I am again after a very nice weekend. On Saturday I went with Smadar's cousin on a trip to make some pictures. It was great. We took a 4weeldrive jeep and got to some beautiful places. After we came home, tired but very satisfied, we promised to do this very more often. Here are some pictures to start with, in the next few days I'll post some more. I hope you like it.

Yom etzma'ut

Today we celebrate Israel's 60 Independence Day. Witch is always a big happening and party here. It's a big headache for the security forces because there are big amounts of people in open places, so easy targets for terrorists. But let me focus on the more happy side. The official ceremonies start in Jerusalem on the evening of Independence Day (yesterday evening) also every town and village has it's own stage with concerts and celebrations. Who doesn't go to the celebrations most likely stays home for the BBQ . We went to family next door. They live on the 12th floor so we hade a great view over the area and every few minutes another town in the area lighted fireworks. This pic is from the fireworks in our town. Today we go for another BBQ in a nearby Forrest, I hope to make some more nice picture there aswell.

Party time

Finally a new post. It's been a while since my last post but I haven't made so many pics lately. And then I remembered the bar mitzwa we had a few weeks ago and there I made a few nice pics. Here are two I liked myself. I hope it doesn't make you hungry.
