Israel – Nothing but blue skies

In the Netherlands we have a lot of dull grey skies in this period of the year. It’s a big difference to the sky in Israel, so for this post I selected my best pictures of the blue skies over there. During the tour through Israel we experienced some rainy days, too, but I learned to see rain from a different point of view. Rain is in Jewish tradition seen as a blessing from above. Even today it is considered as something good, because on average there are only 30 days of rain throughout the whole year in Israel! We have rain all the time in The Netherlands and we mostly complain about it, but this made me think about being thankful for once for having rain.

These pictures were taken at Caesarea, Tel Hazor, Jerusalem and the Sea of Galilee. The sky was incredibly blue in real life, but this doesn’t always translate into the pictures. I’ll show you in a Photography 101 this Wednesday how I enhanced the blue skies in Lightroom and how you can do it as well without Lightroom or Photoshop! See the tutorial HERE!
