Photographer's Note

It would be useful to read the note and the link to Wikipedia:

Reckon that many people think Israel is a desert. Well,this picture would negate this notion.

I spent two days tour to the Upper-Galilee region that I did not visit for some 25-30 years already, which is a non-deserts area by far.

The whole area is a planted forest since the early 1950th, which by contrast I will show pictures from south Lebanon from a high observation near the border – you may see the differences.

The most common trees are Israel's Oak, and Israeli-Ella (Pistacia palaestina), Olive trees and Ashkhar (Rhamnus) bushes.

The two pictures were taken through the bus window while climbing the #8994 road about 1km from the blue-line border to Lebanon, at around 33.052, 35.349 on the map.

RAW, F4.0, 1/800, ISO100, spot.
