What a wonderful photograph. The view and the gate are both marvelous. What detail in that beautiful gate with the vine of thorns and the delicate circular designs.
I envy you, getting to see Israel. I have always wanted to go there.
I have missed talking with you, and plan to catch up more soon.
I hope you and your family have had a wonderful Christmas, and I wish you a very happy new year ahead.
With warmest regards,
I agree with MaryAlice. It's a splendid picture.
I agree with MaryAlice and Jacques, it is really a wonderful picture.
You came back home with a wonderful collection of pictures. Thanks for sharing them with us.
Excellent composition, the door to the landscape
WONDERFUL! Cheers Eva
All the best wishes for 2009 for you and your family.
Happy New Year
I join the others in praise of this shot, but I'd rename it using "Gateway" somewhere in the title because that's how it feels.
Wonderful picture of this beautiful gate, Marilyn!
This is a very nice capture Marilyn. I like how the gate is silhouetted against the background.
All my best to you and yours for the New Year, Larry
Thank you, Mary Alice, Jacques, Sylvie, picsonthemove, Eva, Erik, Hank, Anne, and Larry, for visiting this beautiful place. (And, Hank, I hope you approve of the new title. Thanks.)
I took the photo from the modern Church of the Beatitudes, perched on a hill overlooking the Sea of Galilee which shows in the nearby picture but not (or hardly) in this one. According to tradition, the nearby hillside is where Jesus gave his Sermon on the Mount (which begins with the Beatitudes).
Best wishes for the New Year, Marilyn
I love this photo Marilyn. Something about gates lend themselves to interesting photos.
I had no chance to visit Israel. I've crosseed Jordan river but the Israeli frontier guard showed me the way back to Arabic site only ... :(
Splendid picture Marilyn, more than a photo, it evokes deep feelings... thank you... Best regards, Jurgis
Thank you, Keith, Janina, and Jurgis, for visiting here. It is a special view.
I'm sorry you did not get into Israel, Janina. Perhaps some other time?
Best wishes, Marilyn
