"Just a little bit further, just a few more sets of steps." - That's what I kept murmuring to myself as I neared the end of my first few mile walk and then climb up The Mount of Olives, as the harsh and unforgiving Middle Eastern sun was beating down on me.
I made it to the top, scoped out my location, took my heavy bag off and just stared quietly into the distance, observing and taking in the moment, and imagining what I was about to create.
I watched as day turned to night, as it had for countless times throughout millenia on these walls I was looking across the way at, the walls of the Old City of Jerusalem. It was a beautiful moment. I kept thinking of who else through history has watched this same sunset on these same walls. It was mind boggling.
After the sun finally set, and night began to set in, the day dreaming stopped and the tripod came out!
Here's my image from that night, well, besides the panorama I may post soon too ;) Enjoy!
