nature and landscape

Nature has a healing power for me.
Landscape can be far away or very close, it doesn't matter.
The less human intervention I can record, the more I can regenerate.

It does not feel like a clichee to me. It's there, I feel lucky to press the shutter at the right moment, the right angle, the right light.

the ancient Napolean City of Acre

Acre (or Akko)was a strategic coastal link to the Levant. In crusader times it was known as St. John d'Acre after the Knights Hospitaller of St John order who had their headquarters there. Acre is the holiest city of the Bahá'í Faith

it has everything from an ancient harbour to local delicacies, 
old alleys and mosques and chilled cafes.

And of course, photo opportunities galore:

I worked with my 24-70mm Sigma Zoom 
and my wonderful 100mm Canon
which was fantastic with the food shots

all natural light of course
