Galilee Sunset

Click to enlarge
.

This was the view from our festival campsite last weekend. Camping on the banks of the Sea of Galilee and this gorgeous sunset over the hills are just two of the things that makes Jacob's Ladder a truly unique experience. Add in the great music and it's no wonder people keep coming back year after year after year.
.
I'd also like to extend a special invitation to all those here from Skywatch Friday to participate in Summer Stock Sundays - a new photo project which will run here at Around the Island. Summer Stock Sundays will begin on 31 May. Share your barbecues, your beaches, your cannonballing kids, that island sunset, an old pair of flip flops, anything that says summer to you.
.
We'll be playing each week all summer long - the linkie will go up each Saturday night at midnight Israel time (5pm EST) so keep those cameras handy and see you on the 31st.

beautiful sky. I enjoy reading about your experiences in Isreal. I think it would be a moment I would never forget to camp along the shores of the sea of Galilee.

Wow! Awesome sky! and a whole weekend of live music to go with it? Does life get any better? I submit that it does not.

A stunning picture.....with such beautiful colours and those atmospheric trees silhouetted against the skyline. I love the contrast of small tree on the right against the larger, leaning ones on the right.
You live in what sounds like an amazing country. I really hope to see it myself one day.
