Patti said...

Beautiful! I love the morning mist in the background.

P.S. My thumb is not too green, but I keep trying! I try to buy indestructible plants for indoors. ;-)

Julia Smith said...

Wow. I love so many things about this shot. The scale of the rowers against the hills behind, the three levels of hills, the different tones of each level, the sequence of neutrals, the tranquility...

Maribeth said...

Looks familiar! ;-)

AAARGH! This picture needs a story. It's lovely. I hate it when you go wordless and there is a story to be told!

The light at dawn is really nice, with the colors and haze. Sometimes I wonder if it's cold or not in these scenes (I'm used to morning having a bit of a chill, even in the summer).

Stan said...

Very nice. Pictures like this are quiet and peaceful.

Wonderful shot, such a serene and beautiful view. Happy WW !

Dina said...

Ahh, so serene.
Just think, Harei Yehuda could look like this if we only had a body of water. There are plans of turning the Motsa reservoir into a park with a permanent body of water (instead of just in rainy season).
