Arch and Olive


The knarled old olive tree you see through this arched window stands in the courtyard of the Church of the Multiplication of the Loaves and the Fishes in Tabgha, on the shores of the Sea of Galilee.

Inside the Church is a large rock, venerated since ancient times, that is believed to be the one upon which Jesus placed the bread and the fish when he fed the 5,000.

Cool composition!
By the way - I'm sorry that I never got back to you. I sold three photos at our Chanuka Fair! It was a lot of fun standing there, but I don't think I'm giving up my day job just yet :)
Anyway, thanks again for all your help!

What a long name for this church! I really like the soft buttery colour of this stone.

I love more the history than the religion, because finally we have all the same, it's with Jesus and Mohamed that it split and there are different believes.
Thanks for your mazeltof for my little Toby ! He is quiet a big baby for his one month !
