Bougainvillea against a Galilee Sky

I finally got a bougainvillea shot that I'm happy with. It's nearly impossible to make an image that really captures that elusive almost magical quality you get when Israeli sunlight hits the petals and makes them glow and shimmer against the sky.

This shot comes close.

I'm nearing the end of my big work project (or I would be if they didn't keep moving the flippin' goalposts, it's like chasing Brigadoon) so regular blogging shouldn't be too far away. Good thing too, because my photosafari of the Christian holy sites last Friday yielded some very special images that I can't wait to share with you!
