Nature photos from Israel- longish post/many images
Posted By: Leya216, 03-19-2007, 05:26 AM

My nature photography class went on a 3 day shooting trip up north. All in all it was great. I was the only Pantax user amongst a see of Nikons. On the second day I also met 2 tourists. The first was a photography student from Amsterdam (who knows not the merits of Pentax) and an older doctor from London who loves taking pictures who invited me to get together with him if Iím in the area. It's always fun meeting new people. The view was also amazing. Unfortunately the first day was really windy which doesnít work so well with macro and the second day we had to alternate between sitting in the car during showers and then running out to take photos till the next shower. The 3rd day we had snow, The K10D worked without a flaw. Odlly so did the D70s and only one D200 shut down because of it. Talk about interesting photo weather. It was really interesting. Anyways I finished processing the photos, from about 500 I'm down to 64, most of them can be seen here- Northern Israel . All the photos currently posted on the site so far are with Pentax.
Anyways here are some photos:

Very nice photos, Leah. I especially like the orchard with backdrop of dark clouds.

6-10 are all greats. first five a bit seen-two-many-times-already. technically they are all very good though. 6 is my absolute favorite. i love the lines in the shot, almost symetrical, but getting away all the time

Leah,

You have some wonderful photos. I like the one with the blossoms in snow. Spring will come no matter what

Thanks!

It is the curse of the fish eye to bend the world so that we can never quite grasp it... Was that philosophical or what??
Thanks!

I really like the horizontal B&W. A couple of days ago I was printing some exhibit photos for my daughter that were taken last July in Israel. Quite a contrast between her shots of the Dead Sea and your pictures of snow.

Thanks Peter

Are those photos online anywhere? I'd be very interested in viewing them. Where are they being exhibited?

Bad typing. Should read "very large JCC".

What a small Jewish world...

My mom grew up in Stamford and I was actually just there (about 2 weeks ago) visiting my grandparents who still live there... . Had I known I could've probably caught the exhibit. Maybe I should see if they'll let me exhibit there... I'd love to show my photos somewhere...
