On January 2013 Israel experienced some fierce weather. It was one of those storms you see once in twenty years or so... Entire neighborhoods got flooded, cars swept away and homes were destroyed. One of the rarest sights was of Ayalon Highway - one of the major traffic routes in Israel.
The Ayalon River (probably a large stream by other countries' standards...), which runs side-by-side with the highway, is almost dry most of the year. Due to the fierce rains it overflowed, and flooded the highway. The image, showing the muddy water flowing in the Ayalon canal, was taken from the Hashalom bridge that crosses the highway.
