The River of Fog in the Mountains of Jerusalem - Finally!!

March 04, 2020  •  Leave a Comment

I've been dreaming to catch that powerful scene of the valley full with fog for several years. Seeing it with some fog is not so rare - in the right season and conditions, but getting a river-like event is something else entirely. The first image on this post shows the valley with little fog - but with a beautiful golden sunrise to make up for it.

Now, landscape photography is planned more often than not. But on this specific occasion - this photo was a matter of pure luck. I did expect some fog in the valleys, but planned on a different viewpoint - one that's closer to my home. However, taking a wrong turn resulted in getting to the mountains closer to a different viewpoint than I have planned... I was furious with myself, until I started to see the white edges over the valley. My heart was racing... but nothing prepared me for that magnificent sight, as I got to the viewpoint.

Thick fog hangs in the valley around sunrise. The fog continued to flow like a river for a long hour, before it dissipated.

Proportions: 2:3
Recommended print size: 120cm (47") long @ viewing distance of 1.5m (5').
So, dreams do come true, and sometimes they do it in the most spontaneous way possible. I hope yours come true too!

As always - if you'd like a print of Israeli Landscape hung on your walls, this new image is available internationally in Israel and the US. If you wish to have it printed and live elsewhere - don't hesitate to contact me!
