March 2014: Trip to Israel - Dead Sea

A Day long trip to the Dead Sea brought us close to waterfalls, ibexes, hyrax (closest relative of an elephant) and lots of amazing light effects above the colorful desert and the deepest hypersaline lake in the world.

March 2014: Trip to Israel - Jerusalem

A wet and rather cold trip to Israel stated in Jerusalem - with many people, cats and wonderful guides.
Super #clouds in #Jerusalem
I looked at the city from rooftops, between market stalls, under centuries of history and inside buildings and churches.

We went into abandoned village of Lifta and spent afternoon looking at glorious sky above trees growing from most of the buildings standing on terraced hills.  March 2014: Israel - Jerusalem, Lifta

February 2014: Meeting with a Sketching Friend
I did many many pages of sketches in my little pocket moleskine book on that day and most of them are in the recycling bin. But I had to keep something for the record - so here it is - my best shot :) And here is how Suhita saw me on that day :)

It was a very quiet, silver forest of "not yet spring" - even though everything is in bloom outside of it, it's still wintery. And then I saw this colorful log!
