Dangerously Daydreaming

"All men dream, but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds, wake in the day to find that it was vanity: but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act on their dreams with open eyes, to make them possible." ~ T. E. Lawrence

Photo Fridays: Beginnings of a River

There has some ugly crud going around lately and it put me down for most of this week. I missed you guys! But I’m back up and at ’em with a photo for this wintry Friday.

Today’s photo is of the headwaters of the Jordan River in Israel. We got to hike out to this beautiful spot and I couldn’t have imagined a more lush place existed in such an arid climate. Next week I’ll be sharing more about that hike and our trip to Mount Hermon, Israel’s highest peak.

      It’s been over a week but J and I might finally be over the crud. [As I cross my fingers, knock on wood, and throw some salt over my shoulder] I’m so excited to hear how your weekend was!

    Beautiful place! I love the way you framed the shot through the trees. One of my favourite ways to shoot landscapes too

      After tromping through sand and the dry climate all day it was a welcome oasis. Almost reminded me of jungle hikes in Thailand. šŸ™‚
      I’ll have to take a peak at some of your photos, sounds like we’ve got a similar eye for landscapes!

    Wow! Is Mount Hermon where the Jordan originates?

      It is! As best I can tell, it’s fed by quite a few streams coming down from the Gollan Heights.
