IMAGES FROM THE DESERT

We went for a long melancholic drive through the hot and bone dry arid Negev Desert this weekend - and we found beautiful views with muted colors...
 A lone tree under the cloudless sky...
A sweet bird on thorny branches...
Stepping out of the car getting engulfed by the immense heat, the soul gets calm, drained and cleaned of worries and filled with quietness... - hm and instant yearning for the air condition in the vehicle... :-)

Sehr schöne und stimmungsvolle Bilder von einer mir fremden Welt! Wir haben hier Altweibersommer wie aus dem Bilderbuch, genau das Gegenteil zu Deinen Bildern. Deine Worte beschreiben aber genau das, was auch ich beim Wandern hier empfunden habe.
Stille und befreite Grüße

What an amazing place the Negev Desert appears to be...soft colours yet harsh light. I suppose it gets quite cold there at night. I wonder where the bird shelters then? Haunting pix Yael...xxx

What amazing photos! I can imagine the heat calming the soul. Now that I live in a warmer climate I am experiencing much more calm in my life. Then again, coming from NYC, any environment would probably make me more relaxed. Lol!

Amazing, and what a special light in the photos. The desert looks very quiet, and I'm sure it's a hot place.
Love the last photo with the bird :)

Hope you have a good new week, Yael!

That looks like the perfect place for serenity. Minus the heat, of course.

Beautiful photos of the desert.
Last week we drove up through the Mojave Desert and it reminds me of "your" desert. There were lots of Joshua trees and miles and miles of wilderness. I was happy to get back to our green trees and ocean!

Diese Bilder aus der Wüste sind wunderschön, ich bin selber schon einmal in der Wüste gewesen und war erstaunt wieviele Arten von braun/ beige/ gelb es gibt, das war sehr spannend und fesselnd.

Danke für Deinen Besuch und Kommentar auf meinem Blog, so hatte ich Anlaß einen neuen Blog, Deinen, kennen zu lernen.
Liebe Grüße
Teresa
