AUTUMN COLORS IN ISRAEL - HUMBLE BUT BEAUTIFUL

 
As I have already mentioned we do not have flaming fall colors here in Israel. Our autumn can not be compared to the trees and forests in Europe or in America. What I saw in New England, Maine and Utah can scarcely be topped. And I remember very well the marvelous colors of fall - die Herbstfarben - in Germany. But we do have some gentle and sweet changing of the foliage at this time of the year, and the vine yards even excel, they surely rejoice, look!
And the hills at the Hermon display their beautiful fall foliage as well!

Oh--Yael--these are lovely! I love how these lone trees are bursting into flaming orange--it's a beautiful time of year! The photos are brilliant!

Das Weinlaub ist schon dramatisch. Man sollte damit gefüllte Weinblätter machen! Aber die schmecken sicher nicht mehr.

Beautiful autumn photos, and such an amazing colour combination on the grape vine leaves :)

Guten Morgen Yael,
es tut gut, diese schönen Bilder bei einer Tasse Kaffee genießen zu können. Die Färbung der Natur fasziniert doch immer wieder. Besonders die wunderschönen Blätter im 3.Bild haben es mir angetan. Dieses dunkle Rot ist ein toller Farbton.

Habt einen schönen Tag.
Liebe Grüße von 2 B's

The Autumn palette is my favorite of all palettes. Humble or otherwise, it is glorious in my mind!
