52 Week Photography Challenge – Week 2

Week 2: Landscape: Traditional

Being a Mediterranean country, many people are really surprised to find that Israel has at least 5 distinct climate zones. This past weekend we visited the Botanical Gardens at Hebrew University in Jerusalem and enjoyed a mini-autumn.

While we had missed the peak fall colors in the oak groves and most everything was dry and waiting for our winter rains, we were treated to the sound of dry leaves crunching underfoot.
