pic of the week

Rowing on the Yarkon River is a beautiful and relaxing pastime at any time of the year, but in the fall it takes on a special character as the trees begin to turn red and yellow.

The Yarkon hasn’t always had such good press. Heavily polluted in the 1990s, a huge amount of work has been done to clean up the river and make it habitable for wildlife again.
Today the park along the banks of the river is one of the largest green lungs for Tel Aviv, and is popular with local residents who go there to enjoy all sorts of leisure activities.

This week’s photograph was taken by Anna Kaplan/Flash90.
