With spring firmly underway in Israel, the countryside is bursting with life and color.

This week’s picture of the week was taken by photographer Rebecca Kowalsky near her  her home.

“As a photographer I know that beautiful images can be created in faraway places but on the other hand – simple exquisite fineness can be captured outside our doorsteps,” Kowalsky told ISRAEL21c.

“This was about a 150 meter walk from my house – a place I love to walk to and photograph in the sun, with the spring growth (as seen here) in the rain, and in the fog.”

If you’ve got a photograph you’d like to feature on ISRAEL21c please send it in high resolution to info@israel21c.org. Every week we will choose the best one to feature on our pages.
