Haifa at Night

Here is a second shot I took just after yesterdays cruise ship post, another hand held night shot. Top right you can just make out the lights of the Bahai Gardens.

 

 

Here is the Bahai Gardens the day before,The Bahá’í Gardens in Haifa comprise a staircase of nineteen terraces extending all the way up the northern slope of Mount Carmel. The geometry of the complex is built around the axis connecting it with the City of ‘Akko, which also has great historical and sacred significance for Bahá’ís. At its heart stands the golden-domed Shrine of the Báb, which is the resting place of the Prophet-Herald of the Bahá’í Faith. I still have not walked through the gardens, but next time im in Haifa, it’s a must.

 

Top right in this shot is the cruise ship.

  3. Not sure where you took the Haifa shots from; mine are from Yaffo. My B’Hai Gardens pix are from the other end, the main gate looking up. It’s quite nice seeing the opposite view. Evocative view of the port.

  5. Awesome shots Mark. I love the nightscape and the way you’ve captured the gardens really is a nice perspective. I’ve walked through those gardens and you should really make a point to visit the next time you’re there. It is gorgeous.
