The prophet Isaiah envisioned a time when the land of Israel “will blossom abundantly” (Isaiah 35:2). As I drove through this valley in the north of Israel, I felt the truth of that promise in the present surrounding me.
The only way to emphasize the abundant rows of trees at the perfect angle was to climb to the top of my car, hauling my tripod and camera up with me. While exposing the frame, I remained completely still so as not to rock the car and ruin the shot. In this stillness by the fields, I felt I was capturing an eternal and miraculous moment in time.
