Flora of Israel

These were shot on a hiking trail about 5km south of Bet Shemesh. I went out for a hike just before daybreak.

The ground was wet, it had rained slightly overnight. I wanted to capture the luminescence of these plants. I tried a bunch of shots with a tripod with low shutter speeds – then just for a change, i pulled out my SB-28 and gave them a fill flash. Here’s the results. They seem to pop out of the image – like three dimensional.
