Last Year favorites

2021 will be remembered as another year of living alongside Covid-19. No closures though and partial return to routine, but also without trips abroad and quite a few plans that have been postponed for now.

The positive side of this matter is many local trips and photography, discovering some new locations I did not know, and returning to familiar places, some of which I have not visited in years. Overall I can say that 2021 was definitely a productive photography year.


In the winters of the beginning and the end of the year I have done several forests photography sessions. I definitely plan to to do more of soon. Forests are magical in winter and I highly recommend everyone to take a walk in your near by forest on a winter day and enjoy this magic too.

In between there were a few other new and old locations that I really love. Some of them I have never visited, others havn't visited for years.

Of course there were seascape photos, many of them. This is one of my favorite themes and I took advantage of the year to go back to few of my favorite beaches that each time look a little different and are never boring.

Crazy November. If you're looking for a spectacular sunset here, November is the month to be outdoors. Palmachim Beach.


How is it possible without a few sleepless nights with good friends, food, wine and ... even some photos. Already looking forward for next milky way season.

That it for 2021. I had a lot of fun and will have fun again next year. Thanks to every one who took part in the experiences . There are lots of plans for 2022, just need to solve the math of putting them all in a limited free time. Nature is beautiful, please keep it. Have a great 2022 everyone.
