Russian Monastery Sunrise by pdulis

Russian Monastery Sunrise

I really wanted to get a sunrise photo of this Russian Orthodox monastery which is located in a small, quaint village with the most picturesque views. Its beautiful golden "onion style" domes dominate the landscape of Ein Kerem with the rolling Judean hills in the background. We were very fortunate to get into the compound which was locked. We pulled up to the gate with our Land Rover SUV and I guess they thought we were part of the work crew - so in we went :)
Awesome shot, beautiful monastery and landscape

This is gorgeous! I'm not familiar with this area of the Judean Wilderness and with all that vegetation it doesn't even look like it!
