Morning Glory on Mount Hermon-L001
Defiant Juniper at Sunrise-L002
A sleepless night camping in the arid high mountain Hermel region rewarded us with a wonderful sunrise. Serenity woke up with us during that sunrise. The first rains arrived that day... Could we ask for more ?

Beam of Hope-L005
Faded - L008
A peculiar misty dusk where all color seemed beautifully muted as I made my way by the magnanimous Jabal Al-Sheikh or Mount Hermon.

Fall Splendor in Tannourine Tahta - L014
Far and Away - L015BW
Man's reach has taken its toll on many regions in our beloved Lebanon. But not quite yet ! Among the snow-dressed arid highlands in the background, you feel the combined might and beauty of untamed nature vs. the frailty of mankind.
Breezy Spring Sunset - L016
Pondering upon a Snow-covered Field - L017
Breeze on Water Bloom - L022
It was a spectacular Spring day, when natural ponds were fresh with snow-melt clear waters and a soft yet rippling breeze flowed through the tiniest of white flowers blooming on algae... a blessing from mother nature.
Muscle Mountain - L031

Etching - L033
Sannine Mild Winter - L037
Desert Highland - L038
The harsh desert-like high mountain terrain seen here is actually a water super-well. Snow forms a thick blanket in winter, a lot of which is absorbed into the depths of the Western Lebanon mountain range making its way to springs. It is hard to imagine given the stark and dry scene, and a reminder that what you see is not always what you get.
Ammiq and the Sheikh
The significance of these marshes in Ammiq cannot be more emphasized. They provide a crucial pit-stop for breeding and food for millions of migratory birds, all under the grace of Jabal Al-Sheikh (aka Mount Hermon).
