Haifa horizons

Here are some images taken from Mount Carmel overlooking Haifa, taken on a crystal clear day earlier this week.

The photos look north towards the ancient port of Akko, and beyond that, to Lebanon. The landscaped gardens below are the Terraces of the Shrine of the Báb, holy to the Bahá’í faith. They extend a kilometre or so up the Mount, and are clearly maintained with great care. These images don’t do the view justice, but you get the idea…
