WordPress has a Weekly Photo Challenge and this week the subject is BIG so I’m submitting a photo. BIG is not what comes to mind when you think of Israel, the country is very small, about the size of New Jersey and whether it is a lake, a river, a canyon or a mountain it’s not very BIG. The photo was taken on a hike – the young man under the BIG rock is our youngest, AdirChai. If you think you know where the photo was taken leave a comment below; at the end of the week I’ll post the answer so check back.
In the winter during the rainy season, there are flash floods in desert areas and the water is able to move BIG stones which can then get lodged between the walls of the canyon. The water fills depressions in the floor of the canyon so on this hike you have to swim across pools of water. Make sure to put your camera (I brought along a smaller one), car key and cell phone in a watertight container so they won’t get wet.

The technical details – the photo was taken with a Lumix (point and shoot) digital camera on March 26 (ISO 80, 9.7mm, F3.9 at 1/500 sec).
