A Foggy Skywatch!

The weather this week has been downright wacky - we went from cold and rainy, to practically snowing, to summery short sleeves weather, and now it's getting cold and rainy again. Did I mention that this was all in one week? Ah, winter in Israel :)

Anyway, I happened to be in Jerusalem this week, taking a safety course for work. More photos of the beautiful hotel where the course was hosted are scheduled to be posted soon... but in the meantime, check out this crazy fog that I found out the window of the hotel, this Wednesday!
Hmm, it looked much more impressive in person...
That thing poking through the fog on the left is the Herodion, or apparently Herodium, according to Wikipedia. It's around 2000 years old, which qualifies as somewhat old in Israel :)

Anyway, for more sky-oriented photography from all over the world, go check out Skywatch Friday right now! It's well worth the click - have fun! And have a great weekend, everyone!
