Jaffa On Ice
Photograph - Photography
a flat winter sea that looks almost as ice, touching the old city of Jaffa at the blue and red sunset hour,
Taken from the most south beach of Tel Aviv, overlooking the old city of Jaffa and the entrance to its famous historic port. Its the red blue sunset hour with a moon above observing the sunset scene and lightening the hill and gardens of old Jaffa.
The old city is rising up from the sea like a fortress on a hill, facing and making its mark against the waves of the Mediterranean sea.
Jaffa has always served as a port city for pilgrims heading to Jerusalem and the old port of Jaffa claims to be the oldest port in the world, mentioned several times in the bible and its history is spanning over 3000 years.
Many legends are related to Jaffa from the story of Jonah and the whale, Greek legends of the beautiful Andromeda, and its foundation by Japhet, the son of Noah, captain of one of the most famous arks in history.
Some 3000 years ago Jaffa served Egyptian and Phoenician sailors for construction of King Solomons Temple and for trade of cedars from Lebanon.
The old city of Jaffa is holding today numerous art galleries, the old port and a lighthouse, a beautiful garden on top of the hill, some cool restaurants and cafes.
