This photo of a majestic flock of migrating pelicans is titled "Morning" and was taken in 2016 by photographer Luis Curiel. It's part of an exhibit called "Passage to Israel" consisting of photos by 20 acclaimed photographers. The exhibit explores "the layered, soulful beauty of the land of Israel."

The photos include "a gorgeous montage of cobblestone streets and wineries, sculpture gardens and Bauhaus architecture, innovative interiors and verdant olive plantations," continues the website.

The photos will go on display tomorrow at the Anderson Contemporary Gallery in New York City. They'll continue on to Los Angeles, Palm Beach, Washington, D.C., Chicago, Toronto, London, Berlin and, of course, Jerusalem. But if you want a sneak peek ...
