Golden sun sets over a mountain
The closer you are to the sun, the greater the shine.
As the sun sets over Mount Eitan in eastern Israel, the abundant mountain foliage takes on a golden glow, reveling in the last light of the day. The hazy light makes the scene look almost dreamlike, as though the photographer willed the giant sun into being the perfect light source for the moment.
Mount Eitan is a popular bike trail stop, so if you get the urge to see this scene beyond a computer screen, make sure to bike until the sun goes down.
