On the trail towards the Roman-Villa, located on the southern slops of Mt. Carmel, we saw this young bikers.
The small forest around was very verdant and chrming, here I taken the Butterfly photo, and if you want to see the most common animal found there - than look at the attached WS...

Before reading the Aifa weather a few moments ago, I thought they suffered of poor vegetation due to intense heat!
So this verdant scenery seems a paradise for sporty people and for... photographers!
A breath of fresh air in your gallery!

I guess I'm very naive when it comes to the topography of Israel. Didn't expect to see green forest. Nicely captured and a good background for those bike riders. Great lighting and good details. Well done, tfs.

The bike ride is one of my favorite hobbies. Whenever I have the luxury of time I take my bike and I ride. The kids seem to enjoy the ride and beautiful weather. Wonderful moment.
Have a nice weekend,

Are you one of the cyclists? Just kidding. A nice dirt path taking the viewer into the dense woods with green vegetation. Looks like a very beautiful and bright day for the adventure. I like the colored clothes the bikers are wearing and assembled for some sort of discussion.

It appears that this adult has his hands full with so many youngsters to organise, but what a wonderful opportunity to learn cycling skills without fear of traffic.
The stony path makes a fine lead towards the cyclists in the m/g. You have good contrasts of light and shade and a wonderful, natural frame of verdant trees.
My warm regards,

Hello Ike, How have you been? I like this picture of the bicylists on this gravel trail with the surrounding forests. Quite a departure from some of your shots of the city. This certainly gives one a different view of Israel. Very nicely presented. Have a good weekend. Regards. Roger

Your workshop picture is extraordinarily with the cow middle of the forest, in Belgium see we this never, but I've again anything learned.
Biking on these road is very dangerous but perhaps pleasant middle through the nature.
Natural colors and good composition
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice weekend,

The length of the dirt road is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the action of the cyclists. The morning light is enhancing the colors. Have a nice day.

I myself am an avid biker, and I enjoy that a rising generation of our successors. Very nice is the off-road biking trip. Great reportage photography.

Hello dear Ike
This looks like a great place to have a walk, with Roman ruins abundant and the added bonus of those lovely cows. The light looks very strong and the colours a little faded, which is maybe a situation where you migt want to under-expose a little and increase the contrast and saturation saturation. A good shot and the Workshop made me smile :)

Good morning Ike,
nice the snapshot with the group of the young bikers to are ready to take their training in this earthy road.I like the side greenery as the trees too making the image more imposing.
Have a good Sunday,danos

Intéressante prise de vue où les jeunes semblent s'en donner à coeur joie dans ce magnifique sentier. Bel espace vert et beau jeu de couleurs.
Félicitations et bonne soirée,

nice scenery with many green around the dusty road. nice inclusion of people in the compo.
PS: yesterday I used my cell phone to write a critic about your work, quality of the text was bad, I couldn't deal with the machine, I was writing in english and the machine correcting the text to portuguese... haha.

Un vrai plaisir de balade en pleine nature, un paysage verdoyant, le sol de terre, j'aime l'image en WS, assez amusante a voir
ricardomattos (7865) 2013-09-21 8:17
Nice colors and a nice composition. Sharpness and lights well managed.
kato (11630) 2014-02-24 18:16
You're capturing well this place and bikers by a good angle and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the pastoral spectacle which there are many young bikers in mountain road with slope and the surrounding the green nature. It's good at color contrast between the road, green and blue sky. And, the shadow projected to the road draws out a good effect.

Ike, so very similar to the suburbs of Athens on the North side...there is a beautiful mountain there where I grew up and I used to take paths like this and walk endlessly enjoying the wild life and the many trees and flowers...
a very nice natural picture!
ChrisJ (117201) 2015-07-14 5:30
The fg red earth contrasts well against the blue sky to give a nice warm cold color contrast. The cyclists animate the scene. Good sharpness and saturation. The long side shadows from the left add a graphic element. Tfs.

This is a delightful photo of a dirt road through the forest with colorful bikers decorating the frame. Now I wish I were riding my mountain bike here.
