Haifa from Mt. Carmel.
As noted before Haifa is the most sacred to the Baha'i faith.
The building half round on right is the Baha'i centre for the Study of the Sacred Texts, and the rectangular building in the middle is the Universal House of Justice, centre of the Bahá'í covenant, with 60 arches façade (the arches are not visible on picture). The Golden dome Shrine on left. Also but not visible is the building of International Archives ( that looks similar to Athens Acropolis).
The area of the buildings and garden of the Baha'i complex stretch from tops of the Mt. Carmel down to lower town where the German-Colony district on Ben-Gurion blvd.
The big grey edifice near the port is the Dagon granary.
Enhanced saturation due to bright daylight.
Location of the shrine: 32.8146, 34.9873

An interesting and useful note to accompany this splendid city panorama. I like the colour contrasts and the excellent detail to be observed.

The downward point of view is giving depth to the composition. Ity is also showing showing the details and colors of the buildings of this area of Haifa. The good luminosity is enhancing the colors. Have a nice day.

Hello Ike, very nice shot here, i love the landscape. Good high POV allowing to see far in the distance. I like the diagonal also, the overall composition.

Tanto verde e tanto azzurro a colorare la tua composizione,
un caro saluto

you are adding a very interesting impression to the gallery of images of this modern town. The composition is excellent and the management of the difficult light outstanding. This is a wonderful lesson in geography, my compliments!

I could just sit on this hill all day and enjoy the beautiful panoramic view of this city. Nice capture of those architectures. Good lighting and dof with nice details. Well done, tfs.
ourania (44254) 2012-11-03 11:51
we learn a lot about Haifa from this photo and point of view. It looks like a beautiful seaside city and it must be interesting and lovely to wander in its streets and along the seafront. (It's only the granary that doesn't look attractive.) The light is very strong because you probably opted for vivid colours and clarity all over the view. I love the sense of depth, the colours and atmosphere. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great evening,
danos (96688) 2012-11-03 13:08

Hello dear Ike
A beautiful bird's eye of this lovely city. Everything looks so well-planned out, so clean and immaculate. The Bahaía Temple is wonderful, we have one in Sydney too, which has a similar design. Lovely colours and great depth.

A splendid view of the city, which looks very nice with a lot of vegetation between the buildings, great view of the harbor in the background, I like the diagonal gives the hill in the foreground, with its many trees and shrubs.
A colorful dream, in which the blue sea adds its bonus, superb sharpness and brightness.
Good Sunday afternoon.
jemaflor (95957) 2012-11-04 12:17
Good pov above the town, interesting photo with all these monument and buildings, nice light and green fg.

A magnificent view of the hills on the modern port and modern city Haifa. Excellent color contrast between the green hills, dazzling white and blue of the sea. image I really like.
הצהריים טובים. נוף נהדר של ההרים, בנמל המודרני והמודרנית העיר חיפה. ניגוד צבעים מצוין בין הגבעות הירוקות, מסנוור הלבנות והכחולות של הים. תמונה שאני מאוד אוהב. .
papagolf21 (99586) 2012-11-05 8:19
Bonsoir, cher Ike,
Magnifique vue plongeante sur la ville. Difficile de trouver meilleur emplacement pour donner toute la splendeur de ce lieu historique.
Un pur régal.
UlfE (14641) 2012-11-05 10:22
Very nice panoramic view of the city. Excellent sharpness and detail. Also a really fine composition with the wooden hills in the foreground and the blue sea in the background. TFS and have a fine week!
josepmarin (58357) 2012-11-06 8:34
the sight from this high POV is fantastic, and offers us a beautiful panorama of the city, with a great chromatic contrast between its architecture, the green vegetation, and the intense blue of the sea.
The ensemble have a good graphical balance, has a nice light and a few managed-well colours.
It is a splendid composition.
gildasjan (43442) 2012-11-06 10:20
Un bon point de vue,un bon rendu des couleurs et une image soigneusement cadrée pour cette vue de Haifa.

Ola Ike ,
Bela a visão deste Mt. Carmel para esta cidade junto do mar , bons detalhes e cores, boa luz , parabéns!!
Um abraço Gonçalo
maria-v1981 (10932) 2012-11-07 7:18
This is lovely, a very beautiful view from your hometown. The perspective is exquisite with the slightly diagonal main road pointing towards the harbor, and the beautifully captured buildings among which the white one building stands out. Colors are great, too.
Have a nice evening,
mkamionka (35788) 2012-11-07 11:37
Mt. Carmel sounds familiar to me. It is interesting to see it in the photo.
I am glad that you came back to photos from your country. Vacations are fantastic but usually showing local areas we can share so many unknown treasures.
Nice view from above. The panorama includes several interesting structures.
Very well done,
COSTANTINO (64130) 2012-11-07 22:09
spectacular view from an excellent chosen
point of view,I like the greenery
in the foreground making a particular
framing and the buildings down there
wonderful depth and perspective
in a few words a worthseeing
macjake (66972) 2012-11-08 14:22
Again, as i mentioned to you before, its great to see Isreal from this vantage point - we don't usually get alot of photo's from this country...imagine if you were not on TE! there would be even less!
I don't recognize any of the buildings, but there certainly seems to be a huge mix of styles.
And we can clearly see the Port city influence, with the large tankers sitting and waiting to load or unload their cargo.
clic (16885) 2012-11-09 12:42
It's very difficult to imagine the high temperatures (over 40 degrees in July and August) on Haifa; its located so close to the sea!
This view deprived of haze shows the best of it, beautifully set between blue and green.
daddo (26534) 2012-11-18 4:44
Shalom Ike. The first thing to notice is the incredible light and the blueness of the sea.Lovely POV which allows us to examine many interesting details. it looks like a prosperous city. Regards. Klaudio.

After seeing so many places named after Mt. Carmel, it is so good to see the real McCoy for a change. Good colors and exposure, nice composition. TFS.
