Photographer's Note

The climate of Israel ranges from tropical during the long summer months to temperate during the few months of winter. Summer and winter are the predominate seasons in Israel.

The winter season

Winter is Israel's rainy season, making it crucial to the nation's water supply, with no rainfall occurring during the summer months. A typical winter in Israel lasts from November to May, though shorter winters, resulting in drought years, are common. During the winter months rainfall varies from heavy in the northern and central regions of the country to light in the northern Negev region. Rainfall in the southern Negev is negligible.

Occasional snowfall occurs at higher elevations throughout the country during the winter months.
