Photographer's Note

A Eucalyptus Park on the south-east side of the Yarkon-river-park.
Taken from a man-made-hill called Napoleon's Hill: There is an urban-tale that it was mounted by Napoleon's battalions in middle-ages , but no real evidence found, not much of a target almost nothing to conquere on that time, it was a marsh land until some 120 years ago.
That is why the Eucalyptus planted here: This Australian nature's tree is capable of drying-out swamps and excessive standing-water .
Nowadays, there is not much rain in Israel , almost in every year , and those trees are in contradiction to it's purpose.
The struture on left is a modern architected apartment-house.
I'll post shortly a picture taken inside the Eucalyptus forest.
