This photo was taken 8 years and 3 months ago during my visit of Haifa, Israel.
This is a night view to the famouse Baha'i Gardens.
Many Bahá'í holy places in Haifa and around Acre, Israel were inscribed on the World Heritage List in July 2008.
The Terraces of the Bahá'í Faith, also known as the Hanging Gardens of Haifa, are garden terraces around the Shrine of the Báb on Mount Carmel in Haifa, Israel. They are one of the most popular destinations for visitors to Israel. The architect is Fariborz Sahba from Iran, the structural engineers are Karban and Co. from Haifa.

We are neighbours, today!
I didn't know that you had been to Israel. Did you meet Ike? I saw him last year in Manchester, of all places!
It's a great night shot, with the headlights strongly placed and then the lit terraces creating illuminated steps up to the Hanging Gardens of Haifa. The negative space is as important as the features.
You look in dire peril of being run over by the advancing car!
Obviously, since we have recently met, nothing serious happened!
My warm regards,

I have never heard of this place so a pleasure to see this well lit dark shot. The headlights of the car are really suited to the mood of the photo

Bonsoir, cher Serghei,
Alors là, je dis bravo pour cette réalisation nocturne.
La qualité du sujet, de la mise en image.
Tout est bon, j'admire.

This is an unusual type of architecture to find in Israel. It looks like a combination of a pyramid on the bottom, and the Capitol Building on top. :-) That hill looks very tall and steep, too. I like the bit of street in the foreground, and the oncoming headlights.

This is a remarkable night photo of the Bahai Temple in Haifa. I've visited Haifa 5-6 times to meet with a physicist friend. The city has three levels but very good public transportation.

Beautiful view of the famous gardens and Bahai temple in Haifa. Wonderful night shot. Here it looks like a pyramid with the dome on top. When I was in Haifa many years ago, the gardens were not ready yet.
Have a nice day

Good morning Serghei,
Spectacular night shot with those impressive layers of garden. Perfect contrasts, well done!

An interesting building with a remarkable location. The many lights create a sense of action and excitement in the night and also balance the composition perfectly. The streetlights and the illuminated temple are nicely connected by the green lights lining the steep staircase. It's a well composed photo and it's perfectly exposed.

A splendid night time composition. The lights make a lovely lead-line towards the warmly illuminated dome. Very good technical realisation.
macjake (72555) 2017-02-27 4:43
well this is certainly different.
Never seen this view before of the Bahai gardens.
lovely night shot my friend, it worked out so well.
the structure up top is very clear and sharp, the lights up on the garden add another layer of interest too.
as do the trailing car lights. excellent darkened exposure.

I can't remember to have seen a night view of the Baha'i Temple before.
But also surrounded by the dark it looks magnificent although quite different from on pictures taken during the day.
Excellently exposed and a beautiful alternation of dark and white parts on the long staircase.
Best regards, Paul

I visited this place few months ago. nice this nocturne perspective, escaping from the usual classic sunny view.nice use of light and good view of the temple. I visited the temple bahai in delhi and I guess the temple there is much more beautiful, but the gardens in israel is much more beautiful those ones in india.

This is a terrific nocturnal photo of the Baha'i Gardens. I must confess, I would be scared to take a photo from the middle of the road in such traffic, your courage paid off.
PS. "Sunny Urals," he says! I thinks he is trying to rub it in that old winter hasn't left our neck of the woods.

A good nocturnal shot of Haifa with excellent sharpness and nice motion blur of the vehicles. I like the repetition of the palm trees & gates either side of the stairs, which add linear perspective leading to the domed building in the bg. Tfs!
