Sinai Sunrise One

We celebrated the Divine Liturgy at midnight at the tiny chapel of Saints Galakteon and Episteme. Afterwards, I went a little ways down the path to photograph sunrise on Mount Sinai. When the holy mountain first emerges from the darkness, you can see a trail of lights as visitors make their way to the summit, with the stars still shining brightly overhead. (These are the first four of a total of sixteen photographs that I will be posting.)

    The most precious vivid heavenly beautiful photographs of a night at Mount Sinai with the stars still shining brightly.

    Have you or anyone else ever photographed the sun rising like this, but from Mount St. Catherine looking towards Mount Sinai?

      I have only climbed to the summit of Mount Saint Catherine about three times, and these were before I was able to purchase the camera and lenses I have now. I would welcome the opportunity to do so, but I also have responsibilities that keep me busy here. I will try to find the time.


    Spectacular photo Fr Justin!
    Psalm 19 1
    The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands. Day after day they pour forth speech; night after night they display knowledge. There is no speech or language where their voice is not heard.
