Sunday had the opportunity to be at the Shrine of the Bab for over an hour near sunset.
This has been one of the coolest weeks here in Haifa since last May.
And Sunday evening was one of the most perfect evenings so far…warm but not hot, balmy actually, but with a slight breeze. There was very little noise from the streets below, and only a little bit of jackals calling; the intoxicating scent of jasmine and frangipani blossoms wafted through the colonnades.
These photos were taken on the western side of the Shrine, and tho they do not have the same quality as a day time photo, they show different aspects of the beauty of the architecture.
The Greatest Name symbol in the southwest corner of the colonnades.
Then walked up the Terraces through the dusk filled gardens to the sounds of chirping cicadas.
