Sunsets of Palestine

It’s easy to lose sight of some of life’s simple pleasures when you’re mired in the politics of a land you’re forbidden to enter. But every now and again we deserve to be reminded of just how beautifully the sea sparkles in the Gaza Strip, or just how high the rainbows over the West Bank’s grassy hills can go, or just how easy it is to visualize the earthy way of life in villages wiped away in 1948.

  6. So beautiful and majestic – certainly serene
    Every photographer is very talented!

  7. There’s something magical about each and every photo of these. I consider myself, however, among the luckiest to have been able to witness and live the sunsets of over 20 years in Gaza and having never missed even one!
    I loved every photo yet each one of them broke my heart a little bit. I hope I’ll get to witness sunsets in every part in a free Palestine.

    Thanks Sami and every one else who took a photo. Looking forward for more!

  8. B.E.A.U.T.Y.
