Storm Chasing

Storm Chasing

Rainy days have become something of an event in Israel, particularly during winter seasons that have been fairly  parched. In the Negev Desert, where intense rains can quickly cause flooding in dry riverbeds, this has created a renewed penchant for ‘flood chasing’, when adventurous Israelis head out to witness the rising rivers. These photos were taken by flood chasers last month, when heavy rains filled the dry riverbeds with water, turning them into lush ribbons of winter greenery.
