Israel-Gaza border January 4, 2009

I have hunted around for a while trying to get the name of the person who took this photo, because I think it is quite simply stunning. The only name I have found associated with it is Yannis Behrakis.

This picture was taken during the height of all the turmoil in the Gaza War and the red setting sun is very symbolic. The term that comes to mind when I see this is ‘Tragic beauty”. I find it very moving that such a stunning photo can be taken in the midst of so much horror and violence.

This blog is a collection of photos I have found around the internet. From famous battles, great sporting moments or just anything I find to be thought provoking. I do not take credit for any of the photos and any uncredited photos are because I have been unable to find the photographer/artist. Enjoy :) Mirror Eyes - Blogged
