We started the hike up the Masada around 5 in the morning when it was still pitch dark out. Despite me stopping every ten minutes to catch my breath, we still managed to get up to the top moments before the sunrise. Eating hummus and pita, we waited as the sky got brighter and brighter. When the sun finally came out, we were both quite in awe. And at that moment, I felt like the world was twice as big as I ever thought it was.

I took a bet with the roll of Fuji F-64D film I bought off my friend a few years back. It was my first time shooting with this film and there was no back-up plan as this was the only roll I shot on this hike. I was very pleasantly surprised with the results, particularly the unintended fine blue light streaks on some of the shots.
