The Lone Worshiper

This shot was taken during the historic snow storm that hit the Middle East in December 2013. The Western Wall in Jerusalem, the holiest site in Judaism, is usually crowded with worshipers and tourists alike. It was quite a sight to see only one dedicated man praying by the wall, not even holding an umbrella, in spite of the heavy snow.
