Sunrise over Mount Sinai

After the Easter service at St Catherine's Monastery, nestled in the foothills of Mount Sinai, there is a mass pilgrimage up the mountain where Moses received the ten commandments. The service finishes at around 2 in the morning, and after more than 4 hours scrambling up the mountain, the warmth of sunrise is extremely welcome!
