|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|Crataegus siniaca (Sinai Hawthorn) is a unique tree. In our area it is a relic of colder times, remaining in Mt Hermon, Higher Golan Heights and Sinai Highlands (Egypt). the brown patches on the branches, seen also in the picture, are a good way to identify it.|

Hope you are doing fine. I am sorry that I miss commenting on your photos and let me admit, I do sure feel a shade guilty.....you know why....it is because of your contribution which is priceless and unmatched.You excel them all and you deserve all the praise in the world. It is a solid, solid research work......a highly authentic effort to trace these plants and to identify and post them here. Great job!
I really enjoyed both these photos of the Sinai Hawthorn, lovely plant, this shot is exquisite!
Thanks a lot for sharing, take care,

What an interesting shot of this particular species of tree from your region. The bark is very pretty with it's patches of cinnamon colored bark and the red fruit reminds me of our crab apples here in the states. Sharply focused and showing wonderful DOF. Exposure is perfect. Well done!!
