Hello Ori,
Great shot of these large Date Palm trees. Everything is in sharp focus and the exposure is perfect. Colors are well saturated and natural looking.
I remember seeing many of these beautiful trees while in Israel. I was surprised when our tour guide told us of its many uses. He said the entire tree from its seed, sap, leaves, fruit and wood are used in some manner. Thank you for showing us this important natural resource from your country.
