Just a lone date palm. In my opinion this is the most beautiful tree in the Middle East. It needs lots of water but can resist high salinity. This is why many of them grow around the Dead Sea, where this pic was taken.

Hi Ori,
I agree with you that it is indeed a beautiful tree.It is one of my first memories from when I imigrated to Israel....you would immediately see them coming off the plane at Ben Gurion Airport.TFS and Tsom Kal.

Hola Ori,
Hermoso arbol y pov,

this would make a good text book picture talking about the trees in and around the Dead Sea . only thing I might do was to zoom out a little and place the tree on one side of the shot .. it would show the wide open space more ..
