Bonjour Ori,
J'ai découvert cet arbre lors d'une visite au Maroc mais je n'avais jamais vu ses fruits avant leur cueillette !!!
Excellente opposition des couleurs, sous une belle lumière et une bonne profondeur de champ, valorisant bien le sujet.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

Hello Ori,
Excellent capture of the argania fruits, with good sharpness and background. I could not manage a nice shot during my last journey in Morocco (they were green at that time, November). Cheers,

  • Great

Hi Ori,
how nice to see this fruits that never exist in my mind before.
Excellent view and lovely natural colours.
Something new for me!


Hi Ori, I have seen true Argania trees in other parts of Morocoo too, for example in some places in High Atlas Mts., however I think only cultivated (not in natural range of the species).
Usually when shooting plants, I don't like background of the sky (contrasts and strange look 'green on blue' to me) and I am trying do avoid and find some another bg if it is possible. Did you notice the same experience? But on this photo it looks good and low contrasts are just fine. Good job, regards.
