This is another area inside West Bank. In this area we can see many date palm trees plantation and you can see the typical desert in this area. I took this image inside a bus in movement.

Esta é outra área dentro da Cisjordânia. Nesta região existem muitas plantações de tamareiras e podemos ver uma área desértica ao fundo. Tirei esta foto com o ônibus em movimento.

Witaj Jorge!
Landscape makes impression.
I like POV and composition.
Nice delicate colours.
Well done.
Good weekend.

Bonjour, cher Jorge,
J'aime beaucoup cette composition avec cet effet panoramique.
L'image est belle avec cette palmeraie au premier plan et cette chaîne de montagnes arides en arrière-plan.
Très bien.

Hello Jorge,
While traveling through a desert it gives a fantastic feeling to arrive at an oasis.
In this case it's a date palm oasis.
It's so great to find life in an almost uninhabitable area.
Beautiful strong contrast.
Best regards, Paul

Hi Jorge
A barren desert landscape, hostile and rugged with the textured formation grabs the eye. This conveys the feeling of vast space and its unique features, i feel that the green palm groves counter balances superbly and soothes the overall view effectively. Well done, TFS
Best regards

Ciao Jorge, fascinating landscape with beautiful palms, wonderful natural colors, excellent clarity and splendid light, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Hello Jorge,

I can imagine the pleasure, maybe relief, of coming into an oasis when travelling through a desert. The date palms make an excellent contrast in colours and textures with the surrounding area and, though on a bus, you have composed the scene well.
Don't you feel this would be a great place to excavate? It reminds me of the Valley of the Kings!

Have a lovely w/e,
Bev :-)

Hello Jorge,
The large palm trees make a very nice pattern together and the smooth shapes of the hills in the background look quite impressive too. Excellent photo, well composed too.

Hi Jorge,

Nice repetition of the date palms with good sharpness and excellent color and saturation. I might have added more shadows. The deeply eroded hillsides make a superb backdrop. Tfs!

Hello Jorge,
What a contrast between the verdant palm groves and the bone-dry desert! The troubles Israelis go to for agriculture are quite commendable.
