Here is another image I took while crossing West Bank in Palestine. This area between Jordan River and the mountains of Judea desert is full of cultivated areas.

Aqui temos outra imagem tomada durante minha travessia da Cisjordânia, região da Palestina. Esta área entre o Rio Jordão e as montanhas do Deserto da Judeia apresentam várias plantações.

Hi Jorge,very nice capture another time,from the bus i think but made with very good sharpness. A nice attempt to give a touch of green with the palm plantations in this desertic area,useful and interesting post. Have a nice evening and thanks,Luciano

Hello Jorge
Fascinating scene with the white landscape and the perfectly in long rows planted trees. A remarkable image with the pale colours below the blue sky.
Important picture, well done.
Have a good Sunday, Groet Rob

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

Bonjour, cher Jorge,
C'est une très belle image avec ces petits palmiers bien alignés et formant des formes géométriques étonnantes.
C'est vraiment très beau.

Hello Jorge
It's fascinating to see the palms growing in the desert. They create fine green patterns in the totally grey and light brown and very arid environment. If you had made a basic treatment of the photo the colours could have been so much brighter.
Kind regards,

Hello Jorge,
The landscape looks so barren, so it's nice to see that there are some young palm trees that can grow here nonetheless. The shapes of the mountains are beautiful too. Very well captured and composed.

Hello Jorge,

Your picture shows us clear that also in the desert can become cultivated trees.
Very sharp and clear taken.
An excellent composition and pleasant presentation.
Very well done, TFS.

Have a nice day,

Hello Jorge,
I hope there will be sufficient water for the irrigation.
It is a wonderful initiative to bring life back into the desert.
Best regards, Paul

Oi Jorge!
Outra foto interessante que mostra bem o caráter desértico dessa região e das possibilidades de cultivo de vegetais nessas condições adversas!
Bela foto!

Hi Jorge
interesting to see these views we don't get to see often from this part of the World. Looks very deserted and unforgiven.
strange to see such plantlife here. thanks for this one

Hi Jorge

Good shot of the date palm orchard & irrigation system. The greenery is in stark contrast to the bare eroded moonscape of the desert. Nice sharpness too.

Hello Jorge,
Here is another testimony to the hard working farmers of Israel, making the desert bloom. I can see the "power cords" for the trees (those hoses that deliver drip-irrigation).
I am uploading an auto-smart-fixed version of this photo to the workshop. As I said before, since you started this series, your photos have lacked contrast and saturation. I don't know if it is a new screen that is set too dark, a new camera or just your preference.
