[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Coconut trees are very common in Sierra Leone and infact in the whole of West Africa.

The coconut fruit forms at the base of the palm fronds (leaves). One tree can produce up to 50 coconuts.

Coconut water is the juice of tender young coconuts and claimed to be one of the purest, most nutritious and wholesome beverages that nature has provided.

Coconut water is a natural isotonic. Perfect for rehydration, thirst quenching and quick recovery, coconut drinks make a perfect sports and fitness drinks. Personally,..I like it!!

Coconut palms reach 50 to 80 feet in height.

The coconut palm produces a crown of pinnately compound yellow-green leaves called fronds. Each frond reaches 15 to 17 feet in length.

Hi Hussein,
Nice lines of the branches all leading to the fruit. I was in Kenya and saw how the people climb this sheer trunk to cut the coconuts down and it was amazing.

You could perhaps write a bit of a story to go with your image.
