A very interesting image with some fascinating details captured. This must have been a delightful sight looking at this tree in the middel of the Anti-Atlas mountain range covered with beautiful big yellow fruits. Great viewpoint with a pleasant composition. The rocks around the tree adds extra character to this great landscape. Thanks for sharing this Argan tree which I have not seen, neither heard of before. Best regards.
