Hello Ori,
Very interesting landscape with this very arid soil and the presence of the tree which shows that life is able to develop almost everywhere.
Beautiful light, well managed by you. Interesting point of view chosen.
Kind regards

Hello Ori,
I've seen many your photos but this is admirable. You chose interesting composition of lonely tree, superb POV and light.

Hi Ori,
really nice composition. Excellent landscape.
Thanks for sharing,

Hi Ori,

Excellent composition and contrast of green tree on an arid landscape.

Regards. Ali

Good morning Ori,
it is a very nice and very pictorial landscape. you show here how a tree survived in a harsh environment. compositionaly you placed the tree in a perfect position. i am found also a philosophical massage here, in our society if some one can overcome the adverse situation they can reach the ultimate destination. thank you Ori for this nice picture.
best wishes,
P.S: my preference is to put name stamp on the right side bottom, because this is a weakest part of the picture. don't mind. have a nice day

Hello Ori,
A nice capture of this Pistacia in such a dry habitat. Its root system must be way down to absorb any moisture/water for its survival. Well composed & presented. TFS & regards.


Beautiful and interesting landscape Ori! Beautiful photo too!! Excellent composition, wonderful colours and very good sharpness!

Very beautiful combination of contrasting massive rocks, lonely tree, and deep-blue sky.

Well done!
