SkyWatch: Palm Trees

This photo could have been taken almost anywhere, but it was taken in the middle of the city of Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. These palm trees rise above the cityscape and allowed for a photo that could make one believe it was taken on a beach in paradise. Another shot from a moving car!

    I can almost feel a warm breeze; I guess I feel it when I see photos of palm trees.

    Wow, you have a different palm tree there from what we have here. This one seemed to have shorter palms. And I love the blue blue sky.
