Good informative note in this Serie and a nice post. I like the way you capture the Recolter and Palms in a silhouette effect. The colors are great and the contrasting light is good. Excelent perspective and enquadrement view. Very graphic composition. Congratulations and I will see also another of this Serie that remember my voyage in this area.
