Date palms against a beautiful blue sky has to be a firm favourite scene/look of mine.
I've liked this for years :)

It's actually quite common to see the date palms in shopping center parking lots planted like this...they're
all the same.

Then it must have been your photographic skill at picking the right angle!
I can see why it would be used again and is most effective eye candy.

I just lucked out with the lighting conditions this photographic skill involved. lol.

These tall date palms are trucked in from the desert and used in many landscaped shopping centers because of their extreme drought tolerance.
