Q: uplaoding a Tiff photo

A: Do you know?

Photo license: © All rights reserved

The Tree of Life (Arabic:Shajarat al-Hayah) is a 400-year old mesquite tree in Bahrain which is considered a natural wonder. This unique tree stands alone in the desert about 1.2 miles (two kilometers) from the Jebel Dukhan.

The source of water for this tree still remains a mystery, because it stands in a place completely free of water whatsoever.

Trivia: It is mentioned in the movie "LA Story"


Note: Didn't have my tripod with me, tried my best to keep it steady especially being hand held at a low shutter speed.

Gotta remember to pack my tripod on a future trip ;-)
