French term or phrase:ombres portées noires
"Sous un ciel d’un bleu impossible et un soleil sûrement né d’une palette magique, il y avait une place de toutes les couleurs, la place Sidi Baïan, bordée par des arbres d’un vert flamboyant et ***d’ombres portées noires***."
I've got "shadows worn black" but maybe I've misunderstood, and I welcome alternate suggestions.
(Also if anybody could tell me what country or city the text is about I would be grateful, the client hasn't given me much to go on as yet.)
