Photographer's Note

Maybe my friend and TE member Peter Boehringer shouldn't have fed my ego so much in his post of the American cousin of this tree, as I have a fascination for this kind of tree and a bunch of photos featuring them and now I got an even stronger motivation for posting some of them, risking to become the guy of those boring strange twisted trees. :D

I would prefer posting one with the whole tree, but I am too tired to select and prepare another one and this one was already on post queue.

This is one of the rare ocasions that I login into TE practically only to post a photo, but I am quite uninspired today for writing critiques and I only hope you forgive me this time.

Not counting the landscapes where they appear also, this is my fifth post of a cork oak and the second of this particular tree. You can see the others posts on this theme of mine. On the this other post you can find more detailed notes on the tree and its economic importance.
