Photographer's Note

Another winter view of the green fields of Alentejo and, of course, the inevitable cork oaks.

I wish that the definition was better and the sky more blue, but even so, I like it enough to post it and see if that is only for sentimental reasons.

I hesitated posting another one that I put on a WS.

This land is used mainly to graze sheep and goats. The region is famous for its cheese made with the milk of those animals, which eat mostly, if not exclusively, grass and not those artificial food so widely used these days. Every 8 to 10 years, the owners of the land earn a considerable sum of money (at least compared with their average) by selling cork, which is the rind of those trees (cork oaks) that are seen on the photo.

I'll be away this weekend, so please don't get upset by not retribute your critiques. :-) I haven't done much critiques on these last days, so I have to see if I catch up next week. :-)
