04-03-09 The Magic Olive Grove

04-03-09-the-magic-olive-grove My wife and I were out exploring the back roads of Corfu two summers ago. There are many olive groves on the island but there was something about this one that caused me to sop the car and take a few photos.

I've learned that olive trees can be hundreds of years old. I doubt that these are that old, though the rugged and gnarled nature of the trunks suggests that they are older than trees I am used to seeing in South Dakota.

I converted this photo to black and white because I think the tones make this picture much more interesting and mysterious.

Canon 5D 1/60s f/5.6 ISO320 28mm (lens unknown)
