This is a very rare, almost extinct, special species of oak tree on the island of Rhodes at least! It is standing there, on Ataviros, for more than 1000 years as one among few witness of a totally different flora at this specific place of Mediterranean basin.

Thank you all for your votes and your comments on my last upload! All are very much appreciated!

Regards,
George

What an amazing tree, George, to think it has stood the forces of nature for so long and yet still survives. I like the presentation of V.1 very much. Carol

A fascinating old tree, gnarled by the passage of the years and weather: if only it could talk, what a span of history it could relate.
Like both presentations, with the toning in V 1 so appropriate to the subject, and good to see the original in V 2.

George I have to say sepia does work, but V2 in colour is my winner

Terrific images and interesting narrative, George.
V1 is stunning in B&W / sepia but I love the colours in V2.
