Leiria, Portugal

That tree is the sole survivor from the summer fires that year after year devastated those hills and also the forests of the entire country, until nothing more remains than low height bushes.
The last horizon line is the sea at about 20 Km. In that coast we can enjoy the view of magnificent sunsets that I tryed to capture with my camera and post here.
But there, in those hills, not far from my home, the clouds and sunsets give us extraordinary colorful skies, even more beautiful. It's a pity that I only have this tree to compose the photos... :-((

Latest news: The tree died, there is no tree, anymore!
