Photographer's Note

Not much to say, just another winter view of Alentejo, the region that occupies much of the South of Portugal.

Like John 'jmcl' observed, for most and you and even to myself, this isn't the typical winter view. I also feel it much more as Spring, but if I reflect a bit, we have plenty of "Spring days" like that, at least visually (when it is not raining and/or cloudy or foggy), but interestingly, it's frequent that sunny days in winter are also the coldest ones, but I guess it is very difficult to show cold in landscape views without snow or ice.

In Spring, those fields have a lot more flowers (in fact sometimes the green almost disappears under the mass of flowers) and the foliage of trees and bushes is much more light, because of the new leaves; and, of course, those trees that loose their leaves in Winter also get leaves in Spring. You can see that on my series "Well of the donkeys", "Spring landscape" and "May flowers" that are in this theme of mine.

I am aware that the photo isn't very good illustrating the issues discussed above, and the main reasons for posting it have nothing to do with that. I hesitated telling you what I like about it, but I prefer not influencing your appreciation.
