The wind-beaten olive tree

A story behind: Many parts of Beira Interior region in central Portugal are flooded now. The water covered many deserted areas of this sparsely populated land.
During my late afternoon walk near the Lardosa village I spotted a small wind-beaten olive tree that resembled
so much a famous Van Gogh painting.
Enjoy !
