04.2007 the last portrait of an old survivor

Portugal accounts for 50% of the world cork harvest. Cork Oaks live about 150-250 years. Here you cannot legally cut down these beauties except for forest management felling of old, or unproductive. It's a protected species and unbelievable beautifull!! See the large versions of this and other works here!
