Olive Tree


It's really hard to take a good picture of an olive tree. Well, I find it difficult! The leaves are so silvery and shimmery. All my photos end up looking like a silvery-green blur. I find this frustrating because olive trees are such a fundamental element in the Molfettan landscape.
I think this may be my best attempt so far.

I think you did a wonderful job, it's a gorgeous shot, totally caught my eye from the portal pic! I've never seen an olive tree except on Under The Tuscan Sun, which is one of my favorite movies, makes me want to pick up and move to Italy!

Dog Painting is unique and perfect gifts for a person of any age. As the time passes and painting will become old and old, the attachment increases

The sky compliments the silvery leaves. Olive oil is a necessity in our kitchen.

olive trees are fundamental to our own landscape too, and you're right, i find it difficult to photograph them and get the colours right

And it is an origional picture! I have become a lover of olive oil, completely stopped with butter, I guess that will be a benefit for my health. Regards from Marcel

You would be amiss if you didn't capture the beautiful trees. How about those very old trunks in old farms, still producing excellent fruit? You did the olive branches justice!
