beautiful things i saw today: ancient olive tree

Puglia, Italy.  Home to 60 million live trees.  Producer of 40% of Italy's olive oil.  I know, this doesn't look like an olive tree.  It looks more like an oak tree.  That is because of it's age.  This magnificent beauty is probably 1,000 years old.  Some in the region are 2,000 years old.  Think about that for a minute.  That is during the time of the Bible!

Olive trees along the coast of the turquoise Adriatic really was a dazzling place!

Full write up of Puglia coming soon.
