A walk in a park

park viw zeiss bw 2.jpg


Being surrounded by houses, cars, noisy people, park seem like the only way close enough to get a little break from it. The one near me is like that. Even though it is almost in the very center and surrounded by all things human, it pretty quiet an peaceful. During the day there is not even many people there (I don't dare going the during the weekend).

From the edge of it, up on the hill you can see the town, boats and Lisbon on the other side. A pleasant view, but that's no what I went there for...

Tome to walk between the trees. Old pines and olive trees give nice shadow and mute the sounds. Not the birds though - they fly around and chirp from between the branches.

It all slows down... and you can see all the smallest things.

Moss started to grow on an old piece of branch. It's part of one of the very old olives. It was probably dead one anyway so it got trimmed.

Little lower tons of tiny mushrooms, grasses, and wildflower enjoy the shadow. I could spend hours (sometimes I do) shooting every single one of them. Just because they are there... not because they are different from each other. They all look almost the same :p

And here is something I did not expect to see. Right at the end of the walk as I was heading towards the exit I saw strange texture on the ground. Curiosity won - I got closer and it turned out that few trees were surrounded by thousands of wine bottle corks. What is the purpose of that? No clue. Especially they slowly they spread around and get damaged when the grass is moved around.

It surely looks cool though!

I have never heard of using corks that way. I wonder if they provide nutrition as they decompose. That's a lot of corks! I also wonder where they all came from. Cool photos

Beautiful pictures!
I think corks are used as mulch.
That is, they protect the ground near the tree from weeds, overheating and cooling.

I often visit the parks especially to relieve stress. It offers a nice environment to escape from the noise. Also, the black and white pictures are great. You did a great job, congratulations 😊

Hello dear friend @ewkaw good day
I love the location of the park, what a beautiful view you have from there, it is incredible what you have found, I have never seen so many corks together in one place. I would love to know what the purpose of this is
enjoy the weekend

I never seen any place with so much cork. Thanks for sharing it with us.
If im just near there, maybe i will go there and take a picture lying on the corks. Just like they are doing with the snow, Snow angel.
With that, yoy can create a cork angel. Hahaha

Czy jest coś bardziej portugalskiego niż korki z korka?

Seems like there is a tarp underneath the corks? Not sure if that was for weed control though it seemed to large. Perhaps it was for a photoshoot and easy clean up. Seemed they were rather newish. Great monos.

Thanks! The black thing under could be for weeds, though I dunno if it would be needed in a park where everywhere around weeds grow anyway. The cork I still don't know what is it for besides some decoration.
