In my travels I have encountered a great many trees growing in places and locations where one has to stop and wonder how did they grow there? These are all black and white because I want the focus on the trees in the landscape without the distraction of color.

Trees are not common in Crete. The island has been significantly deforested and thorny shrubs have grown in their place. These two trees struck me as out of place and something to be remembered. Crete has since begun a tree planting program to try to reverse the deforestation.
