Photographer's Note

Hi every one, a short visit on TE to share the pleasure of these pictorial exchanges.
Here a tree which I like : the umbrella pine.
The umbrella pine or maritime is very widespread on the western littoral of the Mediterranean. It is used for the afforestation and the fixing of the grounds like here on the island of Porquerolles, but also for the exploitation of its wood and its resins.
Also called pinus pinea, it is cultivated for its fruits; these hard seeds contain an edible almond, the pinion, used in pastry making.
