This is the first post showing images from our holiday trip to the beautiful, 'scented island'.
We were passing through such lanscape on our way to Rondinara Camping: Pinkish granite boulders, shrubs - the maquis, and cork oak trees. Most of them charcoal black. Cork oaks are very resistant to fires because of its inch-thick bark, yes, the cork in wine bottles is made of it. The bark is stripped off the trunks every nine years and then the tree is allowed to heal.
Aparently these were not healed fully when the fire came.
