This is the theme for Jake's most recent Sunday Post challenge.
Flat lands have been rather neglected by me and my camera because I have, until now, found hills and mountains more appealing. However, I live on the coastal plains of southern Portugal, so I went out and took some new shots this week. Citrus trees, carob trees, olive trees and almond trees do well here.

|Grazing - there is a flock of sheep just visible in the distance|
|Almonds trees in a line|
Never-ending expanses of grazing land can be found further north in the Alentejo region. On one of my future car trips to the north I must get off the motorway and take more photos of this beautiful landscape.
