Unimportant countryside details

My father-in-law lives in one of the last pockets of rural suburbs in Sintra district, surrounded by hight density modern housings. The harsh topography turned the land unattractive to developers and real estate traders. It´s a poor, aged and neglected place and most youngsters have left for good. Nature is claiming back its former grounds.

  1. Some great photos here! It’s great when nature starts to reclaim the land. We don’t often allow that to happen so it’s nice to see when it does.

      Thanks, Mike. This reclaim of land gives the place a very peaceful and nostalgic mood but at the expense of many broken dreams, I guess.
