Rural area in Tomar near Pegões Aqueduct in Portugal

When I visited the Aqueduct of Pegões (Aqueduto dos Pegões) in the outskirts of Tomar, which was completed in 17th century to carry water to the Convent of Christ, I took the opportunity to walk around the area and shot a few pictures of the rural surroundings. These photos were taken close to the aqueduct and in the distance you can see a plantation of olive trees and a few countryside houses. Other than the olive trees, the area is also covered with pine trees.

    My husband & I recently returned from Portugal & took a train ride out to Tomar one day. Unfortunately, the train was moving way too fast to get a decent picture to represent the countryside we passed along the way. I found your images on the internet & was wondering if you were OK if I used the 1st or 2nd on e above in my fb album to share with family (I’ll credit you with the photo) to show them what the countryside was like – we only got pictures in town & in Lisbon.
