Walk though a Chestnut grove in November

 In went for a walk today with some friends though a Sweet Chestnut grove about an hours drive west of Madrid, Spain.
 Most of these images speak for themselves.  The image above stood out to me as the eight tree trunks were all growing out of the cut stump of one old Chestnut tree.

 This man in this picture was raking the leaves into piles and then burning them.  An occasional sweet chestnut would end up in the fire which would send out a muted popping sound every 10 to 15 seconds.

 This family was busy collecting the sweet chestnuts, filling large sacks and getting them ready to go into town to sell.

This just stood out to me as a pleasant country fall scene.

Hope you enjoyed the pictures as much as I enjoyed taking them!
