I entitled this picture "contrast" because I loved the look of the 
 fragile poppies and wildflowers growing on this embankment against
a rock solid (literally) wall and old olive tree.  
The contrast is also in relation to new life and growth vs. the old, ancient and
 established - the ancient walls of the castle and the very old olive tree
under which the poppies were growing.
 This image was taken during the recent trip to Portugal outside the
St. George Castle in Lisbon.  We were in a rush and a  snapped a few images
in a hurry, wish I'd caught more of the olive tree... alas!!

Great contrasts, I agree. It wouldn't have been the same without the tree though.
