Aeonium rubrolineatum
Parque Nacional de Garajonay - La Gomera (Islas Canarias)

Arbusto de la familia de las Crasulaceas, de tallo grueso y carnoso de hasta 1 m de altura con rosetas pequeñas y pequeñas inflorescencias que forman a finales de verano flores de color amarillo rosado.
Se trata de una especie oriunda de las islas, aunque se citan especímenes naturalizados y escapados de cultivo en diversas provincias de la península Ibérica y también en Marruecos y el archipiélago de Madeira. Se caracterizan por ser plantas arbustivas ramificadas, siendo los arbustos altos, robustos y con inflorescencias densas y cónicas de flores amarillas o amarillo-rosadas.

Dedicated to dear Alexei (Alex99), who was missing a new posting from me.
This plant uses to grow on steep slopes, as far as I could find in the Canary island of La Gomera, where it's endemic.
I had almost to risk my life to take this shot, but I liked the similarity between the shape of the bunch (or whatever its name is in English) and the peak behind (named Roque Agando), of which I will put a shot as a workshop.
I hope you like it.
Thank you very much to all for your visit.

Hola Maite,
Pues sí, al igual que Alexei es todo un placer tenerte de nuevo colgando fotos por acá.
Es muy buena la composición que has creado, con ese punto de vista ascendente que nos dea ver de fondo ese alto pico, y que funciona de maravilla como fondo.
Me llamó la atención que el color de las flores sea "amarillo-rosado", que belleza!
Y encima que la planta sea oriunda de las islas Canarias, que orgullo!
Mis felicitaciones y muchas gracias por tus fotos.
Un gran abrazo,
JM

Hi, dear Maite.
I never shall forgive to myself if your life will be in danger because of our common passion to photography. However, your post is very touching and dear for me. Both pictures are amazing and supplements each other perfectly. Your are right the likeness of the plant and pick is great but more great your creative composition, framing and quality of the picture. I am amazed with superb DOF and sharpness of the nearest and far objects. Lighting and alive colours are very nice and pleasant to eyes. My heart wishes and sympathy. TFS and kind regards.
Alexei.

Bonjour Maite,
Cette espèce est impressionnante. il n'y a pas de crassulaceae aussi opulentes en France. J'aime beaucoup la composition de ton image, avec l'analogie de l'infloresence avec le piton volcanique en arrière plan. c'est très bien vu.
Amicalement,
Hervé

Hi Maite,
you had to risk you life,well I for one am glad you are well and not hurt in getting your photo.It is interesting how the shape of the flower is so similar to that of the background mountain.I like the look of these flowers clustered as they are and the colour is nice.A well focused and interesting composition and thanks for sharing.I looked at this photo before I read your note and I see you say the same about the similarity of the two as well. Bob

Your focus is really good Maite. I like the triangular shapes in this photo.The rocky mountain in the back is a nice feature for the flowers. You be careful my dear. Don't risk too much or I'll miss you.
I fell in a lake once, but kept the camera safe.
Have a nice weekend.

Hello Maite,
very passionate approach - oh dear, impressively powerful how the bunch is brought in correspondence with the rock behind. Wonderful light. What a perfect document of this precious endemic plant. Thank you!
My best regards,
Peter

:)

Hello Maite,
Now that is a different plant, and a fine capture!
I like the sharp details, and the fine light gives great colours...
I also notice the summit behind has the same shape as the plant..!
Greetings,
Pablo -

Hi Maite,
It's been long time!
Excellent bouquet. Beautiful colours with halo effect on it.
Great DOF, is this a mountain behind?
Regards,

Claude

Hello Maite,
Etonnante forme de ces plantes grasses de Gomera. Et que tu puisses répéter celle-ci à l'arrière avec la montagne, crée une image tout à fait originale. J'aime aussi beaucoup ce genre de plantes. Bien vu.
Bonne journée

Hello Maite,
Beautiful flower that you are showing here. The image is sharp and crisp clear. Very nice pov. TFS this rare species that can be found only on this island.

Realmente bella esa planta Maite, y la supiste plasmar bien. No tiene desperdicio ni el fondo ni la base, donde pueden observarse esas hojas carnosas. Buenos y naturales colores. Buen control de la luz.
Saludos y buen fin de semana.

Precioso Aeonium con el Roque Agando de fondo.
Bellos colores los de esta formación vegetal y estupenda nota.

Muy buenas Maite
Curiosa foto la que nos muestras con ese "peñón" al fondo que si bien puede dar lugar a estorbar en la compo al continuar siguiendo las formas de la flor se complementa perfectamente. La explicación sobre la planta también muy buena.
Un abrazo

Hi Maite,

This is a fantastic shot! You captured a very striking similarity (despite the risk!) and the plant is definitely being inspired by the rock!

Great details and a wonderful point of view.
