Summary Author: Ana Garci'a Sua'rez
Featured above is the springtime explosion of Llano del Jable (La
Palma, Canary Islands of Spain), as observed at an altitude over 3,900
ft (1,188 m). The valley area here is dominated by pine trees, but
in early spring the flowering of a diminutive plant, known as Pico
de Graja (no more than 1 ½ inches or 4 cm in height), covers the entire
ground like a red carpet.

This nightscape is illuminated by the crescent Moon. Unfocused in
the nighttime sky is the constellation of Canis Major. Photo taken
on March 20, 2021.
Photo details: Canon 6D camera; Samyang 24mm lens; f2.0; 13 second
