Hi Friends,

As the end of the year is here, it's always good to look back to the past and to make a summary, what happened, what did we like the most. For me the top experience of the year was our trip to the Canaries in March as this was the 1st time I left Europe and travelled to the tropics - as the Canary Islands, although politically are parts of Spain, geographically belong to Africa (they're on the same latitude as the southernmost part of Morocco). I've seen so many extraordinary things what I never forget, that I wish to return at least once every year. :-)

Here, on this photo you can see the giant spurge Euphorbia candelabrum Trémaux ex Kotschy in the viewpoint Degollada de la Yegua - please click to this photo of mine for species link, this to read about the view point and this for brief info about the island of Gran Canaria itself if interested.

Photo: taken at sunset, with ISO 80, f/8, 1/640 sec. in manual exposure mode. No PP at all except for re-sizing to the TN standard. Altitude: 480 meters asl.

Thanks for your attention in 2019, this is my last upload in this year (I continue with my New Year, New Species series next time, in 2020). Have a happy and prosperous new year, see you all here soon.

Hi Laszlo,in fact it is nice to take stock at the end of the year and pleasantly remember the beautiful things that have happened. I am glad that you were thrilled with this trip to the Canaries, discovering new things about natural species. And this sunset photo is like a metaphor for the end of 2019, well played with the silhouette against the light of this truly imposing and spectacular species. My best wishes for a happy new year to you and your family and thanks for your always useful comments.Luciano.

Hi Laszlo,

I like the play between the lighted and shadowed areas. The point of view is showing some details of the cactus. The sunset is giving nice colors to the sky. Happy New Year 2020.
