Shot for the Day (20 April 2017)


Another shot from La Palma island.  This one was taken close to a place called El Pinar, at around 1500m in the dense pine forests that are often shrouded in cloud.  This long exposure shows the clouds rolling in, covering the forest and hill tops in the distance.

Apparently, there is a specific species of pine tree on the Canary islands, called Pinus canariensis.  These Canary Island Pine trees can grow up to 50 meters tall and have large cones (up to 30cm).
