Image details - Blue Tajinaste
Echium thyrsiflorum (Syn. Echium gentianoides) is endemic to the mountains of La Palma island – from high up, there was a magnificent view of both the caldera below, and the stars above. The UNESCO La Palma Biosphere Reserve encompasses the entire island, with the Caldera de Taburiente containing mountains with a highest peak of 2,426 m – the Roque de los Muchachos.
To achieve this image, I combined two different exposures together; one of the sky and one of the foreground.
