These plants are only found at altitudes above 3,100m and can grow up to 9m in height. They dominate the Afroalpine landscape as they grow much larger than any of the other plants. This shot was taken on the Sanetti Plateau (at around 4,000m)

This is a very nice place, with beautiful trees.
The light and the colors are nice too, and I like that cloud over the summit in the background.
It should be a very nice place for hiking!

I've never seen this kind of trees before, not even on any picture. They look like palm trees. Maybe they are related. It's a picturesque place in Africa. Thanks for sharing.

I'd love to visit Ethiopia and I love this distinctive landscape Federico. The Lobelia are beautifully captured here with the shiny leaves looking silky as they reflect the light.
Good colours and an high altitude ambience with the clouds hanging over the peaks.
Warm regards Rosemary
