Last minutes in the village before entering the Masca gorge. I couldn´t believe my eyes when I saw the huge Poinsettia bushes, nearly trees. Poinsettia is a popular Christmas flower in Finland but they are just little plants in small pots. Vegetation of The Canary Islands is unique and special.
Unfortunately I couldn´t tear off the power line that looks annoying on the photo.
If you are interested in knowing more about the Masca, please read the note of the previous photo "Isolated Masca"

another stunning composition from Masca!
I must say I´m delighted how excellently you filled the FG with this red flower.It´s so eye-catching and makes at the same time superb strong contrast to the surrounding.
Have a nice sunday

So this was taken high up in Masca before you walked on your descent of the mountain to the sea! Yes, we get Poinsettias here at Christmastime too but, as in Finland, they are just little plants in pots. This is a huge and spectacularly colourful example!
A gorgous picture with incredible depth of field and excellent sharpness throughout - from the bright red leaves on the left to the distant mountains. Very well composed too with lots of colour and interest throughout the frame. I wouldn't worry too much about the cabling running through the foliage at the bottom - I hardly noticed it until you pointed it out and it would take ages to "clone" it out.
An interesting note too.

Superb POV Masca Valley, has captured all his most important manifestations .... the rugged orography, the elegance of its palm trees and the beauty of the flowers of the Poinsettia.
Very good range of colors.
A beautiful job very well done.
With good lighting and sharpness.
Have a nice day.
