Teleki Valley, elevation: approx. 4000 m asl. The giant inflorescences in the central foreground belong to Lobelia deckenii ssp. keniensis. Behind, the giant groundsel with the stem represents the species Senecio keniodendron. These types of plants are characteristic for tropical high-mountain areas. The summit area of Mt. Kenya with Batian (5199 m) appears in the left central background of the image.
