(Dimension: 2030 x 1389 pixels - Counter: 3504)
Photographer: Stephen Downes
Note: Pale green interior with pink crust. Photographed on a rock wall in a mountain pass on Gran Canaria (precisely: at the intersection of highways 21 and 230, by the large arch) at an altitude +500m. Exact species unknown - I can find anything that looks like it - if you recognize it, please email me. This is a very unusual specimen even if it is one of the usual varieties (like aeonium canariense), but not an isolated instance - a number of them were growing nearby, and can be seen in the background of the photo.
