This is one of my most favorite shots I have ever taken. The photograph comes from La Palma – the Canary Islands, where I spent about two weeks in July. At the beginning of that night, I just thought if it will worth it to shoot in such extremely strong wind. I met with Jakob and Florian – a fantastic duo of German photographers and finally, we found only one place with leeward. Place at a higher altitude with an amazingly clear atmosphere allowed us to look towards the deeper universe. View to the dark volcanic caldera and cloud inversion was in contrast with the spectacular night sky. Just from a really dark place, You can see the Milky Way shining that bright, beautiful colorful airglow above the horizon, and even zodiacal light extending among the sky.
