Moon set at the Roque de Los Muchachos


A crescent moon setting over La Palma from the north facing side of the Roque de Los Muchachos. The astronomers accommodation is visible to the far right of the picture and clouds down near sea level (about 6000ft lower) reflect the moonlight. The Milky Way is coming into view on the left of the picture. A single picture can't give you sound (yet) but at this spot the sound of the cicada's was almost deafening unlike a few hundred yards the other way in the caldera whee the sound of the mosquitos is almost deafening...
20 seconds through a Canon 6D, 14mm Samyang lens at f/2.8, ISO1600
