Moonlit Caldera

A 25 second exposure from a time-lapse taken over the cloud filled Caldera de Taburiente in La Palma in the Canary Islands. Mars is the red object to the left of the Milky Way. Saturn is in there too but is lost amongst the milky way. The bright lights hidden under the clouds are from the towns of Los Llanos and Tazacorte only about 7-8 miles away as the crow flies but about 90 minutes away by car! 25 sec at f/1.8, 14mm Sigma lens, ISO 3200, Canon 6D. The scene was illuminated by a crescent moon beyond the right of the image.

Ah. My favourite photo from your Milky Way set. Those clouds must be a welcome mask for all those lights down there. What's it like when the clouds disperse ?

It still amazes me when people get such stunning pictures with everything in focus.
