Watching People Whale Watching

Watching People Whale Watching

In Tenerife we went on a whale and dolphin tour. While we saw a few those animals, my photos of their backs and fins breaking the water aren’t the most exciting. Here’s another group who were doing the same.

The Milky Way in Tenerife

The Milky Way in Tenerife

The Milky Way captured from inside Teide National Park.

This is a stacked image created from 19 images of the sky and 10 “noise” images. It was assembled in Sequator using this video tutorial to help me figure out how to use it. Final adjustments in Lightroom.

Getting to Teide National Park, inside a volcano, involves a long car journey going up. We were around 2300m above sea level when I took this photo, and it takes about an hour to drive here from the coast. Driving up the whole time. Quite an experience, especially after midnight. Out of the corner of my eye I spotted the lights of the resorts far below which made my stomach turn briefly, but the road was simple to follow. It just kept going up and up…

I was amazed when we got there finally. I don’t think I’ve ever seen so many stars. The night sky was so dark the stars lit up brightly. Unfortunately clouds rolled in as we were taking photos but this image was the first stack I made, and the cloud hadn’t become too thick yet.

Thanks Henry for the lend of the 14mm Samyang lens. It was great having that extra wide lens!
