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!

A Welsh Sunrise

A Welsh Sunrise

In what seems like a lifetime ago we visited Wales, exploring some of the towns and countryside near St. David’s, Newport and elsewhere.

Here’s a sunrise outside St. David’s. Up early at 5am. Lovely to be out so early when the world is so quiet.
