Description

But now for something completely different ;)

I just returned from a holiday trip to tenerife…

After hiking to the Refugio Altavista in the Teide National Park, i was able to capture an astronomical picture using my little compact camera.
Just after sunset, the shadow of Pico del Teide was visible next to the rising full moon over the Teide Observatory.
A very impressive view from 3200m above sea level. Unfortunately i decided not to carry my DSLR with Tripod up there :(
The sunrise from the Teide peak on the next morning was worth the effort!
