The "summer double" M8 and M20 taken from the Roque de los Muchachos on La Palma.
Since it was still spring the image was taken in the early morning just before the sun was rising.
Beside the two nebulas there are a lot of other NGC objects in the image as well as the star rich clouds of the milky way.
Taken with an unmodified Eos 200d, Canon 200L @ f/4, the star adventurer and the MGEN-autoguider.
