20 min. time exposure of setting stars, taken on Tenerife at an altitude of about 8,000ft with Mt Teide in the background. It was a little chilly up there, which was the main factor in limiting the exposure time!
I like the way the different colours of the stars show up, hope you enjoy.
If you should visit Tenerife I would highly recommend an evening trip into Las Canadas national park. Even if it is cloudy at sea level, you can usually drive up through the clouds into clear air.
In clear weather on a moonless night, the sky up there is crystal clear and dark, with myriads of stars. The first time I went up at dusk I saw some wispy clouds form as it was getting dark, before realising it was actually the Milky Way! I've never seen it that clearly before or since. There is even a Parador hotel up at 7,000 ft which is well worth a night or two.
PS Heading back to England for a couple of weeks tomorrow, so I probably won't be posting much, see you when we return!
