Saying goodbye to La Palma and the amazing group we had this past week at the Astromasters photography workshop. A special thanks to our tireless leader @babaktafreshi
— in my opinion THE best night sky photographer on the planet. If anyone is considering a photography trip I highly recommend his workshops... I learned a ton, and had so much fun along the way. .
This panorama of the Milky Way was taken at about 3:30 in the morning from way up on the volcano mountain of La Palma. The caldera fills with low lying clouds below us and is illuminated by the town lights below. Living in cities with light pollution it’s easy to forget how magnificent our night sky is. And consider that all of humanity before cities became blanketed in light used to see this spectacle regularly... I think it’s Important not to lose this connection with our ancestors and our place in the universe. .
