Many of you have heard of La Palma, one of the Canary Islands, as one of the best spots for astrophotography.

Well, it's true. Local laws assure very little light pollution. For example, flyovers are forbidden and street lights are reglemented.

This scenery was shot on the south coast at Faro de Fuencaliente lighthouse. It is an absolutely incredible location not only for astro shots but also for seascapes with crashing waves and volcanic rock formations.

The panorama is timeblended. Blue hour shots for the foreground and night shots for the milky way arch.

It was a fantastic experience and since now one of the images I am most proud of.
