I would recommend to anyone and everyone to see the night sky in dark conditions at least once in their life. In a world where most of us live under a cloak of light pollution, it’s a rare experience in today’s society to see the stars in their true glory.

Teide National Park is in my opinion, is one of the best places to do this in this world. Situated on the island of Tenerife in the Canary Islands, off the west coast of Morocco; this volcanic island is world renowned for its dark sky. What makes it even better is its accessibility to tourists, you don’t have to travel for long from the bustling hotels and nightlife of the island to seek something spectacular.

For this photo, I wanted to capture a minimalistic self-portrait. It was the last photo I took on my 2018 trip to Tenerife, and the final photos I take are always special ones to me.

It was taken in an area called Minas de San Jose, where you can explore huge gravel dunes among volcanic rock. I spent a while in the pitch black trying to find an area which had the right shape.

Although Teide is a popular place for stargazers, you can often feel very remote in the eerie silence at altitude, and I wanted to capture this feeling of isolation, but also a sense of awe at the stars and Milky Way above.

Promise to Plant

Photos print to paper, and the paper needs packaging & delivering. There’s no way of getting around that, so in an effort to give back and help mitigate the environmental impact of the process of printing and delivering, for every order placed, a tree is planted through the World Land Trust, who help establish and protect habitats and areas of biodiversity.
