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.

This particular area of Teide is called Minas de San Jose – one of my favourite places to go in the park.

Vast fields of shingle expand over miles, pierced by sharp and jagged volcanic rock. It’s eerily silent at night, but the view above encapsulates you for hours. The landscape is reminiscent of a scene from Mars.

This is one of the few self-portraits I’ve shot where I wanted to position myself in the photo as a small stargazer to visualise a sense of scale as I’m dwarfed by the Milky Way rising over my head.

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.
