MOONLIGHT PEACE, SPAIN, 2013

 

Babak Tafreshi

 

“La Palma, in the Canary Islands, is a stargazer’s paradise. This shot was taken in the summer on the east side of the island. It’s the beginning of a high-altitude forest and is completely hidden from roads and all habitation, which gives you the darkest sky in Europe. It’s also part of the Caldera de Taburiente National Park, so it’s a combination of wonderful nature and a stunning night sky.

This image shows the connection between the universe and nature. The gentle illumination was from the second-quarter moon rising at midnight. Sirius, the brightest start in the night sky, is in the middle of the picture. And rising above a neighboring island at the horizon is the second brightest star of our night sky, Canopus.”
