the moon setting provides for a special atmosphere during a stormy night at Deseada I mountain, right in the middle of the Ruta de los Volcanos, the worlds most spectacular volcanic ridge and hiking route. It is the very dark sky of La Palma, a small island in front of Africa, that allows the Milky Way to be seen so good aside of the moon.

Location: deseada volcano, La Palma, Canary Islands, Spain
