Teide Na­tional Park, Tener­ife “I re­tired to the beau­ti­ful is­land of Tener­ife back in 2013. One of the top sites in the world for as­tron­omy, the Caldera in Teide Na­tional Park is at an alti­tude of over 2,000 me­tres [6,562 feet]. With a dry at­mos­phere and lim­ited light pol­lu­tion it has proved to be the ideal lo­ca­tion to com­bine my hob­bies of pho­tog­ra­phy and as­tron­omy – here are a cou­ple of shots of our Milky Way gal­axy a true plea­sure to image at such a fine lo­ca­tion, com­pletely free of light pol­lu­tion.”
