A photo composite of multiple exposures. From the photographer: “A narrow path to a small plateau called Pared de Roberto offers a wonderful place to observe the eclipse high above the Caldera de Taburiente. A multiple exposure with a stationary camera and a wide-angle lens impressively shows the entire course of this total lunar eclipse over one of the most spectacular landscapes on our planet, the Caldera de Taburiente, a gigantic caldera on the Canary Island of La Palma. As the moon moves around its own diameter in about 2 minutes due to the daily rotation of the earth, an interval of 6 minutes was chosen for this series of images. The foreground shot was taken with a long exposure time shortly before the full moon moved into the field of view. A windless night allows the making of a complete row over a period of nearly five hours. For the series, the exposure time was steadily adjusted as the eclipse progressed.”
