Teide Observatory | Tenerife, Spain

Tenerife Teide Observatory on a sunny day, Spain.

Getting the right conditions at Teide in Tenerife can be very tricky. This is due to the fact that on sea level, you actually have no idea how it is up there. The best way is to check the webcam on the observatory, and if it looks good – you can get into your car and drive up to more than 2000m above sea level.

This time, I desperately wanted this scene with a sky-blue scene, as it provides the perfect contrast to the yellow vegetation. Once I tried this – it worked out on the second try. On the first attempt, it was too stormy to even get out of the car – something you couldn’t see on the webcam.

The Teide Observatory is located exactly 2,390 meters over sea level. It is supposed to be one of the best places to see the night sky. In one of the buildings in the photo, there is a telescope which is famous for discovering first brown dwarf (something between a planet and a star, that scientists sometimes refer to as the “failed star”).

And would you guess what it is called? Teide – 1 of course. 😊

I would love to spend one night walking around and shooting photos of the stars. It must be an outstanding experience. And maybe next time, we can do this when we visit Tenerife and a storm isn’t present on Teide.

My goal is always to create the best possible and most exciting photos to do justice to the places where they’ve been taken.

Maybe this place evokes some good memory for you?

Or it's a place which you always dreamed to be one day?

I wish a high-quality print of my photo will bring you a feeling of being there at any time!
