Amidst the clouds!

Dec. 21st, 2016. The shortest day and the longest night of the year for this hemisphere. We’re stuck in the middle of it: huge amounts of thick, white, humid and dripping material that doesn’t want to leave the mountain top.

Above the clouds

May 5th, 2016, Roque de los Muchachos, La Palma. Surrounded by an ocean of clouds which sometimes reach the summit, the observatory stays clear from clouds during the night. During daytime an explosion of flowers can be seen, with “los tajinastes rosados” as the most impressive ones!

At the observatory

Jan, 24th, 2016. The last sunset of this January campaign seen from the observatory of Roque de los Muchachos (2400 m) merited a quick stroll to the edge of the mountain crater…
