TRACKED BLENDED PANO 'At the edge of the precipice'
Tenerife's crater is extremely dark because of two factors. The first one is of course the nature of the surrounding mineral environment principally constituted of dark basalt rocks and the volcanic rocks. The second is -believe it or not, caused by light pollution. It's so important when there's no lower clouds that it really creates a backlit situation, tremendously increasing contrasts and the darks in the shadows, much like staring into the light! That surely has a consequence when you try to move around at night inside the barren crater of El Teide! Unless you find yourself on a rare brighter area like on these whitish dust dunes of Minas de San Jose, you will need a head lamp to avoid falling into a 300-foot precipice, much like what stands right in front of me on the picture! Although the environment is just one of a kind with the iconic mountains in the background, and the milky way core rising bright right behind them! If you haven't been, I definitely recommend going, especially if you're an outdoor or astronomy lover!
