Milky Way above the Pacaya Volcano

From the photographer: "I decided to look for the Milky Way from the trail that leads to Pacaya Volcano’s crater, hoping to catch a timelapse image. The weather conditions were not ideal, due to the high levels of humidity and the possibility of rain. The night was covered with fog when I started the ascent, and so it stayed during the rest of the night. Suddenly, for a window of 5 or 10 minutes, the view cleared and I took my test-shots to set the timelapse, but the fog covered the night again."
Technical details: This picture was shot at 2am, on Sunday May 5th, 11mm / f3.2 / 30 sec.
