If I was an alien, visiting Earth, I'd disguise myself as a cactus too.
Another galactic image I took up in the volcanic crater at Mt Teide in Tenerife last week. This one's another portrait stitch of about 5 images.
The milky way was a bit more prominent than the last image as I took it about 2 nights prior when the moon wasn't quite as full so didn't wash out the stars.
Please click on the image above to view it black (and larger), or click here to view large on black.
