Photographer Egor Goryachev took this colourful photo of the milky way in La Palma on the Canary Islands of Spain.

Mr Goryachev said during the spring months, the Milky Way core starts to appear in the southeast part of the early morning sky.

“It becomes possible to photograph the whole Milky Way Arch at an almost 180-degree angle from north to south,” he said.

“I chose Pico de la Cruz, one of the summits on La Palma Island, as my main location to spend the night shooting our galaxy.

“Around 4am, the Milky Way was high enough in the sky that I could start shooting at 50mm and capture a pretty decent arch shape without any distortion of the surrounding stars.

Although it was very windy, Mr Goryachev said be was able to photograph some sharp images.

“All the colors of the Arch, the green airglow emission, the dark sky, and the lights of the neighboring island of Tenerife on the horizon are visible and remind me of this unforgettable experience,” he said.

“I tried the first night and it was frustrating because the location had zero light pollution, so the photo came out extremely dark, even at ISO 6400.

“I came back the next day at sunset, and during the blue hour, I took a photo of the foreground.

“Then, I waited for the Milky Way in the same tripod position and took the photo of the sky.”
