Volcano Erupting underneath the stars

January 16, 2019

After quite an insane hike, to start climbing the third highest mountain of Central America, we got to base camp at 3700m. Here we would spend the night, before continuing our climb to reach the summit. At Basecamp we were awarded with views of the close by and super active Fuego volcano - which unfortunately claimed many lives already this year due to increased activity. Nevertheless, I stayed up all night to catch a few stunning eruptions, and when I say stunning I mean literally stunning. Such an eruption goes through your soul. A deep and low rumbling that just hits you in a way only mother nature can. Inarguably one of the most insane things I've ever witnessed.
Also to be seen in the shot are the super bright star Menkar (right side of the shot) and Pleiades at the left side.
