This composition is the result of a sequence "Timelapse" which appear in my future video "CANARIANS VOLCANIC TRAILS" which should come in winter 2012/2013.

Basically, I wanted to make a composition with a black night and the rock lit with the technique of "lightpainting" but that night, the moon was too bright and not ready to fold.
Finally, I still chose a hundred photos to create this image.

For my sequence "Time lapse" I stayed for 4:30 in my rental car at about 2500 m altidude and it was close to 0 degrees (Celsius). As the day, it was 30 degrees...... ^ ^
It was one of "photography trip" the harder and tiring that I lived because I was shooting after the beginning of afternoon until dawn and slept three hours the night in my car and 3 hours in hotel in the morning for 2 weeks.

I would go back better prepared, better equipped and with attention to the moon cycle this time :) """
