Etna had an another one of its paroxysms. In this event me and my cousin reached the Valle del Bove, a great point to see the eruption of the Southeast Crater.
Initially, we had to seek shelter among the rocks because the wind was too strong, but it doesn’t worked; In fact, after we pitched the tent to get a greater repair but most especially to change the optics in peace.
For this photography I made an exposure for the sky and another for the ground, then I merged them toghether using Photoshop, finally I made some adjusting of contrast, light and shadow.

The volcano Etna continues its eruption characterized by continuous paroxysms with new lava fountains and new lava flows.
I went to the Valle del Bove with my cousin to see this spectacular show.
The sky was very clear, the moon was not visible (it was visible a little bit later around midnight) and the stars could be seen very clearly. There was a single problem: the wind.
We were at a high altitude, about 2500 meters, so the wind was very evident. We were therefore forced to seek shelter behind some rocks.
I executed the Startrail with 100 shots interspersed with 30 seconds exposure and then I merged them together.
