Every year, the travel and photography guide Capture the Atlas organizes a competition with the best photos of the Milky Way. As seeing the beauty of space with the naked eye is not always possible, fortunately, with a little talent and the right equipment, you can capture it with a camera. See the highlights of 2022:

Uros Fink’s photo was taken from the Julian Alps in Slovenia. The photographer says that he planned the trip with a friend for six months, which gave the duo great results.

The friends joined several other professionals on Mount Mangart, the third highest mountain in the country, from which you can see the stunning Andromeda Galaxy. Fink also managed to record the passage of the Perseid meteor shower, associated with comet Swift-Tuttle.

Alvin Wu made his record in Tibet. The lake that makes up the landscape freezes during the winter, when temperatures are around minus 20ºC. The image composition combines the blue ice surface with the dazzling constellation Orion.

“A balcony for the stars” – Efrén Yanes

The photo of Efrén Yanes was taken in Tenerife, in the Spanish territory of the Canary Islands. It was not easy to get to the click, as the tide had to be low for the photographer to be able to enter the cave. In addition, the sea conditions must also be perfect to not present risks.

It took three attempts until he managed to reach the stage. The person seen in the background of the photo is Yanes himself, who has fitted himself into the frame to give viewers a sense of scale.

“Secret” – Marcin Zajac

Barakat writes: “The smell and atmosphere of these lavender fields are unreal, and standing there among them in the middle of the night is a delight, especially since the bees have gone to sleep and you don’t risk being stung!”
