Shoot for the stars!

I stayed at a Parador (hotel) on the plateau of Mt Teide, here on Tenerife.  The hotel is situated at 3270 metres (10,728 feet) above sea level.

Not only is it a spectacular hotel with amazing views of the mountain peak directly out of your window, but it is also one of the best places in Europe for star watching. It truly is spectacular! While the night we went was a bit foggy, we got some cool atmospheric photos:

We did manage to get a reasonably clear photo looking out towards the mountain:

I can honestly say, with gratuitous alliteration, that midnight on the mountain is magical!
