Thank you, it is really amazing

Behind The Lens

Location
The photo was taken on the night of March 26, 2017 on the southern slope of Etna.
Time
The photo was taken at night to highlight the moving lava flow and the stars.
Lighting
That day on the Etna was undergoing a weak effusive activity, and I looked for a dark enough spot from where I could see the river of lava slowly descending from the top of the volcano
Equipment
To obtain this photo it is essential to have a sturdy tripod, also because Etna is often windy.
Inspiration
Etna is a good source of inspiration and a stimulus to experiment with new things.
Editing
Only the essential things in Photoshop (white balance, open shadows a bit, etc.)
In my camera bag
A camera, a tripod, two battery, a polarizing filter and an ND filter
Feedback
You have to search for a place with little light pollution and a good view
