Let’s take another look at a night sky photo; this time from Erez Marom who captured this incredible Milky Way shot while in Parque Nacional Tayrona (Tayrona National Park), Colombia. As you would have it, this shot wasn’t planned or sought out but instead it was a product of opportunity. There were only two real sleeping arrangements that night, an incredibly uncomfortable hammock or an impossibly hot and humid tent. Well, Mr. Marom chose not to sleep at all, instead grabbing his camera and taking advantage of the night sky and location. I’d say the decision worked out pretty well!
The Tayrona National Park is a protected region in northern Colombia which is 21 miles (34 kilometers) from the city of Santa Marta and spans approximately 150 square km with the purpose of protecting the regions ecological environment.
