A Lonely Tree and the Mesmerizing Presence of Milky Way as Seen from Atacama Desert

| | |

Even in a remote desert we can find beautiful lonely trees like this one, which stands close to the outstanding presence of Milky Way as seen from San Pedro de Atacama, in Chile. This vertical panorama of single 15 sec exposures, shows that in the darkest places on Earth, free from light pollution, the pristine presence of Milky Way can reach a level of brightness enough to project the smooth shadow of the tree on the ground, really impressive to notice! The background horizon where the Milky Way rises behind the lowest tree branch, left edge, is visible the silhouette from one the highest stratovolcanos in the world, Licancabur, located near the border with Bolivia, has 5916 meters.

PT:  Mesmo num deserto remoto podemos encontrar belas árvores solitárias como esta, que se destaca diante da presença marcante da Via Láctea vista a partir de San Pedro de Atacama, no Chile. Este panorama vertical de disparos únicos de 15 segundos de exposição, mostra que nos lugares mais escuros da Terra, livres de poluição luminosa, a presença pristina da Via Láctea pode atingir um nível de brilho suficiente para projetar a sombra suave de uma árvore no solo! No horizonte de fundo onde a Via Láctea surge atrás do galho mais baixo da árvore, no limite esquerdo, é visível a silhueta de um dos estratovulcões mais altos do mundo, Licancabur, localizado próximo à fronteira com a Bolívia, tem 5916 metros.
