The volcanic Roques de García at Teide National Park give this impressive foreground of evening twilight. The young waxing moon had its position in the open star cluster of the Hyades in the constellation of the bull. A slim lunar sickle is visible with the rest of the faint lunar surface illuminated by earthshine.
