This image of the zodiacal light was taken by Felipe Gallego on January 23, 2012 near the natural park of Sierra Norte de Sevilla in Spain.
Zodiacal light appears as a faint, diffused, triangular, white glow extending up from the vicinity of the Sun along the ecliptic or zodiac. Ideally, zodiacal light can be seen during springtime or autumn, just after sunset and before sunrise.
Felipe used a Canon 5d Mark II camera, with a Samyang 14 mm at f2,8, 25 s of exposure and ISO 5000. The image was processed with Gimp.
