It's known as the Roof of Africa and, as we looked out over the clouds, we felt like we were literally sky-high!"

One building caught my attention because it was extremely different to other buildings nearby, due to its strict design and lines that were directed to the sky. I stood between two columns and looked up to the sky to witness a mesmerising view that would be shameful not to capture."

The crowds had left and the amateur astronomers were taking down their telescopes. A light ground fog was rolling in, turning flashlights into lightsabers. The tiny constellation Delphinus leaps over the flashlight beam. The circle effect comes from using a reduced-frame lens with a full-frame camera sensor."
