I took this image during Halloween night, the weather was amazing and I couldn’t resist to drive 160km away from Madrid. The image was taken from Bonilla, a little town in Cuenca.

The Iris Nebula is a reflection nebula located in Cepheus Constellation, it’s surrounded by dark dust which is a little bit difficult to capture in a photo.
