Details:
This photo was taken just two hours ago from Teide Observatory (IAC) in Tenerife, Canary Islands. The comet is on the distant island of Gran Canaria, while in the central cloud appears the planet Mercury. The comet is at the limit of naked eye visibility and in the photos appears with a long tail.

The photo was obtained by simple means: a SLR camera with a small telephoto lens (85 mm focal length) on a static tripod and 6 seconds of exposure.

Oh, Tenerife, not La Palma. Whatever, both locations are superb.
