Stunning Timelapse “The Mountain” Shows Off Our Milky Way

In the above timelapse video, Terje Sorgjerd gives us an amazing glimpse from the top of El Teide – Spain’s highest mountain.  Just epic stuff.

This was filmed between 4th and 11th April 2011. I had the pleasure of visiting El Teide.  Spain´s highest mountain @(3718m) is one of the best places in the world to photograph the stars and is also the location of Teide Observatories, considered to be one of the world´s best observatories. -Terje Sorgjerd

The accompanying music is ‘Nuvolle Bianche’ by Ludovicio Einaudi. (I think that’s the proper spelling). It is available via iTunes.
