The Mountain

Terje Sorgjerd has posted another timelapse video called The Mountain, with stunning shots of the stars from Teide in the Canary Islands.

Earlier this month he visited the area, a mountain which is one of the prime locations in the world to view the stars.

The Teide Observatories have been there since 1964 and host various telescopes from around the world due to the optimal astronomical viewing conditions.

In this short film Sorgjerd captures the Milky Way galaxy, the mountains of the region and even a sandstorm in the Sahara desert backlit by Grand Canaria.
