Yesterday marked the first day of spring, and to pay tribute to the change in seasons we’re featuring one of the most stunning landscape timelapses we have ever seen. Filmed on Mount Teide in the Canary Islands, this short film is a breathtaking reminder of the beauty in nature. With jaw dropping shots of the Milky Way to swaths of yellow flowers, “The Mountain” is bound to inspire you to embark on an outdoor springtime adventure of your own.
From the description:
“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.
The goal was to capture the beautiful Milky Way galaxy along with one of the most amazing mountains I know El Teide. I have to say this was one of the most exhausting trips I have done. There was a lot of hiking at high altitudes and probably less than 10 hours of sleep in total for the whole week. Having been here 10-11 times before I had a long list of must-see locations I wanted to capture for this movie, but I am still not 100% used to carrying around so much gear required for time-lapse movies.”
