One of the most incredible collections of photographs captured in the sky of Canary Islands are an allegory for the spirit. These Pictures are fullness with a majestic beauty, that makes us to understand the greatness of the universe where we lived, and how small we are infront of the unknown of the world to compare to our daily routine.

Norwegian photographer Terje Sørgjerd explained in details how he managed to make this postacard of the Sky. 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 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.

A large sandstorm hit the Sahara Desert on the 9th April  and at approx 3am in the night the sandstorm hit me, making it nearly impossible to see the sky with my own eyes.

Interestingly enough my camera was set for a 5 hour sequence of the milky way during this time and I was sure my whole scene was ruined. To my surprise, my camera had managed to capture the sandstorm which was backlit by Grand Canary Island making it look like golden clouds. The Milky Way was shining through the clouds, making the stars sparkle in an interesting way. So if you ever wondered how the Milky Way would look through a Sahara sandstorm, look at 00:32.

Terje Sorgjerd video 

Una ventana al universo “La Montaña” las más bellísimas imágenes del universo.

Esta colección de fotografías capturadas en el cielo en las Islas Canarias son una alegoría para el espíritu. Su plenitud y belleza majestuosa nos hace comprender la grandeza del universo en que vivimos, y lo pequeño que somos ante un mundo casi desconocido para nosotros en nuestra rutina diaria.

El  fotógrafo noruego Terje Sorgjerd, quien se desplazó al Teide con la idea de realizar un time lapse de la Vía Láctea (recordemos que las Islas Canarias cuentan con uno de los mejores observatorios astronómicos del hemisferio norte). Durante días estuvo recopilando material y realizando tomas, tanto del cielo nocturno como de los paisajes de la montaña.

Él mismo nos cuenta en su página de Vimeo que mientras estuvo allí se produjo una tormenta de arena en el desierto del Sahara, que alcanzó la isla en la noche del 9 de abril. Lejos de arruinar la toma (como él mismo pensaba), ese fenómeno ha dado lugar a unas imágenes espectaculares: la Vía Láctea a través de nubes doradas, generadas por la arena en suspensión (puedes verlas a partir del minuto 00:32 del video).
