Terje Sørgjerd is a passionate landscape photographer from Norway . He has created “The Mountain” which is a beautiful time lapse video shot from Spain´s highest mountain, El Teide with some wonderful photos of stars and nature. One of the world´s best observatories, Teide Observatories is located on this mountain and as you see the photos of the Milky Way you’ll understand why.
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.
Terje Sørgjerd has been published many times in some of the world biggest press and media outlets including CNN, NBC, USA Today, Reuters, Discovery Channel, NatGeo, The Guardian, Wall Street Journal, Weather Channel and The Washington Post, Good Morning America, etc.
Enjoy the marvellous journey!
