El Teide

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!

Baking session

For their new advertising campaign, the Proximity BBDO agency has proposed a concept both proactive and experimental, targeting foodies and digital mums. This series of four short videos presents the “Couleur Café” saga staging red, pink, yellow and pistachio green recipes.

I have a preference for the pink petit chou… but what about YOUR favorite one?

NASA shots

NASA Goddard Space Flight Center has recently posted some new pictures that can make reference to the award-winning movie, Gravity.

Their Flickr has been launched in 2008 and you can discover breathtaking pictures of their NASA astronauts and missions, the Earth, and incredible videos of the Sun.

The photographs are literally out of this world. It’s extraordinarily humbling to look at images of our planet rotating far below the International Space Station, and to think of the fact that all life as we know it is just a tiny part of this small blue globe floating in the vast cosmos.

How courageous are the astronauts to keep blazing forward in their exploration of the universe around us.

Juxtapose

Daniel Schwarz highlights the staggering, seasonal faults in Google Maps’ landscapes in his series Juxtapose. This series of images have been directly taken directly from Google Maps, and expose distant places, far from society, shown simultaneously under the force of contrary seasons and weather phenomena at varying times.
The photographies arise from defects which are created automatically when Google Maps’ algorithm stitches images of updated photos with prior recorded ones together in a grid- like view. The glitched images force viewers to interrogate how technology changes our understanding of time, space and place.

Google Maps is the world’s most widely used mapping service. It influences our perception and understanding of the world and its geography, and since the technology was introduced in 2005, has become a ubiquitous day-to-day tool. Modern life is now unthinkable without it.

"Although the satellite images give users a godlike power in jumping from 
one continent to the next in the blink of an eye, they are also highly 
abstracted from time, nature and their interrelationships.
Google Maps images are not updated in real time, but instead stem from 
several months or years old datasets. Their exact dates remain unknown to 
the user."  Daniel Schwartz
