This was filmed between 4th and 11th April 2011. I had the pleasure of visiting El Teide. Spain´s highest mountain @(3715m) 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.Read more here. Oh, and play the vid on full screen — it's beautiful.
The goal was to capture the beautiful Milky Way galaxy along with one of the most amazing mountains I know El Teide.
