Just breathtaking. That’s about all we can say about this short video by Terjes shot atop El Teide, Spain’s highest mountain (3,718 metres) over 7 days between April 4th and 11th, 2011. It gives you a frontrow seat to some stunning nightly activity, awash with colour, light and action.

The Norwegian photographer, Mr TSO, said of the experience: ‘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’.
