The Mountain - Amazing Time Lapse Video of the Milky Way

Nothing much happening in the Anime world today (it's summer after all), so here is a little something off topic.

I have a little photography hobby on the side (which I pretty much suck at) which causes me to follow a few photography blogs. Check this out. Terje Sorgjerd has captured the Milky Way in time lapse over El Teide, which is Spain's highest mountain. Filmed between April 4 and April 11, 2011, the individual frames were shot using a Canon 5D Mark II with a Canon 17mm TSE, Canon 16-35mm II, Canon 24/1.4II, and Sigma 12-24mm.

As you watch the video to get to catch a glimpse of how the earth feels as it falls through space. Just sit back and enjoy. It's amazing:

Music is by Ludovico Einaudi, the song is called "Nuvole bianche"

He has also previous done a shorter video called 'The Aurora' which he shot in and around Kirkenes and Pas National Park bordering Russia in temps around -10 to -15 degrees below zero:

Music is sung by Lisa Gerrard from the Gladiator Movie Soundtrack.
