Terje Sorgjerda, a Norwegian photographer and filmmaker, has created an impressive video with images from the highest mountain in Spain, El Teide. The film was shot between 4 and 11 April.

The highest mountain in Spain is the location of Teide Observatory, considered one of the best in the world.

On the site vimeo, where he posted the video, Terje Sorgjerda talks about making the video.

“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,” Sorgjerd writes.

The photographer describes how he managed to capture a sandstorm from the Sahara, which arrived on the mountain overnight.

“A large sandstorm hit the Sahara Desert on the 9th April (bit.ly/g3tsDW) and at approx 3 am in the night the sandstorm hit me, making it nearly impossible to see the sky with my own eyes. Interestingly enough my camera was set for a 5 hour sequence of the milky way during this time and I was sure my whole scene was ruined. To my surprise, my camera had managed to capture the sandstorm which was backlit by Grand Canary Island making it look like golden clouds,” Sorgjerda described.

The photos were taken from an altitude of 3718 m, on a mountain known as one of the best places in the world for photographing stars.
