Milky Way

Terje Sorgjerd has done it again.  He is the photographer behind the viral video The Aurora and here Sogjerd captures the Milky Way over El Teide, Spain’s highest mountain. Click through to watch, and get details on how the video was made. (video)


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.

Just sit back and enjoy. It’s simply stunning.



 Sorgjerd writes, “The goal was to capture the beautiful Milky Way galaxy along with one of the most amazing mountains I know El Teide.”

I think the goal was accomplished!

Music is by Ludovico Einaudi, the song is called “Nuvole bianche”
