Dazzling Timelapse: Canary Skies

by Nancy Atkinson on May 19, 2011

El Cielo de Canarias / Canary sky – Tenerife from Daniel López on Vimeo.

Tenerife, Canary Islands is home to several telescopes and at 2,000 meters above sea level, it claims one of the best skies on the planet. This incredibly stunning timelapse video from astrophotographer Daniel Lopez captures the nocturnal and crepuscular beauty of the island, showing the natural movement of the earth, stars, clouds, Sun and Moon. Lopez worked over a year to capture all possible shades and landscapes, pulling out all the stops by using several different timelapse techniques. Lopez promises more videos are coming, as he says this is the first in a series to capture the beauty of each of the Canary Islands.

Find more information at Lopez’s website, and see more videos at his Vimeo page.
