Spectacular Footage!

This is a stunning time lapse by Terje Sorgjerd! I never really had a desire to visit Spain until seeing this! From his Vimeo page: This was filmed between 4th and 11th April 2011. I had the pleasure of visiting El Teide. Spain´s highest mountain @(3715m) is one of the best places in the world to photograph the stars and… Continue reading

Today, with the festivities… Continue reading

Sadly, Zelda passed away… Continue reading
