        This timelapse was filmed while on a hiking trip to the island of La Palma, Canary Islands in the summer of 2013. I spent two nights camping along the GR131 Trail atop the crest of the Caldera de Taburiente, not far from the Roque de Los Muchachos Observatories on August 6th and 9th. Please note that wild camping is officially not permitted on the island. Do so at your own risk. It is imperative that one use only red light at night anywhere near the observatories and in a direction away from (even deeper red filtered light if illuminating foreground objects in photographs, as used in the first sequence). The peak I chose was close yet far away enough to be discreet and unobtrusive. It is strictly forbidden to camp, let alone be on Roque de Los Muchachos from 2000 - 0800 hrs unless associated or given specific authority by the IAC. This short movie consists of four timelapse sequences, two shot per night. Sky conditions were favourable with no moon and minimal turbulence. The only drawback was the orange glow near the horizon in the direction of the Caldera caused by the Calima phenomenon. Weather conditions were tolerable with light winds and cool temperatures. The view of the Milky Way was breathtaking ! The growing intensity of the Perseid Meteor Shower as seen especially in the fourth sequence near morning twilight was certainly a treat. Shooting these celestial timelapses took a lot of planning and patience. On the first night I was already tired and dizzy after hiking 24 km along the GR131 Trail all day from El Pilar (https://vimeo.com/74318509) with a heavy backpack filled with camera / timelapse gear. Thanks to my wife Brenda for all her patience, inspiration and helping me carry our supplies and my equipment. The second night my wife dropped me off along the road leading to the observatories, where I then hiked a short distance to the nearby peak. I did not get a wink of sleep either night as I was worried about equipment malfunction, battery drainage and condensation on the lens. I became totally immersed in the scene and situ however, leaving me in a contemplative mood and just simply astonished. Equipment: Canon 550d Sigma 10mm f/2.8 fish-eye lens Pocketslider dolly (Pocketslider.de) Hahnel Giga T2 Pro intervalometer Velbon QHD-53D tripod and MeFoto backpacker tripod Settings: Manual, ISO 1600, f/2.8, 25 second exposures, 15 second intervals. It was a toss up between high ISO and exposure to keep graininess to an acceptable minimum ... and as for my antiquated and now abused 550d combined with the Sigma fish-eye ... it still did an o.k. job I think :-) Next time ... full frame body !! A total of 1600 RAW files edited and processed using Lightroom, LRTimelapse and Final Cut Pro. Music: "Love and Loss" by Two Steps from Hell. The Island of La Palma is beautiful in all aspects. It's a great place to hike and perfect for viewing and photographing the heavens. The night skies are protected from light, radio and air traffic pollution according to the "Sky Act" (http://www.starlight2007.net/pdf/SLeng.pdf) A timelapse I shot of La Palma can be seen at https://vimeo.com/72705307 A video of our trip to the Roque de Los Muchachos Observatory and tour of the GranTeCan Telescope can be seen at https://vimeo.com/73063516 Videos of our hikes can be seen at https://vimeo.com/album/2498182 Cheers!

        • Hiking the GR131 (Part 2: El Pilar - Roque de Los Muchachos)

          GR131: El Pilar - Roque de Los Muchachos "Superhike" August 6 - 7, 2013 Brenda and I continued along the "El Bastion" or "Transvulcania" Trail from where we left off the previous day (Fuencaliente - El Pilar ... https://vimeo.com/74169899). The trail on this section becomes extremely rugged, steep and rocky in places except for the dirt road leading out of Refugio El Pilar. It would actually have been easier to hike this in reverse as it would have been a downhill gradient. The views get spectacular as one progresses north on the spine and west along the crest of the Caldera de Taburiente. Although clear and sunny, the view into the Caldera was somewhat obscured by the Calima phenomenon. We camped overnight discreetly along the crater rim in order to view and photograph / timelapse the Milky Way (a sleepless night indeed). It was a night to remember ... the night skies were stunning and the weather was tolerable, albeit chilly in the early hours. We continued early the next morning toward Roque de Los Muchachos (2426 M above sea level), passing a fleet of observatories. Muchachos is accessible by car as it's a little ways past the observatory, and parking is available there. We decided not to continue to Mirador El Time due to time, lack of sleep and the fact that I wanted to return instead to the same peak two nights later and again take advantage photographing the Milky Way (two are shown from this hikes campout in this video). To sum it up, this was an epic hike ! The final portion of the Transvulcania: https://vimeo.com/74065106 On a return trip we will definitely complete the GR131 from Faro - Fuencaliente in the south and Roque de Los Muchachos to Mirador El Time in the west (the final stretch from El Time to Tazacorte we completed a couple of days earlier ... https://vimeo.com/74065106). For detailed information regarding this section of the GR131 please refer to http://www.senderosdelapalma.com/in/senderos/public_ficha_pub.php?ID_sendero=zoCvqDbBEkFEGwswxvzr A good article to read as well at http://www.holiday-lapalma.com/blog/read_71090/walking-the-gr131-el-bastn.html For information on the Transvulcania marathon see http://www.transvulcania.com/index.php/en/ Our La Palma hiking holiday was co-ordinated by Ann and David at Holiday La Palma (holiday-lapalma.com). During our latter stay and while hiking the GR131 we stayed at a lovely country house (holiday-lapalma.com/casalourdes.html) see our other hiking / timelapse videos of La Palma here: https://vimeo.com/album/2498182 Video shot using the GoPro Hero3 (full - wide HD 1920x1080, 60fps), edited with Final Cut Pro and Quicktime Images shot by my wife Brenda with the Panasonic Lumix LX7 Music: "Meditteranean Flower" (Chill Version) & "Shine On Me" by Sunlounger

                Al fin tuve el privilegio de ir a una de las Islas Canarias para realizar un curso. Además, a la más impresionante, y sobre un tema que me encanta, la montaña. Allí, varios guardas y agentes de los parques nacionales, le perdimos un poco el miedo a las alturas. Mares de nubes espectaculares desde el Roque los los Muchachos, y vertiginoso rápeles de 100 metros desde la Punta de los Roques.

                  Començarem des del Roque de Los Muchachos (pujarem amb taxi) i seguirem les marques de la GR 131 fins al Far de Fuencaliente, fent dos nits, una al refugi lliure de Punta de Los Roques i la segona nit a Fuencaliente (Los Canarios). En total 62 km. entre cresteries, boscos i terra volcánica, un conjunt de diferents paisatges en pocs kilòmetres. Com a mostra d'una tercera part del que vaig vore en terra de guanches us deixe el següent el vídeo.
