Imagine the world's largest volcanic erosion crater. Then imagine an island with an incredible area to height ratio: low area of 708 square km and the 12 km wide "caldera de taburiente" with it's 2445 m high roque de los muchachos peak... or the near 2000 m high Deseada volcanic twin peaks on the ruta de los Volcanes... Combine that with beautiful starry skies - and you have La Palma (see en.wikipedia.org/wiki/La_Palma).
My new TimeLapse project "The Island" is dedicated to this beautiful and lovely Island of the Canaries... Note: this is my second TL project, the first one - "Black Hole Sun" - was reviewed nicely on NAT GEO daily news newswatch.nationalgeographic.com/2011/05/26/new-mountain-timelapse-a-soundgarden-of-night-lights/)
"The Island" was filmed by me alone during the first week of August 2011, less than 10 hrs sleep the whole week!
The great song for this video comes from Epic Soul Factory, "Titan", found on Soundcloud: soundcloud.com/epic-soul-factory/titan
