Sometimes we all need a little food for our soul. The majority of us live away from nature in cities and suburbs, surrounded by buildings. Sometimes we get out to a park, enjoy some hiking or go camping but those times are often few and far between.
The Milky Way video below has been very popular recently. The images are from the highest mountain in Spain, El Teide. They are gorgeous views of the Milky Way, sunsets, clouds rolling like waves and breathtaking nature shots. The images were filmed over 7 days in early April 2011. The video pairs these shots in a time-lapse fashion with beautiful music. The result will fill your soul.
Watching "The Mountain" brought a smile to my face and a feeling of peace and joy to me. Your soul will let out a great big aaaaahhh. The video is only a few minutes long and it is well worth your time.
These images are from Norwegian landscape photographer Terje Sorgjerd. For more information on the photographer and the story behind this video check out the interview from the Today Show. One interesting tidbit is there was a sandstorm during one of the nights and Terje was sure none of the video turned out. Surprisingly the camera caught the images with extra interesting lighting from the sandstorm.
Keep a link to this video handy for when you are stressed out and need grounding. Now that I have found the videos from this photographer I plan to watch them often. Who couldn't use a 3 minute boost to their level of peace and joy.
