Stunning timelapse video shows nature at its best (Terje Sorgjerd)

IT'S nature as you've never seen it before.

Norwegian photographer Terje Sorgjerd has spent a week snapping away on top of El Teide, Spain’s highest mountain.

The end result is a stunning timelapse video showing nature at its best.

The mountain is an ideal place for stargazing, according to Mr Sorgjerd, who filmed the Milky Way glittering in the night sky and even managed to catch a sandstorm passing through it.

“It is one of the best places in the world to photograph the stars and is also the location of Teide Observatories, considered to be one of the world’s best observatories,” Mr Sorgjerd said.
