Video of the day: Sunshine and stars in Spanish skies

The Mountain from Terje Sorgjerd on Vimeo.

We found this amazing time lapse video, taken from Spain's highest mountain, on - and we fell in love.

Made by Norweigian Landscape gardener Terje Sorgjerd, 'The Mountain' was filmed on El Teide in Tenerife - one of the best places in the world to view the stars. It's also home to the Teide Observatories.

The video was shot between April 4th-11th, 2011. According the video's Vimeo description, the photographer didn't spend much time sleeping during this week-long shoot. With stunning views of the stars, the trees, and even a sandstorm that rolled through during the shoot, watching this video is an easy way to brighten your day in just a few minutes.
