Scenes from Tenerife

I simply cannot get enough of these time-lapse videos. 

El Cielo de Canarias / Canary sky - Tenerife from Daniel López on Vimeo.

Make sure you have HD set to on.

Watching the clouds surge and ebb like water is amazing. If you watch carefully there are a couple of cool bonuses: a "green flash" when the sun sets, a double rainbow, and a lenticular cloud. 

Now I want to visit the Canaries.


  1. Gran Canaria is also amazing - four very different geological/habitat regions on one island. But the resorts are appalling - not hard to imagine what places such as Playa del Ingles are like.

  2. The wife and Mrs ERJ went there last fall for a wedding. (MY Irish cousin married a local girl from there). We stayed on for a while afterwards and explored many of the islands. Unlike anywhere else on the planet. Well worth the time, effort and expense of getting there.

  3. I realize now that I just said "the wife and Mrs ERJ". I in fact do not have multiple wives, only a lack of caffeine in my bloodstream.

  4. Very nice! Very similar to the work of Terje Sorgjerd http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rk6_hdRtJOE

    Thanks for posting

  5. this was nasa's astronomy pic of the day recently. They've got some great stuff.

  6. The standing wave cloud formation at 2:26 is probably the coolest shot in the whole thing.

    And I WANT whatever mount drives they were using to get those smooth, SLOW pans and tilts.
