la palma mike moloney john hooper iac observatory

Want to capture a stunning view of the night sky amidst an other-worldly landscape?

The island of La Palma was the destination of choice for director Mike Moloney and photographer John Hooper, who shot this 24-hour time-lapse near the IAC observatory, nearly 2400 metres above sea level. Featuring galaxies, a volcanic crater and abandoned telescope control rooms, it's part of a series that captures an entire day at different locations.

Moloney used a programmable camera head to create a 360-degree view of the area. But he ran into trouble at 4.30 am when a gust of wind blew over his camera rig, smashing the camera head. The rest of the time-lapse had to break free of the rotational format but still gives a creative take on the surroundings.
