The Dark Island from Nicholas Buer on Vimeo:

This film was shot over 11 nights in March on La Palma, Canary Islands.

La Palma is often called ‘Europes’ Hawaii’ as it has all the ingredients for a perfect night sky cocktail; altitude, dry air and a lack of light pollution. These elements when combined make for a stunning night sky. Because of it’s clean air and clear skies many of the worlds top observatories have facilities on top of the island.

The main goal of this film was to capture the Milky Way rising from the horizon at a low angle across the sky…
