Time lapse wonders

Some beautifully breathtaking time-lapse shorts by Terje Sørgjerd (TSO Photography).

"The goal was to capture the beautiful Milky Way galaxy along with one of the most amazing mountains I know, El Teide...if you ever wondered how the Milky Way would look through a Sahara sandstorm, look at 00:32"

"I spent a week capturing one of the biggest aurora borealis shows in recent years. Shot in and around Kirkenes and Pas National Park bordering Russia, at 70 degree north and 30 degrees east. Temperatures around -25 Celsius"

"My favorite natural phenomenon is one I do not even know the name is a natural phenomenon occurring 2-4 weeks before you can see the Midnight Sun. The Sunset and Sunrise are connected in one magnificent show of color and light lasting from 8 to 12 hours...At 1:06 you see a single scene from day to night to day which is from 9pm to 7am. Think about that for a minute.. 10 hours with light like that."

Save the Cerrado

Last week WWF launched their new campaign to Save the Cerrado savannah from the ravages of soya production. It's a diverse habitat covering 21% of Brazil and home to many unique species, yet is often overlooked on the global conservation stage in favour of it's more famous neighbour, the Amazon.

Check out this amazing video performed by South American magician El Mago Serpico and produced by the clever people at Neo. Sign up and urge your supermarket to take action by agreeing to buy their soy grown to Round Table on Responsible Spy (RTRS) standards here. It only takes a minute and Waitrose have already committed to the target, so it's working!
