“Everest” Is A Beautiful Time Lapse Tribute To The Himalayas Highest Mountain

Everest is a mesmerizing time lapse film shot at night by Elia Saikal. You don’t see such time lapse clips very often.

Elia says:

These time lapse Images were captured as high as 6200m (camp 2) above sea level on Mt. Everest. We slept at 6000m for three consecutive nights on the summit of Mt. Lobuche East waiting for a glimpse of Everest from that vantage point. Around 11pm on the 2nd night, the skies opened up and the top of the world revealed herself in all of her glory.

No where else on the planet have I ever seen the Milky Way so clear, so vivid and so very much alive. It takes a great deal of discipline to stay up all night capturing the magic for the world to experience. Cameras freeze.Shutters freeze. Batteries freeze. Humans freeze. The high altitude environment is debilitating at best. Your body is taking a constant beating by the low levels of oxygen in the atmosphere. The higher you climb of course, the worse this becomes.

Elia used a Canon EOS 1D C (canon rumors), two EOS 5D Mark III (canon rumors), an EOS 5Ds R (canon rumors), and various lenses (24mm, 16mm, 11-24mm) to shot the clip.
