During a 4 day trip through the “Picos” photographer Daniel Santos captured this beautiful timelapse.

A year ago I captured these images during a 4 day trip through the “Picos”… It was not a planned thing, I just grabbed the opportunities as they came along. The scenes presented here were photographed during car stops along the road, from the hotel window in Cabrales and during a fabulous 17mi (28km) trekking with a camera mounted on a 6in (15cm) articulate tripod.
The panoramic movement was achieved with a Skywatcher telescope head and an Arduino board running a program that I had coded myself. 4 days to capture the scenes and more than a year to edit it little by little and at space… But the movie finally saw the light of day…
