Filmed and Edited by: Juan Carlos Cortina

This cover image from the Asturian viewpoint of Angrilu is the mark of a trip that includes three years of photographs in Asturias in collaboration with the Oviedo photographer David Álvarez Velicia. Touring the coasts of Ribadesella, Llanes, Luarca, the Picos de Europa and the national parks, the most hidden viewpoints, the strangest rock formations of the Cantabrian coast, a work has been born that shows the beauty of the landscapes of Asturias. The timelapse scenes show an augmented reality with which the passing of time is perceived in a few seconds and Asturias is a unique place to perform this technique.

The Principality of Asturias, a region of northwest Spain, is known for its rugged coast, mountains, religious sites and medieval architecture. Regional capital Oviedo’s San Salvador Cathedral houses religious relic the Shroud of Oviedo. Nearby on Mt. Naranco stands the 9th-century churches of San Miguel de Lillo and Santa María del Naranco, the latter originally built as a palace for King Ramiro I of Asturias.
