A time-lapse video of Ben Nevis, Fort William, Scotland on Vimeo. On the afternoon of 12 December 2010 we began filming the end of a beautiful day in Fort William and specifically a scene of Ben Nevis, Carn Mor Dearg and Aonach Mor mountains from Tomacharich just outside Fort William. A rising moon and the first stars give way to a moonlit night and a celestial heaven with meteorites, commercial aircraft and interestingly the flights of an RAF search and rescue mission around the north face of Ben Nevis. This short film ends as the winter sun very slowly rises behind the mountains around 10 am. The original soundtack on this short film was produced by Miriam Iorwerth.
