8 hours of non-stop plane departures stitched into a single photograph

Nothing beats watching a plane take off (or land). It’s a mesmerizing experience if you’re an aviation enthusiast and even if you aren’t, you will still appreciate the spectacle of the massive metal flying machines. Mike Kelly is one of those enthusiasts and he also happens to be an architectural photographer.

Taking his camera out to the south complex at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX), he spent nearly eight hours trying to capture the goings of airliners. Then, he spent an additional eight hours in Photoshop stitching each shot together to create a jaw-dropping collage. The dual runways at LAX made for the perfect size and depth of each airplane. Check out some of the detailed shots below!
