A Full Day Compressed Into One Image

The patience and dedication it takes to make these amazing images is something I don’t possess. But I’m really glad that Stephen Wilkes has the patience, because his work is incredible, and fascinating, and fun to see. His high-definition images are made up of up to 1000 frames taken from the same exact spot during the span of an entire day, and then painstakingly stitched together to form a seamless scene. Like compressing time-lapse video into a single photo, but without the blurring or overlap or wonkiness that might show up. Click on these images to see them large, they are truly stunning. Via Wired:
