Airplane time lapse and long exposures

Today being Friday and not having anything to do I thought I’d take on a suggestion my coworker Dave suggested and try my hand and doing airplane tim e apses. I live in Whittier which is pretty close to being under the flightpath of LAX airport. Having this to my advantage I walked outside my apartment and went ahead and setup my tripod and brought out a few folding chairs out and weirded out my neighbors.

Pointed my camera at the sky

Looking north you can see the airplanes fly above the tree in the photo above. They fly in from right side of the phot0 over to the left side just clearing the tree.

I didn’t get enough photos to do a time lapse so here is a gif of the photos above 🙂
