When photographer Nate Bolt boarded a transatlantic flight, he doesn’t use medication to knock himself out and avoid the cardboard meals. Instead, he got creative. On a long-haul flight from San Francisco to Paris, the Air France crew kindly allowed Bolt to take regular photos from his window seat.
From takeoff at San Francisco International Airport to the landing at Paris-Charles de Gaulle Airport, Bolt captured images every two miles and created a time-lapse video of his journey. That’s 11 hours, 2,459 photos, and 5,576 miles compressed into two short minutes. He even witnessed a spectacular Aurora Borealis along the way.
