Long exposure photo of a plane taking off…

0925096 has an incredible long exposure photo of a UPS plane taking off, it looks like a road in the sky… – “N306UP (cn 27759/622) Cleared for takeoff with a southbound turnout. Runway number and piano keys visible! [Canon 20D, 50mm f/1.8 MK-II] Taken @ Des Moines – International (DSM / KDSM)” [via] – Link.

    Not so much “time-lapse” as “long exposure”.

    It *is* a very cool pic though, shows that even the “Thrifty Fifty” can take an exceptional picture. always has tons of awesome pictures of aircraft.

    That looks incredibly steep, wonder what the actual angle is.
