Time Lapse of Night Sky Over London Riots

This time lapse of the night sky over Tottenham during the London riots shows helicopters, search lights, smoke, and flares all night before the sun finally begins to rise. U.K.-based culture blog itdrewitself shot the film on a Canon 7D, taking 2.5 second exposures every three seconds all night. Of the riots, they said, “Watching the fires from our flat the other night was a surreal experience — we just hope it ends soon.”
