A quick Google search for “Los Angeles Timelapse” will result in a slew of breathtaking videos, but this recent visual by photographer Joe Capra is perhaps the most captivating — albeit very difficult to capture. The six-minute clip took two years to create and Capra had to stitch each frame individually. As far as gear goes, the LA native utilized a pair of 5D Mark IIIs, a custom-built rail system, a custom-built intervalometer, and a Ramper Pro, as well as two Canon 24-70mm, 24-105mm and 70-200mm lenses. Capra said of the meticulous process:

Shooting Pano LA has been the most ambitious, challenging, demanding, and rewarding project I have worked on to date. It was shot over a period of two years entirely in true panoramic form using two synced DSLR cameras side by side. The resulting panoramic timelapse footage comes in at a whopping 10K x 4K resolution when stitched. I did not shoot this film to achieve the extreme resolution. I shot it for the panoramic look, especially the compressed look you get when using long lenses.

Watch the impressive 10K by 4K video above and head over to the photographer’s official Vimeo page to check out more videos.
