Amazing Long Exposures of Rotating Helicopter Blades by Andreas Feininger

In 1949, American photographer Andreas Feininger captured these incredible photos of U.S. Navy helicopters as they took off from the ground into the night sky in Anacostia, Maryland. As the light-tipped blades rotated rapidly, Feininger captured the movement with long exposures against the dark night sky.

Check these amazing images out.
