Want to shoot some abstract, eye-popping aerial footage? Just bring a camera drone to one of China’s busiest roadways when there’s a major traffic jam.
The video above shows drone footage and photos during an insane traffic jam outside Beijing, China, this past week.
Here’s an aerial photo of the scene that was tweeted by People’s Daily, the official newspaper of the Chinese Communist Party:

The jam happens during one of China’s busiest tourist periods, the week-long National Day celebration in which millions of tourists take trips around the country. It looks like the perfect scene for a multi-million-dollar Andreas Gursky fine art photo.
