They say a picture is worth a thousand words, and if that's the case then one of Richard Silver's shots, which manages to show the transition from daylight to dark in a single photo, must be worth a whole lot more.

The American artist has produced a stunning portfolio featuring some of the most famous buildings and landmarks in the world, from the Suleymaniye Mosque in Istanbul and the Houses of Parliament in London, to the Beijing National Stadium (above) and the Colosseum in Rome.

After shooting up to 60 photos of the landmark over a few hours as day turns to night, Richard splices them together to create this unique effect. Here are a few of our favourite shots from his collection:
