Amazing Photos of London at Night

You have to check out some amazing photos of London, as seen from above at night by photographer Jason Hawkes. If you're a person, like myself, who has flying dreams, these photos will have a special significance.

Hawkes shot the photos with a camera attached to gyro-stabilized mounts while strapped to the side of a helicopter, using Nikon gear and either a 14-24mm or a 70-200mm lens. Even with that, the low light and heavy vibrations can make things difficult, so he often shoots connected to his MacBook Pro to check the sharpness of the images on the spot.

For the full effect click on the photo on the right to see it in a larger size.
