Breathtaking Aerial Footage of London

This incredible London flyover footage, taken by aerial photographer Jason Hawkes, shows the huge city in a way most of us haven’t seen before. Through Mr. Hawkes’ lens you begin to grasp the true scale of the soon-to-be Olympic city; including some beautiful dusk shots of the Shard, which is now the tallest building in Europe.

Gizmodo’s Jesus Diaz wasn’t far off when he said that the video could very well be part of Tron Legacy or Blade Runner.

    Sorry, what’s so incredible?  Aerial photography has been around for a century!

    Very bland color run backwards. Nothing special in terms of what a pro videographer would do with a Cineflex. Stick to stills my friend.

    You can see aerial shots of London to cheesy dramatic music every week in the opening sequence to the Apprentice. And it’s shot much better, alas without the shard.

    The ShRd is the second highest building in Europe.

    It looks sinister, vile and decadent… And the music doesn’t help. Reminds me of Londra, the capital of the dark empire of Granbretan in Moorcock’s brilliant Hawkmoon trilogy…
