Breathtaking large-format pictures of London at night


The Big Picture, Alan Taylor's always stunning large-format picture blog for the Boston Globe, is featuring amazingly detailed bird's-eye views of London at night by photographer Jason Hawkes, a follow-up to a prior post. Acrophobics beware!

Jason shot these images with a camera attached to gyro-stabilized mounts from a Eurocopter AS355, hired out at around £1150 (GBP) per hour, 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, Jason says "I often shoot tethered to my MacBook Pro to check the sharpness of the images whilst I shoot."
