Magnificent England and the UK From Above

Photographer Jason Hawkes has been making fascinating aerial images since 1991. With a gyro-stabilized camera, he takes photos directly from the open door of a helicopter. Hawkes has covered subjects around the world, but specializes in aerial shots of the United Kingdom. Once more, he’s been kind enough to share some of his recent photos with us here:

One thought on “Magnificent England and the UK From Above

  1. I love the dramatic fall away of land on the Brecon Beacons photograph. Some fantastic shots there.
    I’ll bet gyro-stabilised camera mounts and helicopter hire aren’t cheap though.
