Float Over London's Futuristic Cityscape at Night

If Mary Poppins were set in the world of Blade Runnerthis dizzying montage would be the intro sequence, and Jason Hawkes would be the cinematographer. The aerial photographer has been capturing stunning footage of London's glittering architecture, including the new Shard, from above during the run up to the 2012 Olympics. For a selection of his high-resolution still images, like the one below, see Alan Taylor's photo gallery on In Focus. Hawkes's books of aerial photography are available here
