London by Night, From the Air : Fantastic Aerial Photography by Jason Hawkes

Jason Hawkes was the photographer for the memorable publication Prehistoric Britain from the Air, by Janet & Colin Bord, one of the most prized books in my personal library, which was instrumental in my writing of Stars Stones and Scholars, the cover of which is found in the right column of this LawPundit blog.

Hawkes recently outdid himself, creating a series of stunning aerial night photographs of London, England, UK.

These photographs have been reproduced at boston.com, the website of The Boston Globe, and are also found at the website of Jason Hawkes.
