Astonishing Aerial Shots Of Las Vegas

What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas. Unless it’s caught on the telescopic lens of a Canon 1DX, in which case it definitely doesn't.
 
So it’s a collective sigh of relief for raucous bachelor parties all round then, that for his latest project, photographer Vincent Laforet has profiled the famous gambling mecca from high above, following his similarly astonishing series of New York City shots in some style.
 
For our money, his latest effort is the best yet, appearing even more dramatic as giant neon blocks of colour appear in the middle of the desert like a disco mirage - even a sight as mundane as an electricity grid has been captured magnificently by the snapper, who packed a Mamiya Leaf Credo 50 MP alongside a Canon 1DX as he hovered above the skies in a helicopter.
 
Some snaps look as if they've bent space and time, while others simply like they're in another world completely.
 
Come to think of it, this was probably how Elton John saw Vegas at the peak of his, erm, more experiential years.
