Incredible Aerial Photos of New York City

NYCaerial3small.jpg

Prepare yourself for a pretty special photographic experience.

Legendary photographer Vincent Laforet recently embarked upon a high altitude night flight on a helicopter, and used his vantage point to capture this incredible series of photographs of New York City.

The images were taken whilst hanging from an open door of a helicopter flying at 7,500 feet - a height at which "helicopters are not meant to live" and above all of the aircraft landing at New York's three airports. It took special clearance to make the journey, together with a range of high end equipment to capture the images - but we can safely say that it was worth it.

Take a look at six of the many stunning images below, and be sure to click on each one to see a larger version. Meanwhile, head to storehouse.co for a full story of the flight and visit Laforet's website for the full set and to enquire about prints.
