Images taken by a British photographer show the dazzling lights of the planet's most famous skyline in spectacular detail - using state of the art technology



British photographer Jason Hawkes from Henley-on-Thames, Oxon., captured the series from a helicopter using a cutting edge gyroscopic mount



New York City boasts some of the planet's most famous landmarks - and this spectacular series shows them in all their glorious nocturnal neon-lit detail



This image shows in stunning detail a northward view of Madison Avenue - alive and jam-packed with the glare of headlights - flanked by the Empire State Building to the west and the Chrysler Building at night



Included in the collection is the world-famous Time Square shot from 1,300 ft and showing hundreds of tiny night time revellers far below



Also seen is the Statue of Liberty with the glow of Manhattan island forming a backdrop. Shots like these have only recently become a possibility through advances in technology



The device is essentially a tripod with six sets of spinning gyros, contained inside three egg-shaped cases, that rotate extremely quickly and stabilises the camera for perfect night-time photography



Before it was invented it meant that nocturnal aerial shots like these were impossible and all photographers could get was a blurry picture. "It's only really in the past couple of years that we have been able to get night-time shots from the air in this detail," said Jason



"Before, the cameras just couldn't cope with it. With little light you had to use camera settings with very high film speed which created 'noise'. It made the images grainy and pretty ugly"
