London from an aerial perspective...

Posted on by Lauren M

Since there’s a significant delay in the U.S. coverage of the Opening Ceremony for the London 2012 Olympics, we thought we’d share some related media to enjoy in the meanwhile…

So, here’s some great aerial footage of the Olympic host city at dusk, from which many of London's noteworthy buildings can be viewed. (credit: Jason Hawkes)

If you're interested in more details and information on the new architecture built specifically for the 2012 Olympics, make sure to check out last week’s post on ‘Greening the Games’.

Otherwise, for those in the States, hope you enjoy the show later tonight, and in the meanwhile, stay up to date with current photos posted at the official London 2012 website (the source of the images below), which should be updated throughout the duration of the Games.
