THESE amazing aerial pictures reveal how London's skyline has expanded over the last 15 years.

Aerial photographer Jason Hawkes recently captured a set of stunning images of London from a helicopter.




Hawkes captured the skyline matching the angles with photographs he took above the capital back in the mid-noughties.

His birds-eye-view shots show how some areas in the city have had drastic changes including the building of now London's tallest skyscraper – The Shard.

Canary Wharf has expanded with more high-rise buildings and east London's Olympic Park, now known as Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, has flourished in just 15 years.




Hawkes, who took the pictures from 2005 to 2007, told the MailOnline that his favourite view is "at dusk looking West through the City cluster with the Thames meandering in the background".

He added: "My favourite building in the City of London is the Leadenhall, just love it.




"Around Battersea, Nine Elms and Vauxhall the whole area has completely transformed in the past few years.

"There the new U.S. Embassy by Kieran Timberlake looks just incredible to my eye. I'd love to visit it on the ground."
