These astonishing photos mean we can look down on the city like one of the peregrine falcons that live on York Minster.
They are all the work of Matthew King, a photographer whose drone shots are showing the city off from a whole new angle.
Matthew, 34, works in the audio visual specialists Wall Of Sound at Bishopthorpe. He was born in York but grew up in Malton from the age of 7, moving back ten years ago.
We asked Matthew a bit more about his remarkable pictures…
Places like Rowntree’s Wharf, Bootham Crescent, the racecourse, the nuclear bunker, Bishopthorpe Palace, the Odeon and even Clifton Bingo. That’s the tip of the iceberg the list can be as long as your arm.
In my opinion it’s virtually impossible to take a photo of a scene in York that isn’t interesting, we have beautiful buildings, admittedly some in their own unique way, all around us. I never go into town without a camera!
