On Friday July the 20th, 2018, Keith was in a helicopter flying over Leicester.
Fortunately he was carrying a canon EOS 5Ds 50 megapixel camera with the Canon EF 70-200 F2.8L IS lens – together capable of taking exceedingly high resolution photos of the city below.
This collection of photos shows some of the highlights, and is intended to give anyone who knows the city a very different angle on its 2000 years of history.
From Roman ruins to modern construction work the city layout and history is there to see.
For a 16″ x 24″ glossy print, we’re doing a special price of £65 (UK ‘signed for’ P&P is £10 for up to 3 prints)
All photos are available as very big prints – these images should easily print at 60″ x 40″ – for custom sizes and quantity discounts (over 3), please just give Keith a call
Click on any photo to enlarge, or see the gallery at the foot of the article. These are shots from one trip over the city and are a one-off set.
