As we plot a video diary of a flight over Greystones, we thought it might be wise to pull all those aerial shots of the town taken over the decades into one easy, digestible post.
Just to prove that, even for the birds way up in the sky, aren’t we only feckin’ gorgeous.
We have more in the archives, which we’ll be adding over the coming week – we’re doing a major clean-up of the thousands of shots added over the last three years – but these are the ones close to the top of the pile.
Interesting to see that the streets haven’t changed all that much, with just the harbour putting on a little muscle without actually losing its overall shape.
We should have that video of the town flyover once we get over to the Newcastle Airfield, and convince them that Max is a safe & trustworthy passenger. As a taster, here’s a wonderful April 2016 aerial trek of The Cliff Walk.
In the meantime, let’s go up, up and away, in our beautiful GG balloon…
