Last month, photographic daredevil Vincent Laforet took to the skies—way, way up there—to capture some of the most incredible photos of New York City we've ever seen.

After his previous high-flying shoot, Laforet regaled readers about how terrifying it was to be at such heights in a helicopter (a vehicle that, arguably, should not be flying at an altitude of 7,500 feet).

He cited that one veteran pilot actually refused the "photo mission," and backed out.

At the altitude, Laforet stated, he was flying above commercial jetliners landing at New York airports.

Then, he decided to do the whole thing again—in fabulous Las Vegas—at altitudes of over 10,000 feet.

As tech journalists, we've been to Vegas plenty of times (mostly for International CES), but Laforet's photos bathe the city in a different light.

I've never seen Sin City rendered in such neat, meticulous detail; the photos make the city look like a miniature scale model, and are truly stunning.

Laforet's full photo shoot is available for public perusal as of this morning. You can check out the full shoot on Storehouse, and may also want to check out Laforet's personal blog or his website.
