This breathtaking photo of Las Vegas was taken by famous photographer Vincent Laforet.
In 2002, Laforet won the Pulitzer Prize. He was awarded it for his pictures of people in Pakistan and Afghanistan suffering during the post 9/11 conflicts.
He toldHuh Magazine: "It took us 45 minutes to get far enough away from downtown and to an elevation of 10,800 feet in our helicopter - or 8,799 feet above Las Vegas which itself is 2,001 feet above sea level."
It's a follow-up to his acclaimed series of pictures of New York from the air.
He's apparently planning to shoot next in London, Rio de Janeiro and Hong Kong.
If these images are anything to go by, the next sets will be unmissable.
