And on a Lighter Note...

...though still death-related, if you want to get technical....

I found this very cool site outlining 100-year old aerial shots of Stonehenge HERE.

Taken from a tethered balloon, it's interesting to contrast these early shots from above with what Stonehenge looks like today.

Aerial photography is apparently an excellent way to find subterranean archeological sites, as you can see HERE on this National Geographic page.

Keep an eye out as you fly over the English countryside -- you may spot a tomb from above!
