Gathered via Digital Digging, a short video on Jarlshof.

"A short computer generated film based upon kite aerial photography taken at the ancient settlement site of Jarlshof with interpretive reconstructions using imagery from various other locations across Scotland.
The project was an experiment to see how low altitude aerial photography could be used to capture the atmospheres as well as the structural details of our ancient heritage and how these images could be used to create an environment for interpretative reconstruction."

Hi Moss,
Without a doubt low-level aerial photography does put a different perspective and add atmosphere to a structure. I use a 20ft pole to do mine and it definitely adds to the appeal of most sites. We have got used to viewing from both ground level and high above sites but the lower 'side on' view I find really interesting and fresh.
