If you missed the Tower of London Poppies then this is what a drone saw when it flew over the Tower of London’s poppy display.
A stunning, stirring and a stark reminder of every life lost.
The Tower of London has famously marked the centenary of the First World War with a stunning display of ceramic poppies.
An estimated four million people have gone to witness the display.
It’s not always easy to get a decent view or to appreciate the sheer scale of the display.
However, a drone was sent out to capture the commemoration – which it has done with vivid clarity.
With thanks to the Historical Royal Palaces for the beautiful video.
Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red was a public art installation created in the moat of the Tower of London, England, between July and November 2014.
It commemorated the centenary of the outbreak of World War I and consisted of 888,246 ceramic red poppies, each intended to represent one British or Colonial serviceman killed in the War.
The work’s title was taken from the first line of a poem by an unknown soldier in World War I.
