Los Angeles is huge. It takes more than several days before you realize just how wonderfully expansive the city is, which is what one filmmaker knows all too well after posting this awesome drone video.

Ian Wood (h/t Hidden Los Angeles) posted his latest work to Vimeo, featuring a subject that millions call home.

In just a few minutes, you will see a wide swath of the city, including places like Griffith Observatory, the Memorial Coliseum and City Hall.

As Wood states, there is just too much good stuff.

The videographer writes, “Packing it all into one short-form video has been nigh impossible and much didn’t make it for safety, privacy or simply because I couldn't make it 30 minutes long!”

Great news gets even better, because this video is a sequel of sorts as Wood covered Downtown Los Angeles in a similar video last year:

Now we here love our drone videos. They offer professionals and amateurs the ability to post some truly stunning videos of exotic locales across the globe.

As we know too well, ubiquitous drones can be a problem.  

Thankfully, Wood does more than supply a sweeping view of a vibrant city. He also offers some wisdom on capturing drone footage.

Wood states: “With all the controversy about drones, it’s important to remember that they can be (and often are) used responsibly. As with many emerging technologies, the laws struggle to keep up and we must employ a common sense approach to their use that is respectful to community, safety and the law.”

Among his tips are avoiding busy periods of the day, staying clear of crowds and absolutely keeping clear of airports.

With some safety measures in place, Wood has managed to provide an enthralling journey around the City of Angels.
