It’s no secret that Michael Layefsky takes terrific aerial photos of the Berkeley landscape. In 2012, he had two shows in Berkeley – one at the Main Library and one at the Picturish Gallery. Berkeleyside also published a large portfolio of his work shot with a camera flying 150 feet in the air.

Layefsky and the staff at the Lawrence Hall of Science teamed up to make this valentine of a video to usher in the new year. Check it out.

Here’s an interview with Layefsky about the making of the video.
