Precisely what the title says. It's a bit of a stunner:

Oh my goodness, that is just amazing. It took me a minute to get my bearings - as the map view is from someone north of London looking south. But the moment I saw Hyde Park, I had my landmarks. Truly, a stunning find, torstan!

I could do that with an afternoon in a balloon.

(Just kidding of course. Cool find!)

Does that mean this was actually made while in the balloon? Or rather referenced from a photo taken in the balloon or something? Either way, definitely very impressive!
