Well, consider this one item ticked off your Christmas shopping list.

Dublin: A View From Above is a collection of brand new images by Dennis Horgan, featuring 240 stunning pics of the city as you've never seen it before.

And man oh man, are they bloody amazing.

"Seen from the edge of an open aircraft door, the city below looks breathtaking," says Dennis, a former auctioneer who first announced his talent for aerial photography with a similar book about Cork. He took the photos both from planes and helicopters, usually with a door removed to get better shots (gulp).

"From above, the storage tanks at St James’ Gate Brewery take on a whole new appearance, reminiscent of a scene from a film. And who knew there were rooftop swimming pools in the Dublin docks?"

Here are 10 stunning pics from the book to whet your appetite; remember, there are 230 more where these came from.
