YOU might imagine that these amazing pictures are of scenes in somewhere far away such as Canada.

In fact they were taken from the air in the hills around Bolton.

The Bolton News Camera Club member, Nazim Malji, aged 22, took them using his drone. Nazim, who works for Bolton at Home, progressed to drone photography through a passion for cars.

The Astley Bridge resident said: “I started going on drives in the countryside and I really wanted to record them because of the views, so I bought a camera. Later, I bought a drone.”
