NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) -

It's a view of New Orleans you likely haven't seen before.

From the Superdome to the French Quarter, a quadcopter captures beautiful footage of the Crescent City from above.

It's a video shot by Simon Andersson, who captured the footage at dawn and sunrise over several weeks in May. Andersson says he used a drone with a GoPro Hero4 Black Edition mounted to its gimbal.

Sites include the Superdome, Central Business District, Crescent City Connection Bridge, the French Quarter, Canal Street and more. Mobile users can watch Andersson's video here.
