First of all sorry for the click bait headline but now that you're here you HAVE to see this video. 

You sometimes forget that Rockford can be such a good looking city. Thanks to user TY (great username BTW) we can get a birds eye view of the Forest City.

This guy (or gal) is obviously a very talented photographer and combining his talents with the latest drone technology created some jaw dropping footage. The bulk of the footage is from the river and downtown areas during a gorgeous sunset. I haven't figured out where the shot is at the 2:18 mark. If you figure it out leave a comment for me.
