The Earth Seen From Up Above

Have you ever tried to find your hometown on Google Earth? How about the house you grew up in? Doesn’t it look different from up above? Aerial photos always seem to be breathtaking and different, as they show all the objects on earth from a new perspective.

I think there is nothing more fun in an airplane ride than to notice the tiny buildings and trees from up above. Taken from airplanes, helicopters or hot air balloons, aerial photos give us the chance to see the world from a different angle. Even places that you know very well, seem different when you check them out from up above.

    A wonderful range of images – show’s the diversity of our world.

    2nd and 4th to last images, as well as the city skyline along the coast, are aerial views of Durban, South Africa.

    Absolutely lovely. If you like this kind of photography, I have to recommend the documentary “home”. The whole thing is available on youtube and is a great watch, entirely composed of stunning aerial footage.
