Many thanks to Mary I. for alerting me to these images.
So amazing. Thinks for finding and sharing.
Aerial view gives one the real perspective of the size of the settlements, buildings, mountains, river body, sea, mines,nature, human settlements which a from ground level one would not be able to judge or imagine the scale.
Sun rays on Pena, Portugal is an excellent example which one could only see from the sky so also Machu Picchu,( Peru) grandeur could be seen from the sky. Wish I had wings and fly like a kite and gobble up the beauty of the Earth.
Wow. Such amazing images!
Dusky—you keep going to more and more incredible subjects in these extraordinary photos! It is fun to think of something you haven’t covered, but it’s OK—we are happy with the incredible views of our world we’ve seen thus far!
These were incredible—we’ve seen a few of these places, and feel fortunate in that. (Although the Brazilian favelas are pretty hard on the emotions.)
Thank you, as always, Lorie & David
It’s amazing what the rest of the world looks when you’ve never left the states. Really enjoyed the photos .
