The Earth seen from the sky

Aerial photography is the art of taking pictures of the ground from an elevated position such as an aircraft!It was first practiced by a french photographer known as “Nadar” in 1858 when he flew in a balloon over Paris.

Many exceptional photographers like  Jason Hawkes and Yann Arthus-Bertrand now specialize in aerial photography using helicopters to fly over the earth and capture its beauty!

They say that a picture is worth a thousand words…So we are just going to let the pictures speak!
