30 Absolutely Stunning Aerial Photos From Around The World

June 25, 2015 | No Comments » | Topics: Photography, Uncategorized |

Earth can be absolutely beautiful as seen from the ground. But, as wonderful as it is from our point of view, certain scenes just can’t be appreciated unless seen from a bird’s eye view.

It’s this idea that lead satellite imaging company Digital Globe to create Daily Overview, a daily blog that aims to capture the beauty of landscapes and structures as seen from overhead.

Each day a new image is posted to the website and shared on both Instagram and Facebook. Alongside each image is a number of interesting facts and the exact location of each image, in case you’re looking to find it yourself.

Below are some of our favorites from the collection thus far.

1. Bourtange, Netherlands

Today we are doing a feed takeover for @theworldpost with a selection of Overviews from around the globe, including this one of Bourtange. This Dutch “star fort” was built in 1593 during the Eighty Years’ War when William I of Orange wanted to control the only road between Germany and the city of Groningen. Star forts were constructed in the manner you see here so that an attack on any of its five walls could be aggressively counteracted from the two adjacent star points.

2. Venice, Italy

Venice, Italy is situated upon 118 small islands that are separated by canals and linked by bridges. With tide waters expected to rise to perilous levels in the coming decades, the city has constructed 78 giant steel gates across the three inlets through which water from the Adriatic could surge into Venice’s lagoon. The panels – which weigh 300-tons and are 92ft wide and 65ft high – are fixed to massive concrete bases dug into the seabed.

Most mornings, people get to stare at a blank ceiling… but for photographer Oleg Grigoryev, the views are looking pretty spectacular. His series, Morning Views from the Tent, was created on repeated trips into the high regions of Tajikistan’s Fann Mountains, documenting the stunning scenes that greeted him each day as he looked out of his tent door. If these photos don’t make you want to ditch your cubicle, pack up your bags and leave the rat race of life, nothing will.
