Landscapes from the Air
Being terrestrial creatures, humans got used to see and perceive the surroundings from the surface of the Planet. Walking or driving the streets, we can see the trees, buildings, yards, and other people around us in relatively great details. However, our vision is limited and we cannot perceive the entire image of the district or town, we live in, other than by looking at the map. Rising up into the sky on board of a plane allows a human to see the world from an absolutely different angle. It is like scaling down the image in Google Earth application – we just omit the smallest details, such as houses or cars, concentrating on the entire image of a particular locality.
Birds’ fly views are always interesting for both photographers to shoot and viewers to look at. This specific type of photography art offers the audience an alternative view on the surroundings, highlighting the grandeur and magnificence of the Nature that created and very artfully placed forests, rivers, mountains, lakes, and other natural formations on the huge canvas of the Planet. Looking at the air landscapes, we can enjoy those natural masterpieces, authored by the Greatest Artist. Indeed, changing the point of observation, we also change the scope of our understanding and perception of the surrounding world. Escape from triviality and entering the higher level of the world perception – this is what air landscape photography is all about.
