World Landmarks from a Bird’s-Eye-View Captured by Drone

New Zealand-based photographer Amos Chapple captures the world from a bird’s-eye-view in his gorgeous series titled Air . He uses drone technology to snap stunning pictures high in the sky. Architectural accomplishments like the Taj Mahal, Lotus Temple, and Saint Petersburg’s Hermitage Pavilion are all featured, along with some lesser-known locales. They’re bathed in a glowing, soft light and cover an incredible distance. Chapple was interested in consumer drones as soon as they hit the market. He bought one, learned how to fly it, and then started to travel the globe. These photographs were taken before drone photography was illegal or otherwise restricted. “There was a window of about 18 months where it was possible to fly these things anywhere and people were excited to see it. I’m glad I made use of that time,” Chapple explains.

Life After the Apocalypse

There are a lot of versions in internet about when and how will be the end of the world. Have you ever thought about how our world will look after? What could happen with Moscow and New York after a nuclear war? Talanted Russian artist Vladimir Manyuhin aka mvn78 was able to convey to us his view of such world in his matte paintings. All illustrations were created using various graphic programs such as Photoshop and 3DMax. Looks very interesting.
