Satellite Photography

I found this satellite imagery whilst browsing online. Whilst they are not something that I can yet try and recreate (due to not owning a plane or knowing anyone that does), the images are inspiring and have a real abstract and art like quality to them. In my opinion this is a great way to photograph the landscape and enables us to view the world from a new vantage point. I find these images to be a real work of art.
