Aerial photographs give us the chance to see the world in a way we rarely get to.
The views of cities, natural landscapes, and manmade marvels from above showcase their awe-inspiring design and terrain in spectacular detail.
AirPano is a non-profit team of Russian photographers who travel the world to capture aerial photographs of the world’s most eye-catching locations, from those popular with tourists to lesser-known spots that just look magnificent from so high up.
The team shoots their 360-degree panoramic images from helicopters, airplanes, and hot air balloons, and they provide you with the ability to pan around the images and see their surroundings, truly transporting you.
From extinct volcanoes to small towns like Naarden, outside Amsterdam, which is famous for the star-shaped 17th century fortifications it preserves today, here are some of their most captivating shots.
