Photography is loved by many people – young and old. Perhaps the beauty of it is the idea that a single moment in time can be captured forever. This single moment is also always from a personal perspective. It is like being able to see the exact viewpoint of another individual and that perhaps excites fans of the art form.

One area of photography which has simply no comparison is aerial photography. The art of aerial photography was started all the way back in 1858 and by photographer Gaspar Felix Tournachon. Tournachon photographed a village in France and made everybody fall in love with the concept of taking images from up above. Since then, we have seen images emerging of skylines, wildlife, and city aerial shots, to name a few. We’ve now compiled a list of some of the most spectacular aerial images in recent history and trust us when we say – you’ll enjoy seeing our world from this perspective.
