Aerial photography is the technique of capturing photographs of the land from an elevated location. This type of photography usually refers to photographs which are taken when the camera is not supported by a ground-based structure. The camera in Aerial photography may be hand held or mounted, and photographs may be taken by a photographer, triggered remotely, or triggered automatically.

Since aerial photography can produce some very inspirational photographs that provide us a beautiful view of our surroundings from a different perspective that we never usually don’t use to see. Therefore, here we are presenting 50 breathtaking aerial photos for your inspiration. Hope you like the collection.

Amazing Photography !

What an amazing collection of photos. Sometimes you really get lost in the scale of things, if it wasn’t for the man lying on those bales of cotton I would have sworn it was a big close up of a cauliflower! By the way, the motorway in picture 12 seems to be one of my local landmarks, Spaghetti Junction in Birmingham, Britain’s most notorious interchange.

Great collection !! Thanks for sharing ! . JML

Great pics! Breathtaking!

As a graphics designer for a professional Aerial Photography company I have seen some amazing Aerial Photos. Of course photos of such rare and exceptional beauty as those on display are a real treasure. I find that even the more mundane aerial photos can give you an amazing perspective on how things can look in relation to their environment. These photos are great, I will check our archive at Flying Fotos and see if we have anything we can submit to make this a list of 51 amazing aerials!
