From awe-inspiring waterfall views to astonishing shots of cities – these breathtaking pictures capture the world’s most beautiful sights from the air. The stunning images were taken by a group of Russian photographers by the name of AirPano, who travel the world snapping its most wondrous sights from helicopters, planes, hot air balloons and radio-controlled devices. The amazing album includes bird’s-eye city views of Central Park in Manhattan, the Arc de Triomphe in Paris, the Westerdok Disctrict in Amsterdam and central Dubai. Beautiful waterfall photos also feature in their collection including Venezuala’s Angel Falls and the Iguazu Falls which border Brazil and Argentina.
Other natural wonders captured are the snaking San Juan River in Utah and a vast flock, or flamboyance to use its correct term, of flamingos on Kenya’s Lake Bogoria. Vietnam’s iconic Halong Bay also makes the cut along with a postcard view of the famous white buildings that look over the Aegean on Greek island Santorini. On AirPano’s Website, the images can viewed in 360-degree video displays displays adding to the photo’s already awesome nature. There are more than 2,000 photos in the album showing over 200 famous locations of the planet, including North Pole, Antarctica, Mariana Trench, and even the Earth’s view from the stratosphere.
