Wonderment for your Monday

Loving this project...

French journalist, environmentalist, and photographer Yann Arthus Bertrand started an image bank called Altitude Agency, for which he commissioned and assembled over 500,000 aerial photographs of the earth.

Then, alongside UNESCO World Heritage, he gathered the most beautiful images into a project called The Earth From Above (la Terre vue de ciel). 

 This one is a shot of an underwater plant that is only visible 
when a certain tide changes the water level in the Loire River.

These images were put into a book with the same name, and they were additionally shown in numerous free exhibits, in which the images were printed on giant posters and hung in public places like on the gates of the Luxembourg Gardens in Paris.  I love that the public got to see them...

A wonderful reminder of how incredibly beautiful our world is...
