One of the best methods to view the magnificence of Earth is to step outside the confines of gravity and get a “bird’s eye view.” These high-resolution satellite images chosen by Yann Arthus-Bertrand and printed in his new book, “Earth from Space“, display amazing patterns and textures of the ever-changing world below. Yann has a keen eye for aerial photography and is also a devoted environmental activist. In fact, a major focus of the book is a discussion of the sobering impact of pollution, deforestation, etc…

However, I am more drawn to the beauty of the selected images. It’s amazing to see how the rivers cut through the Earth and how farm land creates extensive geometric patterns.

If you enjoyed these, check out Earth’s Brain from Hector Garrido, and you can pick up “Earth from Space” here.
