Aerial photographs always present a fresh point of view to almost anything. It is a rare perspective for gravity bound creatures such as us.

The Italian photographer’s Microcities take on a miniature city appearance, almost looking like computer generated images from a sci-fi video game.
At least here is one documented case that bolsters the fact that sightings of Bigfoot, Sasquatch, Yeti or the Abominable Snowman (and whatever other name it is called) are nothing but a playful hoax from bored photographers. Nick Meek is one of those culprits, and he can surely pull it off with his arsenal of special effects.
What made you decide to get into landscape photography?
I’ve always had a strong connection to nature, and I just subconsciously gravitated towards it.

American nature and wildlife photographer Paul Souders is very well-travelled around the globe. In one of his exploits, we have his series of images shot in the ice capped shores of Churchill, Canada.
