During a little surfing trip (I mean the Internet – I don’t do sea!) I tripped over this site and found it truly inspirational, so I thought I should share it. I confess I have never heard of Yann Arthus-Bertrand but I really feel I should have.
The shots from the air are stunning and I also love the study of French people. However, I really can’t do the photos justice with words – you need to go take a look. You will need Flash installed to view the site.
Update: Thank’s to Charlie’s comment I went searching and it turns out Yann has a series of books – Earth from Above, The New Earth from Above: 365 Days and Earth from the Air: 365 Days to name just three.
