Entry Description

Aerial photography attracts me always: the landscapes photographed from above assume unimaginable forms. Think of the drawings made by the man with his work in the fields, to the shores of rivers and roads that become sinuous lines, to the cultivation of flowers that look like colorful carpets of petals. During my flight on this beautiful earth, I photographed glaciers, volcanoes, lakes and rivers, all with bizarre shapes, almost abstract. I can say with certainty that it was the most beautiful flight photo that I made until now.
