Phenomenal images of the world’s cities as you’ve never seen them

Phenomenal images of the world’s cities as you’ve never seen them

Russian photography group, AirPano, have made it their mission to capture some of the most amazing views on Earth. And to be honest, we’re pretty sure they’ve already succeeded.

For several years, they’ve been working to create “aerial spherical panoramas”, the results of which are truly astounding. Using drones, helicopters, dirigibles, hot air balloons, helium balloons, and planes, photographs are taken from staggering heights. Then, using computer software, the images are manipulated into a circular planet shape.

We can’t get enough of staring at these images – they’re simply mesmerising.
