Back after a break – Aerial Photographs

It’s good to be back online after a break. I am almost back to speed on work and other fronts (of which, I might mention, there aren’t too many)

In what is perhaps the longest time I have spent at a website in the last few months, I stumbled across Yann Arthus-Bertrand’s site of aerial photographs and had a great time looking down on this Earth of ours. You can view the photographs for different countries at this page. They come with interesting comments, which increases their value.

Edit: Some more detail about Yaan is at this short bio. You can also send e-cards with these pics on them. Here’s an interview with the man. It is interesting to know that I am not the only one who experienced “flow” at that website.

All the pictures are available for use as Desktop Wallpapers, so no points for guessing what my desktop will look like in the near future :)

I had been to daypop earlier and clicked through a link to a Chinese/Japanese blog with these photos on it, and soon was able to arrive at the source. I am glad I did, because the comments that come with the photos are really good. Excuse me for repeating that :)

Now you have a great day.

This one is for Sumant.

    I just read the thing about NASA and the proposal. NASA is the place I dream of working, so I think thats pretty neat, quite inspiring, actually.
