After browsing through the book “Earth From the Air” which is a collection of environmental photographs taken from the air by Yann Arthus-Bertrand, and reading deputy-dog’s 11 phenomenal images of earth entry I wanted more.

Quickly I found a flickr group named Earth From the Air. While I’m typing this the group got over 600 members and over 5300 photos, many which are amazing photos of our beautiful earth. You should really check it out.

Some of my personal favourites follows in no specific order (sadly I haven’t had time to look at all the photos in the group :/)

Lately I’ve had this feeling that I would want to travel the world, and I sometimes wish I lived many years ago being a member of some expedition team, exploring and searching for unknown regions and such.
For now, I guess I’ll have to explore using the internet. 😉

At the border of Venezuela, Brazil and Guyana lies Monte Roraima, the world’s highest tepui (tabletop mountain) with it’s 2,810 metres (9,219 feet). The table mountains in the area are considered to be some of the oldest geological formations on Earth, dating back about 2 million years. It is also thought to be the mountain that inspired Sir Arthur Conan Doyle to write the famous 1912 novel “The Lost World”.
