Aerial Photos or Arial photography is when the photo is taken from above, very high above.

Usually aerial photographers take these photos from helicopters, hot air balloons, sky diving and of course, while travelling from air planes.

Aerial photos give you a bird’s eye-view, literally!

There are many specialist aerial photographers working around the world… and that certainly seems like a fun job.

9 dragons & 5 tigers

We have seen so many Chinese rice field images. They were all in color, this is in black and white. I loved it, I hope you also do. By the way, “9 Dragons and 5 Tigers” is the name of the village.
