A bird’s eye view of the largest state in northern Germany
Photography has become an integral part of our everyday lives, not least because of social media. Whether we’re dining with friends or walking the dog, we take our smartphone everywhere. Even though modern technology lets us capture virtually every moment of our lives on camera, it hasn’t diminished the importance of photography as an art form.
Quite the reverse – advances in technology have led to one of the most remarkable photographic techniques: aerial photography.
Aerial and drone images give us a wonderful opportunity to see landscapes and architecture from a completely new perspective! Drones are particularly suitable for simple photos of buildings. For capturing the special features of a landscape, aeroplanes or helicopters are often required.
Photographer Martin Elsen specialises in aerial photography and is known for his awe inspiring photos of Germany from above.
We’ve put together some of his most beautiful aerial images of Niedersachsen (Lower Saxony) for you to enjoy. Get ready for some spectacular views of the North Sea coast line, the Altes Land region, the state capital Hanover and lots more!
