  • 56 days over Africa in a Helicopter

    Two German photographers fullfilled their childhood dream and flew from Cairo to Capetown over Africa and took aerial pictures of what they saw (actually starting in Hamburg).
    Pretty sensational harvest: Africa from above! Never mind the German captions, it is the images that matter.



    And here's some older Christmassy stuff of my own currently on display on our sister website

    Those African shots are amazing!!! Thanks for that, LE. I really do wish I could at least read German, but like you said, the images speak for themselves!

    And I like your Ethiopian page, too. Must have been quite an experience!

      Got to agree with you there, Rose. They are absolutely stunning; some of them are quite mystifying, too. I think an explanation shouldn't neccessarily affect the impact of some of these shots.
      You see, it's... it's no good, Montag. We've all got to be alike. The only way to be happy is for everyone to be made equal.

        Some of you will note that both Thesiger (of the other thread) and the German photographers photographhed the incredible churvh at Lalibela in Northern Ethiopia that is hewn from one gigantic rock:

        Poliza's Aerial view 2006

        Of course I'm to notice as I go through life with a certain obsession with all things Ethiopian ... ... So "Malkam Gan'na" to you all, which is Merry Christmas in Amharic.

          Hi L'Etranger,

          That is really cool. Great picture! Most fascinating.
