Around the World: Aerial Photos of Yann Arthus-Bertrand

We often forget how beautiful the world we live in in the rush of the daily grind. We hardly ever take a moment to sit still with our heads up to enjoy the blue skies, birds chirping and leaves on trees swooshing as the gentle breeze of the air discreetly pass us by. We take all these things for granted and yet from time to time we bump into something that reminds us on how beautiful the world truly is. Sometimes, slowing down to open your eyes is all that it takes for the world to enthrall you with its beauty.

For aerial photographer Yann Arthus-Bertrand, however, it's just part of his five-year airborne odyssey documenting through his lens the world as we rarely see it. So, if you need a reminder to make you appreciate Earth more, here are some of Yann Arthus-Bertrand's amazing works.
