Our planet earth is extremely beautiful, that has captured by British Photographer Peter Adams with stunning images of African deserts, plunging waterfalls and Arctic snows capes from 3,000ft, is making some of the world’s greatest landscapes look like captivating works of abstract art. The nature lover photographer travelled thousands of miles to document the varied surfaces of the planet (all from high above). The 55-year-old, from the Cotswolds, snapped the images while flying in light aircraft, helicopters and gyrocopters over some of the most well-known tourist destinations in the world, including Yellowstone National Park in the US and Namibia’s Namib Desert.

From high above, Yellowstone’s Grand Prismatic Spring looks like an alien volcano, while the desert in Andalucia, Spain looks like a scene from Mars. Some of his most remarkable photographs were captured in Australia, where he flew over the blue waters at the Great Barrier Reef and a beach in Queensland, where the sand meets the sea to create an outstanding swirling pattern. Moreover another image from Queensland shows the destructive force of lightning, as a green forest is marred by a patch of grey, dead trees. In other scenes, travelers look like ants as they snap photos of a superb waterfall in Iceland, and strips of land nestled between canals in northern Holland look like brushstrokes. Peter’s work has been featured in publications around the world and he has been recognized with several awards and honors, including 2003 Travel Photographer of the Year.
