Satellite Images on an Angle Make You See the World Differently

Robert Simmons, editor of Planet Stories, wants to change how you see our planet. The problem—for lack of a better word—is the satellite images we’re used to seeing: they’re taken facing straight down. This radically alters how we view natural and man-made wonders here on Earth. To help you see things differently, Simmons has curated a collection of satellite images taken on an very different angle. Skyscrapers rise from an expanse of small buildings. Mountains cast shadows across vast valleys. Bora Bora, well… Bora Bora still looks like a true paradise. Check out some of the shots above and then head to Simmons' post for more.
