The following images, currently on display at The Royal Geographical Society headquarters in London, capture the astounding diversity of Britain’s geography from the air. The pictures selected for the exhibition demonstrate how natural and man-made forces play their part in shaping the country’s landscapes, ranging from the magnificent archipelagos of Scotland to colourful recreational sites like Southend-on-Sea’s Adventure Island amusement park. Check our pick of the most epic shots below.
Dr Rita Gardner, Director of The Royal Geographical Society, said: ‘The exhibition offers a fantastic opportunity for visitors to see Britain’s incredible natural and human landscapes from a unique perspective. Intricate patterns, often hidden at ground level, are revealed in our aerial images, and the environmental, social and economic forces that create our diverse landscapes are exposed and explained.’
Britain from the Air will be on display in the Society’s Pavilion and gardens in South Kensington, London, until 12 July.
