Aerial Farm Photography by Edward Burtynsky

Eb_drylandfarming32-560x419

Edward Burtynsky’s photographs of mines, quarries, oil fields, ships and airplane graveyards have transformed landscapes of devastation into a thing of beauty. His new photographic series depicts the earth from above, abstracting the terraced farming practices of Spain into a Kandinsky-like painted canvas.

Hatfield Houses Labyrinth, Hertfordshire

Media_httpartdailyorg_vorsu

An exhibition at the Centre de Cultura Contemporania in Barcelona reviews the concept and representation of the labyrinth throughout history, making a clear distinction between single-path labyrinths and mazes, labyrinths with a choice of paths, and reflecting on the relevance of this element and different practices and uses today.

Pacific Star II by Colin Rich

This is the second trip of my home made high altitude weather balloon photography project, Pacific Star. 

The balloon was launched at 5:37pm (PST) from Oxnard, CA and reached an altitude of 125,000 feet snapping photos and recording video along the way.

The balloon burst, the parachute deployed, and the payload floated down for 35 minutes, landing near an old olive orchard Northeast of Santa Paula.
