Amazing aerial views

Moon and star island, A sand art portrait of barack obama, Giant Oak tree illusion, Letters buildings, Giant Ferrari logo and camel shadows in the desert - In this terrific aerial views collection.

Moon and star island: This picture has been circulating in the internet over years and is an hoax, but only the star. The "moon" is the Island of Molokini, located between the islands of Maui and Kahoolawe, Hawaii. Its crescent shape forms a beautiful lagoon inside, which is home to about 250 species of fish, some of which can be found nowhere else on Earth.

A sand art portrait of Barack Obama: This impressive homage to the new U.S. president-elect is the work of talented Cuban-born American artist Jorge Rodriguez-Gerada, who sculpted this gigantic face of Barack Obama using gravel, sand and soil in Barcelona, where he now lives. The massive portrait of Obama’s face measures 445 feet long by 264 feet wide and covers nearly 1 hectare of Barcelona beachfront. The artwork used over 500 tons of donated materials.

Giant Oak tree illusion: A giant oak tree lying on its side. This stunning photograph was taken by Swedish Photographer Jocke Berglund.The remarkable shape of trunk, branches and foliage was created by a combination of storm damage and scars left on the landscape by forestry machinery used to retrieve logs.The image, entitled Hurricane Tree, won him The World In Our Hands prize at the Shell Wildlife Photographer Of The Year competition.

Letters buildings: These buildings look extremely similar to some alphabet letters, don’t they? Unfortunately there is no information about this.

Giant Ferrari logo: This red spot, is the Ferrari World Abu Dhabi and is world’s first Ferrari theme park and largest attraction of its kind. Its iconic sleek red roof is directly inspired by the classic double curve side profile of the Ferrari GT body, spanning 200,000 m2 and carrying the largest Ferrari logo ever created.

AMAZING !!! - Look untill you understand it:
Camel Shadows in the Desert: A picture taken of camels in the desert. It is considered one of the best pictures of the year (2005). Look closely, the camels are the little white lines in the picture. The black you see is just the shadows!
