The Russian North From a Bird’s Eye View

Photo Gallery

Michael and Ekaterina have been engaged in aerial photography for several years already. With the help of a camera mounted on board a radio-controlled aircraft, they capture the face of the Earth from a bird’s eye view. The photographers have provided this present collection of photographs from the Russian North, which they traveled to along Highway P21 “Kola,” one of the most beautiful roads in Russia. This route connects St. Petersburg and Murmansk and then heads for the border with Norway. It is named in honor of the city Kola, the historical center of the Kola Peninsula, located 7.5 miles from the center of Murmansk. The photographers’ complete works are available on the website aerialphoto.ru.
