Over this past summer we have published some very inspiring collections of photography. There are more people taking photos and sharing them online than ever before. And with access to so many photographs we can put together outstanding showcases featuring breathtaking artwork.

So in this gallery I have put together 45 shots above dense cities all around the world. These landscapes draw attention because it’s so unlike any other time period in history. More people are living in tighter areas in places like New York and Florida, or even major cities in South America & Europe. I hope these photographs can provide some insight into our world and the major structures our civilization has built in the past century.
