Two impressive views on the cityscape of Shanghai, China. The new Shanghai Tower reached its full height (632m) in 2015 and is now the second tallest man made structure of the world (right after the Burj Khalifa
in Dubai). The Shanghai skyline is completed by the Shanghai World Financial Center (492m), the Jin Mao Tower (420m) and the Oriental Pearl Tower (468m). All four towers are located in Pudong, which is surrounded by the Huangpu River (Huangpu Jiang). The view was pretty clear this day, not much smog between the city and the blue sky, which is not very common because of the heavy air pollution in China.

This aerial shot shows the "Allgäu" a part of Bavaria, and one of the most beautiful areas in Germany.
It shows all the beauty that you can find compressed on the edge of flat land and mountains. In german we call it "Voralpenland" – the ground before the alps. You have a lot of small hills covered in wonderful green and some nice lakes there, always with the mountains as a beautiful backdrop.
So obviously this is the perfect place to be photographed from above. To do this I made a balloon ride and this was the view from the highest point of the trip – around 3000m.
You can enjoy the full story of the trip on storehouse

Can you spot the famous Castle Neuschwanstein in this image? It is this little white thing in the bottom right corner.
In this image you can see the unbelievable mountain range behind the castle, which is located right at northern end of the alps. The shot was made from about 25km away in the first morning light in about 3000m height. This area is called the "Königswinkel", one of Germanys most famous tourist destinations, which delivers some unbelievable beauty. More photos from there soon.
