Earth from the Air

If you are in Norwich in the next couple of months, head over to the FORUM for a geographical treat.
There is a large display of the photos of Yann Arthus Bertrand. He is responsible for producing large format detailed aerial photographs which pick out patterns on the earth's surface: some of them produced by human processes and some produced by physical processes.
The exhibition is part of an EARTH EVENT which runs through to the end of April.
Amazingly, the EARTH FROM THE AIR site is blocked at school ?!?!?
Here's the blurb for the exhibition:
Yann Arthus-Bertrand's awe-inspiring Earth from the Air images arrive in Norwich city centre for a two month exhibition from 1st March to 29th April 2007. Earth from the Air is a free spectacular outdoor presentation of 120 large-scale photographs showing astonishing natural landscapes. Every stunning aerial photograph tells a story about our changing planet: a world with a growing population, shrinking biodiversity, polluted lands and oceans, a changing climate and a shortage of drinking water. A world, nevertheless, of beauty and of wonder.
