Can You Recognize The Subjects Of These Beautiful Aerial Photos?

To produce these stunning bird's-eye-view images, German photographer Bernhard Lang straps himself to the underside of an ultralight plane, and snaps away at what he sees. Like Canadian photographer Edward Burtynsky, Lang's pictures depict the way that widespread industrialization is changing the world we live in. Most of the photos in the gallery above come from the German port of Bremerhaven, which sees 1.35 million cars and six million containers pass through each year. There are also images of bathers lying on the sand at a beach in Bavaria. "The message might be to show the impact of human beings on the natural environment," he told Fast Co.Exist. "On the other side, the bird's-eye view reveals that we are just small creatures, not as important as we think we are."
