Human Landscapes of the American Southwest
Alan Taylor has put together a terrific collection of images he culled from Google Earth of man-made interaction with the landscape of the Southwest United States.
Housing project, mines, oil exploration, nuclear detonations and more.
Over the past week, I took a virtual tour with Google Earth, and wanted to share some of these snapshots of the human landscape in Arizona, New Mexico, Colorado, Utah, and Nevada.
If you like aerial imagery like this, I highly recommend the book Overview: A New Perspective of Earth by Benjamin Grant. My friend Steve gave it to me recently and I’ve been through it numerous times. Beautiful landscape patterns seen from above.
