Going Dutch - remembering the 70s

It is like being back in the 70s and 80s. The late night test pattern on our TVs that were a feature of the box before the TV stations shut down for the night, are for some of us strong and present childhood memories that these aerial photographs of the Dutch landscape evoke.

The test pattern was as much part of the cultural landscape as these tulips are part of the Dutch landscape. Do you remember the test pattern alongside shows such as Starsky and Hutch, MASH, Police Woman and Kojak?

The earth seen from above allows us a new perspective of the planet and our place in it. The impact that we have on our earth need not be one of denuded landscapes but can, as these photos suggest, be one of beauty and inspiration and indeed refer us back to our past.

These photographs do remind us that the world is a beautiful place.
