15 Famous Landmarks Zoomed Out To Capture Their Surroundings

1

Stonehenge. The Great Pyramids of Giza. Taj Mahal. Acropolis. Even if you’ve never seen these majestic structures in person you still have a picture in your mind every time you think of them. That is because they are nearly always photographed from the front and more or less all the photographs of these majestic structures are taken from the same angle,with no backgrounds.

But surprise surprise, they actually do have their surroundings,which,as you will see,don’t always match the glory and the beauty of the landmarks themselves.  On the other hand some of these landmarks are focal points of their cities and look even more grand and beautiful as you look from distance or air.

This is a compilation of 15 famous landmarks zoomed out enough for us to see their surroundings that are, to put it mildly, surprising!
