Over the Blue Planet celebrates the diversity of the Earth as seen and photographed during the round-the-world flight of pilot Matevz Lenarcic in 2012, and his flight over the North Pole in 2013.The book celebrates the 71% of the Earth's surface which is covered with water; not only sea but also rivers, waterfalls, lakes, wetlands and ice. Pilot and photographer Matevz Lenarcic has caught the complete spectrum of colours, silhouettes and panoramas which can only be experienced from up above. The perspective is captured on 380 pages in this large format book in which the photographs are complemented with texts about his experience of flying across the globe. However, the 'Blue Planet' is not merely about water. It also showcases mountains, plains, forests, valleys over seven continents, three oceans, Mt. Everest, 100 national parks, six crossings of the Equator, and the North Pole.The flights were carried out in an ultralight aircraft with minimal fuel consumption. The purpose was also to measure black carbon for research purposes, one of the main reasons for global warming
