The round-the-world flight of pilot Matevž Lenarčič in 2012 and his flight over the North Pole in 2013 (  have given rise to the idea of a monograph that would take us into the attractive, colourful and interesting world created by the diversity of the Earth. The title Over the Blue Planet emphasizes that 71% of the Earth’s surface is covered with water, however, the blue does not only come from the seas, but also from the various kinds of water bodies on the land. Rivers, waterfalls, lakes, wetlands, ice... They are a true challenge for the photographer who catches the complete opulence of colours, silhouettes, and panoramas that can only be experienced from up above with his camera lens. And that is the perspective you can admire on more than 400 pages of the large format book in which photos are complemented with interesting texts about the experience of flying across the globe. However, the “Blue Planet” is not merely about waters. It also offers mountains, plains, forests, valleys... The complete journey covers (overflew) the following among others:

  • 7 continents
  • 3 oceans
  • Mt. Everest
  • 100 national parks
  • 6 crossings of the Equator
  • The North Pole

It needs to be pointed out that the flights were carried out in an ultralight aircraft with minimal fuel consumption. In addition, the purpose of the flight was also to measure black carbon, one of the main reasons for global warming, for research purposes. More in »Black carbon measurement«.
