Almost every Belizean who is on social media follows Tony Rath on Facebook because of the compelling and gorgeous photos on Belize that he posts on his Facebook page.
Last week National Geographic did an article on Tony entitled “Go Inside: Photographing Belize from the Air” in which Tony describes his experience about making aerial images with LightHawk.
For those who do not know anything about LightHawk, it is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to champion environmental protection through the unique perspective of flight.
Here are some of the striking photos that Tony took on the flight. (All photos are courtesy of Tony Rath).
