Stephan Zirwes has a thing for aerial photography.

He loves seeing the patterns in mundane places like golf courses, soccer fields and swimming pools.

Pools often have nice structures and sometimes also strange designs, he says.

Revealing these designs required caaaaarefully shooting his Hasseblad 50Mp from the window of a helicopter hovering 1,000 feet above pools in cities throughout southern Germany.

Zirwes uses Photoshop to eliminate distractions like buildings and make a patterned frame of the surrounding title, transforming an ordinary swimming pool into a lovely minimalist scene.
