(CNN) â€” Rugged coastal inlets, hidden islands and fishing boats dotted in crystal-clear water -- where could we be but the Mediterranean?
Aerial photographer Tom Hegen visited this region to capture the showstopping beauty of this famous coastline and shares his shots on Instagram. But his photo series doesn't just highlight the region's beauty -- he hopes his images are also read as a comment on the effects of overtourism on the area.
"The basic interest for me in my aerial photography is I try to show human altered landscapes, so how we as humans change and intervene in our environment," Hegen tells CNN Travel.
"The idea was to explore a sort of integrated interaction of people with the landscape around the coastlines."
