    Any alternative to "bird's eye view"?

    Hello,

    How can I write a sentence without using "bird's eye view" but meaning the same thing with "bird's eye view"? I tried several sentences but I'm not sure which ones are used and sound OK:

    I want to see the view from above / from high above / from higher up / from atop.
    I want to look down at the view from from above / from high above / from higher up / from atop.

    I don't know if there is any difference between them, so they all sound OK to me. But since I'm not a native speaker, you may correct me or give another option to me except the ones above.

    Thanks for your help!

    They are all OK except "atop".
    “Every miserable fool who has nothing at all of which he can be proud, adopts as a last resource pride in the nation to which he belongs; he is ready and happy to defend all its faults and follies tooth and nail, thus reimbursing himself for his own inferiority.”

    — Arthur Schopenhauer
