Like oil paint lazily dragged across a blank canvas, these aerial photographs of Iceland capture streaks of meandering color against a stark background. The volcanic forces that helped shape the north Atlantic island are still hard at work, which can give the landscape an otherworldly appearance when observed from above. Photographed by Andre Ermolaev, these images show a river as it makes its way through the volcanic sands, all the way to the ocean.
He describes Iceland as “…an inexpressible combination of colors, lines, and patterns…” And from all we have seen so far, we have no reason to think otherwise.
