At first glance I thought these were the abstract paintings of an artist. But no, this is planet Earth. The aerial shots by photographer Andre Ermolaev were taken above the volcanoes of Iceland as streams of water make their way down the ash landscape.

“Iceland is a wonderful country; I would even say that it is a true paradise for all the photo shooting-lovers,” says Ermolaev, “But what has become a real discovery for me is the bird’s eye view of the rivers flowing along the black volcanic sand. It is an inexpressible combination of colors, lines, and patterns … One can estimate the scale judging by the car tracks that are clearly seen on the black sand. This is just a river, just a volcano, just our planet.”
