The world got a vivid reminder of Iceland’s volcanic character when Eyjafjallajokull shut down European air traffic in 2010, and while Andre Ermolaev’s aerial shots of may end up leaving just as strong an impression, it’s a decidedly more beautiful one.
These photos of rivers and streams running against the dark volcanic material show yet another delightfully unusual side of the small country’s breathtaking scenery..
“Iceland is a wonderful country; I would even say that it is a true paradise for all the photo shooting-lovers. 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. The photo represents the mouth of the river falling into the ocean.
“A little bit upstream there is a yellow-colored brook flowing into the river, but yellow currents fail to mix with the main water flow. 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.”
