You might think those images are paintings or illustrations, but when you look closer you’ll see the waves in the water and realize this is photography. Those amazing pictures were taken by Tom Hegen, a photographer from Germany. The sadness about those pictures is the fact that they involve melting glaciers, which is a bad sign, but the patterns they create in the landscape are so peaceful and beautiful.
Tom: As the glaciers in Iceland melt, ice blue water veins their way across black volcanic sand, creating most peculiar patterns in the landscape. Those scenes have an element of duality – it is hard to tell whether a picture was taken from a macro perspective or from a small airplane around 3000 feet in the air.
