Aerial Photos of Icelandic Ice Flows and Waterways Look Like Abstract Paintings

Photographer Greg Whitton, from Solihull in the United Kingdom, travels around the world and takes amazing photographs on his journeys. Whitton's specialty is outdoor and adventure photography, specializing in mountain imagery. 

In July 2014, he traveled to the Southern Highlands of Iceland, where he took aerial images of the landscape below from a charter plane. He shared the resulting images on Behance – my favorite being "Collection IV (Abstracts & Details)." I love the textures, forms, and colors of the natural formations, which appear like abstract paintings, especially when shown in detail, apart from the larger context of their surroundings. 

In August 2015, Whitton's first photography book Mountainscape will be released.
