Artists Bring New Perspective With Amazing Aerial Photography

Image via water.shapes.earth/Instagram

‘Water Shapes Earth’ is an art project that shows the water shaped planet. It consists of a team of talented artists with a goal to bring a new perspective on how we see our planet Earth.

Through aerial photography, they show breathtaking images of our world, revealing the real character of each landscape.

“When we rise above any scene we discover completely new things. Still, the landscape continues to contain reflections, which are capable of rendering a sight far different from how it is in reality. Every reflection – which, in the classical sense, makes the picture more painterly – also detracts from its authenticity,” founder Milan Radisics wrote on Bored Panda.

Have you ever seen anything like this before??? 👽👽👽 It's not on the alien's planet, it is here, on the Earth, on place where we live!!! . Textures at an abandoned pond used for the disposal and stacking of phosphogypsum with shallow, but highly toxic radioactive green water in Huelva, Southern Spain. Located in the middle of the salty marshes, this dam, used for storing industrial waste, contains 120 million tonnes of phosphogypsum, a by-product in the manufacture of phosphate-based fertilizers. It is considered the largest landfill of its kind in Europe. Phosphogypsum is a radioactive material due to the presence of naturally occurring uranium and thorium. It also contains rare earth elements, like yttrium and scandium. Locals worried about the stability of the dams, since, in the event of a collapse, the Spanish industrial town and an estuary of Rio Tinto River would be swamped with toxic residue. After years of protests and negotiations, the company left in 2010, after 43 years of phosphogypsum production. Now phosphoric acid is imported from Morocco to avoid creating more radioactive waste, although the half-filled pond still remains. Another example how WATER.SHAPES.EARTH #watershapesearth project.

One location, different perspective, different light, completely different spectacle! . On the first picture, or as we call: on Artwork, reflectionless result delivered by orthogonal view and on the second slide what drivers can see from the bridge crossed eatuary if Betanzos River. Besides the perspective, sometimes it is worth to change the light conditions, too. The first shot on slide 2 was taken in the morning, but I didn’t like the lights, so I went back there in the evening to capture this bizarre scene in blue hour at 10:05 PM. . Low tide at blue hour reveals a muddy riverbed of fishbone shaped streams in the middle of a small, but unique part of the salt marsh located at the end of the Betanzos Estuary, near Coruna in northern Spain. These natural formations could have been influenced by manmade fishponds that covered the area centuries ago. Until the 18th century the port of Betanzos was one of the most important fishing and trade centre of the ancient Kingdom of Galicia. But the river sediment that filled the estuary and reduced its depth was one cause, among others, for the decrease in sea traffic. Nowadays, the lower part forms an extensive and productive territory traditionally used for shellfishing and fishing. The marshy upriver portion is popular for eco-tourism, and sailing. The estuary of Betanzos is one of the four largest salt marshes on the coast of Galicia. Currently it is the largest coastal mudflat amongst them, formed by the confluence of the Mendo and Mandeo rivers. The riverbanks are a nature reserve covering 25 kilometres upriver.

Beautiful abstract formations, almost impossible to figure out what it is… But this is a simple estuary as we can see on the second slide. An Icelandic estuary, flowing through black sand 😉 . All what we have to do is just to change perspective, and things arround us will look mindblowingly different. . Where the Affall River meets the Atlantic Ocean, there is a confluence of three coloured tributaries that wind through various farmlands. Together they casually flow to the ocean across the black sandy beach. Landeyjar area, Southern Iceland Beautiful example how Water.Shapes.Earth #watershapesearth For more similar images, visit our website. Link in Bio. . Affall is a small and clear spring water stream located just east of Hvolsvöllur, about 120 km from Reykjavik. Due to a connection with the Markarfljót River, the Affall was formerly very glacial colored. After blocking up the connection some years ago, it has become a clear spring water stream. The river is about 20 km long with about 77 pools designated for fishing. Salmon has been bred in the Affall River since 2002, and annually about 700 salmon are caught.

One location, different perspective, different spectacle! . On the first picture, or as we call: on Artwork, reflectionless result delivered by orthogonal view and on the second slide what plane pilots see from the most visited tourist site in the world. . Colorful grasses and swirling tidal channels on one of the 62 small islands in salt marsh of Lagoon Venice which is the largest wetland in the Mediterranean Basin, Venice, Area Lio Piccolo, Italy. . Great example, how Water.Shapes.Earth #watershapesearth . The salt marches are amongst the most productive ecosystems in the world, because the tidal flooding – in just the right amounts – brings moisture, nutrients and dissolved oxygen. These all help marsh plants to grow abundant leaves and robust roots. This is how they protect our shores and provide the homes for abundant wildlife and colorful flora, that can tolerate being periodically flooded by salty tidal waters. Venice requires this protection due to constant human presence. Settlements, overwhelming tourist traffic, industrial developments, public transport by water-buses, so called Vaporettos, as well as many private yachts and boats endanger both the islands, and the marshes. Continuously, new plans for ambitious dam systems are drawn up, only to be set aside sooner or later.

The art of life-searching antlers Harvested wheat leaves an abstract pattern reminiscent of antlers spreading through this hilly territory in this desert region, thanks to the outlines of former wetlands in Aragon, Burgo de Ebro, Spain. In Spain’s driest area, near Zaragoza, we may witness the struggle for water. Farmers cultivate the slopes, which are all that remain of a former wetland. Thus, the remnants of streams determine the shape of the farmlands. Not only is this soil more accessible, but more importantly, it is more productive and retains more moisture during the summer, helping the crops to grow. The main branch is criss-crossed with numerous stone barriers to protect from land erosion and to hold water on the fields as long as possible. By following this sound logic, farmers have created this amazing pattern of fields, probably unaware of the amazing artistic formations as seen from above.
