15 Pics Of The Landscapes Of Iceland That Look Like Fascinating Paintings

Swirling glacial rivers.

According to Dutch photographer Albert Dros: “Everyone knows that Iceland has amazing landscapes throughout the whole country. But Iceland doesn’t only look beautiful from the ground. It also looks incredible from the sky.

On a recent flight, I had the opportunity to expand my aerial portfolio and focused on mostly top-down images. Photographing top down is not easy. The landscapes look completely different than you’re used to. It’s like seeing a whole new world.

New views go by every second and you have to be quick to capture them properly. All these top-down views really look like paintings, hence the name of this series. Rivers, ground textures, valleys, they all look very different from a top-down perspective. The advantage of using a plane is that you can quickly fly everywhere and your perspective is much higher as opposed to using a drone.

Special thanks to Haraldur aka Volcanopilot for being a great pilot!”
