Natural Art – Abstract painting & contrasts

The Art of Nature – A series of photos featuring the colourful art & contrasts made by nature. Natural works of art produced by lava, rocks and stones. In this overview you can see some beautiful examples of abstract paintings and forms in nature.

Hawaiian heart-shaped lava

Lava Art: Not only northern lights can take on the shape of a heart – several other things as well. Nature truly is a master at creating works of art. This heart-shaped piece of lava lies peacefully radiating on the humongous Kilauea lava field, near the town of Kalapana (Big Island, Hawaii).
