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).
Lava Art: A natural abstract painting. You can see this striking palette from behind the top of the Eldfell volcano (Vestmannaeyjar, Iceland).
Selvallavatn mirror lake hallucination
Abstract Art: Which way is up and which way is down? The reflecting waters of Selvallavatn create an abstract and hallucinating view of intricate lava structures on the banks of the mirror lake (Snæfellsnes Peninsula, Iceland).
Giant’s Causeway columns
Rock Art: These natural building blocks & pillars look like a 3D painting (Giant’s Causeway, Northern Ireland).
Djúpalónssandur stones & seaweed
Stone Art: Striking contrasts of pebbly stones & seaweed at Djúpalónssandur beach (Snæfellsnes Peninsula, Iceland).
