river tails. 2016

This aerial shot of a glacial river was taken in Iceland from a small Cessna. The idea is to show the beauty of the nature from the angle that is rarely seen by most. At the first glance it is difficult to recognise what it is. Everyone sees something different, but what is beyond doubt is that the nature creates the most unique and beautiful masterpieces out there.
