2. Andre Ermolaev is a Russian photographer who takes incredibleaerial and landscape photographs. In his series entitled Iceland.River., Andre shows us the beautiful environment of Iceland fromabove. The rivers and streams shown, which are carrying sediment fromvolcanoes and glaciers give the photos the incredible colors andtextures. The photographs could easily be mistaken for abstractlandscape paintings. Andre tells My Modern Met: Iceland is a wonderful country; I would even say that it is a trueparadise for all the photo shooting-lovers. But what has become areal discovery for me is the birds eye view of the rivers flowingalong the black volcanic sand. It is an inexpressible combination ofcolors, lines, and patterns. The photo represents the mouth of theriver falling into the ocean. A little bit upstream there is a yellow-colored brook flowing into the river, but yellow currents fail to mix with the main water flow. One can estimate the scale judging by the car tracks that are clearly seen on the black sand. This is just a river, just a volcano, just our planet. 3. ByJ.Jayakrishnan
