The mark of a great photographer is the ability to imagine a scene from a different perspective. Anyone can hold an expensive camera and take the expected, cliche photos, but a creative mind thinks outside the box in order to get interesting shots. In the case of photographer Andre Ermolaev, he is able to abstract and recreate Icelandic landscapes by shooting them from an aerial view. We are transported to a new, alien world of craters, unnatural colors, shimmering waterways, and jagged coastlines. The photos feel as though we are viewing another planet via NASA satellite.
