Stunning photographs of Iceland from the air. The river tree: Iceland’s natural beauty pictured from the air looks like a work of art. With their strange colored surfaces and unusual landscapes, these stunning photographs look like they were taken on an alien planet. But the incredible shots were actually captured aboard a Cessna light aircraft flying over Iceland. The beautiful images reveal some of the country’s most incredible scenery, ranging from explosive volcanoes to colossal mountains.

Another shot appears to show a tree, but is actually a river running into several different streams. Photographer Sandro Santioli racked up 70 hours of flight time as he took the extraordinary images while holding his camera out the window of the aircraft.
