Abstract Aerial Photos Show The Stunning Beauty Of Our Meandering Waterways

Thanks to the project Water.Shapes.Earth, we get to see how beautiful the waterways on our planet look from above. It’s important to see the things we know and take for granted from a new perspective and that’s exactly what these photos are doing.

The images show the waterways from all around the world, from Spain to Azerbaijan. Each image is followed by a story that explains how the area is changing due to climate change.

“The aerial point of view reveals the real character of landscapes. Coastal plains and tidal areas become masterpieces in abstraction, often unknown to those who only see them from usual perspective,” the website of the project reads. “In the lagoons, we can see beautiful shapes made by flow, and in the same time we can observe how water influencing agriculture, industry, tourism, architecture, natural habitats of animals and our lives in general.”

Enigmatic muddy estuary Great example how Water.Shapes.Earth #watershapesearth Low tide at blue hour reveals a muddy riverbed of fishbone shaped streams in the middle of a small, but unique part of the salt marsh located at the end of the Betanzos Estuary, near Coruna in northern Spain. These natural formations could have been influenced by manmade fishponds that covered the area centuries ago. Until the 18th century the port of Betanzos was one of the most important fishing and trade centre of the ancient Kingdom of Galicia. But the river sediment that filled the estuary and reduced its depth was one cause, among others, for the decrease in sea traffic. Nowadays, the lower part forms an extensive and productive territory traditionally used for shellfishing and fishing. The marshy upriver portion is popular for eco-tourism, and sailing. The estuary of Betanzos is one of the four largest salt marshes on the coast of Galicia. Currently it is the largest coastal mudflat amongst them, formed by the confluence of the Mendo and Mandeo rivers. The riverbanks are a nature reserve covering 25 kilometres upriver.
