These spectacular images show the stunningly beautiful landscapes of Iceland and Greenland from a birds-eye perspective.
The breathtaking locations were captured by freelance photographer Ben Simon Rehn as he soared above the scenery inside a small plane.
Some images show the spectacular patterns made by melting ice and winding glacial rivers—others depict lush green hills, rugged mountains, and volcanoes.
Many of locations that Rehn photographed are so little-known and unfamiliar, viewers might need to take a few seconds to work out what they’re looking at.
“Iceland and Greenland from the ground are pretty cool, but from the sky they’re different worlds,” said Rehn. “What I like most are the patterns the glaciers make when they flow into the ocean.”
Rehn said he finds locations to photograph by doing an initial flight over the landscapes and asking the pilot know to loop back around for some pictures.
“I began taking pictures like this by coincidence,” said the 32-year-old photographer. “I was flying with a friend and saw a glacier and just thought it was absolutely beautiful.
“The conditions that day were brilliant and I could see things so clearly, the colors were amazing.”
Over the course of a 4-hour flight, Rehn says he will sometimes take up to 5,000 pictures of the scenery.
Rehn is a German freelance photographer from Bremen who currently lives and works in Iceland.
