Encompassing swirling marshes and crystal lagoons, Water. Shapes. Earth uses drones to catch the Earth’s unexpected beauty from new perspectives.

Hungarian photographer Milan Radisics has already travelled across countries to find locations for his work, including mud volcanoes in Azerbaijan and rapidly melting glaciers in Iceland. The aerial shots are then stitched together from tens of single images, representing the free flowing lines of colour abstract artworks.

For the team behind the project, the art carries an important message. Each location is linked to the power of water to shape our world — for better or for worse.

“A long, long time ago, the whole Earth was covered with water. Water flows, shapes its course, and moves away, influencing our life,” says the team’s community manager Zsófia Priskin. “If we don’t act responsibly, one day water will disappear, and we will see only the traces of it.”
