These photos at first glance look like beautiful abstractions. In reality the beautiful textures and shapes are tree nurseries and grid forests in the Netherlands. Dutch photographer Gerco de Ruijter takes aerial photographs called Baumschule.

In Ruijter’s words:

“How abstract can a landscape become while remaining a landscape?” de Ruijter asked himself. “I tried to find the answer to this question during extended travels, by searching for a fully natural landscape, not manmade, and lacking any cultural presence. I found these ‘natural-born’ sites in New Mexico—deserts formed by rocks and sand and all forms of erosion. A barren landscape, too, with scarce vegetation.”
