PSYCHEDELIC satellite images of our planet will leave you wondering whether they are in fact abstract pieces of art.
In one picture graphic turquoise and yellow shapes make up the agricultural landscape of Kazakhstan in the Far East, while another photo of the Sahara Desert in Algeria is displayed in a shocking tie-dye effect of reds and fluorescent yellows.
These arty displays of our natural world were captured by the Landsat 5, 7 and 8 satellites and were published in the US Geological Survey.
The popular tourist spot of the Caicos Islands in the Caribbean are displayed as a splash of dazzling blue surrounded by a burnt orange mass of sand, algae and coral.
In another image, the infamous Icelandic fjords have become a deep orange colour, dusted with a sprinkling of white snow and mountains carved like tree branches.
The Ord River estuary in Western Australia can be identified by its yellow veins of water coming from a brilliant indigo patch at the top. The dark green surrounding the yellow veins are the mangroves and the bright white and blue eye in the bottom left is an area of mudflats home to saltwater crocodiles.
Another satellite shot shows the Petermann Glacier in Greenland with its orange branch-like shapes moving away from a diagonal curved line of pale blue. In this infrared image the warm colours represent areas which in the summer are cleared of snow
This fantastic collection of photographs demonstrates just how beautiful our planet is.
