In nature, water does not appear to be vivid orange, yellow or green. The intense colours come from toxic and heavy metals where oxidation processes are active. Seeing this apocalyptic, in many eyes, unphotogenic landscape from the air has the quality of an abstract expressionism artwork. It's a sight into the open wounds on the earth's surface hidden behind trees and dams somewhere in remote landscapes. Yet this manmade, otherworldly landscapes shows one of the most destructive interventions of human presence on the planet.
