Dutch Artist’s Forest Photos Look Like Pixels

Dutch Artist’s Forest Photos Look Like Pixels

It’s tricky to figure out what these images are, but we’ll make it easy for you. They’re trees.

Dutch Artist Gerco de Ruijter has been taking aerial photos of a plant nursery near Boskoop, in the Netherlands, for a project he calls Almost Nature.

The results are these amazing images that look like a digital image zoomed in to individual pixel level.

Instead, the uniform colours and dot-matrix like shots are a result of tiny trees being planted out in square trays, in neat rows. Each tree is a clone, so the colours end up uniform and giving this artificial appearance.

You can work your way through the set from the Almost Nature section of van Ruijter’s site or browse more sets of amazing aerial shots, including irrigation wheels, at his website.
