Kim Keever’s landscapes look like traditional paintings when photographed, but are made from some unusual materials.

You’d be forgiven for thinking that Kim Keever’s fantastical landscape photography involved a lot of Photoshop. It doesn’t. What it does involve is a 200 gallon fish tank.

Keever creates mystical landscapes, using water and dyes, as well as other materials to make foliage and rocks, and then photographs them with a Hasselblad camera. The result is an ethereal world, fluid with color and a gentle haze. Keever writes on his website:

It is my intention to present the landscape as beauty itself, without reference to man and industry. Though any work I’ve made could be a place here on earth, I think of these panoramas as existing millions of years ago, today, or millions of years in the future.
