A collaboration between NASA and the US Geological Survey has seen some spectacular infrared images emerge of tectonic plates, volcanos and rivers all over the planet, that look like art.

The 'Earth As Art' project, which began in the early 2000s, is now in its sixth edition and includes images from satellites and USGS drones equipped with infrared sensors.

Not only do the photos show the beauty of the planet, but also the rapid way in which it is changing.
