Art is all around us. While you may expect art to come from the talent and genius of a gifted human being, it turns out that the forces of nature are a rival to any of the creative giants that we have produced, and in some cases, even better!

Following on from a previous post, we here at Bored Panda have compiled a list of our favorite artworks created by Mother Nature, those accidental masterpieces that are a serendipitous result of the laws of physics and gravity, and the whims of light, wind and color. Scroll down below to check them out for yourself and take a closer look around you, you never know where accidental art might be hiding!

sivribiber Report

Yvonne Bernal 1 year ago

This one actually isn't "accidental art" - Credit should be given to photographer Bing Wright who created a series of images "Broken Mirror/Evening Sky". The prints of the images are very large – 4′ across and 6′ tall. They used to be on display at the Paula Cooper Gallery in New York.
