Here are three new Google Abstracts -- images I've selected from Google Earth because they are (a) satisfying as abstract art, and (b) unrecognizable as aerial photos. More such abstracts here and here. A fuller explanation of the concept is here.
In each case I've provided the lat-long and eye-altitude coordinates you can use to find the original on Google Maps or Google Earth. (You can copy these directly into the search bar, then zoom in or out to match the eye altitude.) It's fun and educational to zoom around in the vicinity, discovering the vertiginous edge where geography surrenders to abstraction.

This is an area of the Australian outback with sand dunes trending northwest to southeast in regular parallel rows, redolent of this recent post. Interior Australia is full of fertile landscapes for Google Abstracts, because there are no human marks and, over large areas, no evident watercourses. In this case, the parallel channels between the dunes must serve the fleeting purposes of drainage. (24 45 49.97 S, 135 14 59.16 E, eye altitude 51.32 km.)
Is that a pelican or a swan in the upper right? These cloudlike forms are masses of barely-submerged sand in the Wadden Sea, which lies between the Dutch mainland and its outer barrier islands. (53 07 56.77 N, 5 15 03.91 E, eye altitude 13.40 km)
Finally, this one is almost cheating. Its interest comes from the inevitable photo-seams that occur all over Google Earth, where pictures taken at different times, with different weather etc, are spliced together. Here, the splices all seem to be rushing to a point, half-erasing the undersea mountains in the lower part of the image.
It's the Arctic Ocean, of course, with the North Pole near the top center of the image. This exact image is 89 35 57.20 N, 125 05 27.07 W, eye altitude 141.36 km)
