Stunning Photos Capture of Antarctica's Icebergs

Tokyo-based nature and wildlife photographer Martin Bailey captures the otherworldly beauty of Antarctica in this fascinating photo series. Though the frozen continent is home to numerous seals and penguins, but the brave Martin Bailey chose to snap the sweeping landscape without any signs of life, instead focusing on the harsh and otherworldly beauty of 1,000-year-old icebergs and glaciers. With a striking palette of pure white, icy blue, pale aqua, and deep cobalt, Bailey's spectacular photographs draw parallels between manmade civilizations and the isolated, natural allure of Antarctica. Therefore; towering, monolithic ice formations evoke the imagery of architectural form such as grand palaces, impenetrable fortresses, and even great pyramids. Splendid in snow and ice, the frozen tundra's mesmerizing attractiveness looks like something from a dream or another world.
