If NASA stumbled upon another planet that looked anything remotely like these photos taken by Alex Ugalnikov, there might be a mass exodus. Incredibly magical in all of its pastel hues, the talented photographer shows the world what a morning looks like in Belarus nature. Even the trees look otherworldly with its branches softened not only by the color of the rising sun, but the snow covering it.

Whether fog drifts into the frame or a crescent moon hangs in the distant horizon, Alex Ugalnikov's images are so striking people will be inspired to create their own fantastical stories around them. It's incredible to think that such beauty exists in the natural world. Perhaps it will inspire people to lift their noses from their phones and go out to experience the world firsthand.
