Nature and wildlife photographer Martin Bailey does a beautiful job capturing majestic icebergs and ice palaces in his ethereal and captivating Antarctica photography series.

Fueled by his passion for travel, nature and the environment, the Tokyo-based photographer takes the audience on an ice-covered trip to document monolithic icebergs and ice palaces that look like architectural sculptures in this Antarctica photography series. The evocative photos exhibit Bailey's masterful use of light and a deep respect for his icy subjects -- some of the ice oscillates are 1,000 years old.

Choosing to capture the landscape when it is empty and free of nature like seals and penguins that can often be seen in the region, Bailey shows us a vast and lonely continent that feels isolated and otherworldly dreamscape.
