Spectacular Photos Capture Earth's Majestic Beauty

French photographer Alban Henderyckx captures the majestic beauty of the world. His awe-inspiring landscape images show a variety of crystal clear and colorful terrains on this great Earth. They highlight intricate rock formations, multifaceted blocks of ice, and bright-blue lagoons in scenes that seems like they're never ending.

There's an incredible sense of tranquility in Henderyckx's photos, and it's as if he has frozen moments in time. Water stands still, the sun is suspended in the sky, and fog rises but it doesn't move. This visual splendor reminds you of just how spectacular the world is, and it's this sentiment that Henderyckx wants to communicate in his work. “When the horizon is open to me, I have a deep sense of freedom,” he writes. We can see how his photographs are a perfect way to remember this feeling even when he's not on an adventure!
