10 Black-And-White Photos To Get You Off Facebook And Into Nature

Posted: Updated:

As cliche as it sounds, some days we spend so much time staring at our screens that we don't get a chance to relish the beauty of the world around us. Well today, staring at a screen actually reminded us to take a peek out the window, a rare feat indeed. For that we thank Massimo Margagnoni, the Italian photographer whose dramatic black-and-white photos capture the majesty and mystery of planet Earth.

Margagnoni's long exposure photos capture icebergs, waterfalls and glacial lagoons with such dreamy accuracy that what's real and imagined becomes indistinguishable. Margagnoni's images are captured in foreign lands from Norway to Iceland, though they seem more like locales found in fairy tales than on a geographic map. The stark photos remind us of the big wide world waiting beyond our iPhones and computers, and, quite miraculously, compel us to look outside and see it for ourselves.
