If a picture can paint a thousand words, these photos will simply make you utter one word – WOW.

From the Crystal Caves of Iceland to the colorful rainbow-like hills in Zhangye, China to the uniquely pink-colored Lake Retba in Senegal, the world is definitely full of so many natural wonders. You can stand and wonder at something so magnificent such as the Gulfoss Frozen Waterfall or be charmed with the rolling green meadows in a countryside in South Moravia, Czech Republic.

All these awesome places captured in this set of picture perfect photos… and then some.

Moscow-based photographer Katerina Plotnikova has already been featured in the past for her extraordinary work showcasing young women holding wild animals. She recently showcased an even more daring set of photos, featuring even larger and more exotic animals such as bears, elephants, giraffes and elk.

Plotnikova’s work shows a stunning yet haunting blend of surrealism with mythical and fairytale elements. A dreamy vibe is made possible through soft and muted colors resulting to enchanting photos. The stunning contrast between delicate, feminine models against powerful, wild animals helped to conjure images of regal princesses and fantasy and magic.

Though it may seem like capturing the images is risky and dangerous, Plotnikova assures everyone that she has sought the help of professional animal trainers all throughout the shoot, even showing behind-the-scene photos of a bear trainer giving out treats from over a model’s shoulder.
