One of the world’s most stunning archeological sites I have visited is this complex of 2500-year old tombs of ancient Persian kings (Achaemenid empire) near Persepolis and Shiraz in southern Iran. This time-exposure image has captured the rotation of sky in form of star trails around the north celestial pole, marked by the north star Polaris right above the cliff, during the course of one hour. The cross shaped tombs in Naqsh-e Rustam are each about 20 meters long and are built into a cliff 60 meters high.

Recovering Lenga Forest | Photograph by Stephanie Hohmann // #sponsored by @bloombergdotorg // "The Lenga Forest in the French Valley of Torres del Paine National Park was hit by forest fire," writes Your Shot photographer Stephanie Hohmann. "A group run mainly by volunteers works tirelessly to grow lenga saplings to replant forests such as this one. During a trip to Patagonia, I spent the morning at Reserva Cerro Paine Tree Nursery helping to water and transfer lenga saplings into larger pots. One day, I hope to return and see mature trees planted in this very spot." This image was submitted to the Climate Action in Your Community assignment, curated by National Geographic photographer Katie Orlinsky (@katieorlinsky) // Check out @paristopittsburgh to learn more about how communities across America are coming together to act on climate change. #ParistoPittsburgh

Photo by @thomaspeschak | This is one of the first shark photographs I ever took, at Aliwal Shoal in South Africa in the early 2000s. How does this photograph make you feel? Does it trigger any deep-seated emotions or instinctive reactions? Awe, fear, hate, respect...sharks are one of the most popular ocean subjects on instagram and I want to learn more about how you view these marine predators.

If it were up to Ola Ogunlolu (@therookiehooker), he’d spend all his time “making pretty things out of yarn.” That’s why his hashtag, #WHPwhatyoulove, shows him surrounded by his crocheted creations in full bloom. 🌻 🏵 🌼 #WHPUpToMe

#followmeto Gunung Kawi with @natalyosmann . Bali is a magic world of people, spirits, gods and demons. Spiritualism and Magic play a very important role in Balinese life. These Barong masks are believed to hold spiritual energy.
#Следуйзамной в величественный храм Гунунг Кави. Бали - это волшебный мир людей, духов, богов и демонов. Спиритизм и магия играют очень важную роль в балийской жизни. Считается, что эти маски Баронга содержат духовную энергию.

Snowflakes in Seattle ☃️⁣

I’ve been a little behind on posting since I got back from the road trip (as those of you who watch my real time stories know 😂😂) It’s been a nonstop barrage of winter the past 2 weeks, snow, rain, sleet repeat - here’s some beautiful photos of nasty weather.
