Photo by Babak Tafreshi @babaktafreshi | At midnight in outback Australia, under an ocean of stars, the branches of this gum tree connected me to the universe beyond our tiny planet. Less than 100 years ago, everyone could look up and see a spectacular starry night sky. Today most city skies are virtually empty of stars. There is a new generation that has never seen the Milky Way. Natural night sky has became a forgotten part of nature, an essential element of our environment, worthy of preservation.

Photo by Julia Wimmerlin @juliawimmerlin | This mother-to-be was hiding in the bushes first when were were passing by in a small motor boat in a very shallow river going through the rainforest. Since we were really slow she made some movement and that's how we heard her. We stopped and after a while she came out to the river bank. She was first quite suspicious of us but little by little she did what she came to do - she started drinking. According to our guide this must have been a previous resident of an orangutan rehabilitation center who was pregnant. Living really far away from the main tourist route and main feeding stations she seemed much wilder than the ones I saw before (at the feeding stations). I was even surprised she did not disappear in the bushes as soon as she saw us. But it seemed like she was really thirsty and kind of curious and hoping to get some food so she decided to try her luck with us. #YourShotPhotographer

Photo by @jodymacdonaldphoto | If you've ever wanted to get stranded on a remote tropical island, this would be a great choice. The Kingdom of Tonga is an archipelago in the South Pacific that consists of over 150 beautiful tropical islands that have white sand beaches and breathtaking lagoons with endless snorkeling and diving opportunities. It took us hundreds of miles of sailing to get here, but once we arrived, it was definitely worth the effort. #tonga #kingdomoftonga #southpacific

Small, crystal clear icebergs sit on the shore of the Atlantic Ocean next to the Jökulsárlón glacial lagoon. This black sand beach, formed from volcanic rocks, is known as Diamond Beach, one of the most popular tourist spots in the country. #diamondbeach #jokulsarlon #glacierlagoon

Yes, Janessa Leoné (@janessaleone) has always loved hats. “I’m a child of the 80s, so I always wore the big hats with the flowers on the front of them. Once I developed my own personal style in high school and college, I loved finding vintage hats.” In 2014, the lifelong hat enthusiast started her own brand in Santa Monica, California. “The way that I design and the way that I go about my creative process is very carefree and focused on a really good balance of quality of life.”⁣

I’m going to feature something this week which might not be that popular, but something I think is both important and interesting.
⠀⠀
Industrial History.
⠀⠀
We people visit historic sites, they are usually visiting ancient ruins, cathedrals or temples, or city centers that are several hundred years old. All of those are fine things and I’ve certainly visited my fair share of them.
⠀⠀
One thing I always like visiting are the overlooked sites which help us understand how our modern world came about. Everything isn’t churches and museums. Ore had to be mined and processed to make metals. Techniques had to be developed to create machines. Roads and railways had to be laid down.
⠀⠀
One reason people don’t visit these places is because they usually aren’t preserved. Few people thought to preserve a factory from the 19th or early 20th century. That isn’t old enough to be “history”.
⠀⠀
The first site I’m going to feature is the copper mine in Falun, Sweden. The mine operated for almost 1,000 years, only ceasing production in 1992.
⠀⠀
In the 17th century, the mine was responsible for the vast majority of copper in Europe, and was the single biggest revenue source for the Kingdom of Sweden.
⠀⠀
Working in the mine hundreds of years ago was horrific. Large fires were lit inside to crack the rock so it could be extracted. Miners would often go months without seeing daylight. ⠀⠀
The mine tour is fascinating and gives you a look into how mining was conducted centuries ago. The area around the mine was originally built for mine workers, but today it is just regular housing for people in the city. ⠀⠀

Blue hour 💙 I’ve been challenging myself recently to shoot a series with just one lens - here’s 10 shots I took on the walk to my neighborhood wine shop a couple days ago. Any guesses on the lens?
