Sunlight streams through a failed roof. High up in the Troodos Mountains of Cyprus a vast open-cast mine creates a deep scar in a landscape of quiet mountain slopes. It's depths dropping downwards in cut steps to an artificial lake at its center. High on the northern brink of the mine a small village sits totally abandoned in a wooded stand of pine trees. It has been this way since 1989, silent and still, albeit decaying slowly with time in the dry high altitude air. The people that once lived here were the mining families and evidence of their lives from three decades ago can be found inside the buildings. Desks with half written pages in note pads, 80's pop star posters on a bedroom wall all remain from the day they packed up and walked out never to return. The reason for the villages abandonment stems from the mineral that was being extracted here, during the 1980's the health risks associated with asbestos were being realised and once the world woke up to these risks the market collapsed and the mine became redundant. Moving on became a matter of economic necessity but also I imagine down to health concerns. These days the mine is being made safe by the local authorities, trees are being replanted and a huge effort is being made to attract visitors to the area.

I may not be where I want to be right now • However I'm where I need to be, and you can bet your peaches 🍑 I'm so much more closer, than I was 5 months ago ❤ • I'm falling in love with the journey🍁 • #SabrinasJourney
Stand-up paddle boards, surfboards and kayaks - bring them down to Iluka to experience the beauty of the Shoalhaven. There are various creeks, bays and rivers throughout the shire. With a boat ramp only 300 metres from the front door, there's no excuse to leave your boards at home. So get out there and explore Booderee National Park and the Bay and Basin! 🏄🏼 . . . . #getoutdoors #ig_adventures #ig_explore #instatravel #ig_travelandphoto #explore #theshoalhavenexperience #visitnsw #shoalhaven #ilukaguestaccommodation #getoutofsydney #getoutofcanberra #sydneytojervisbay #mosmantojervisbay #likehawaiibutnothawaii #baynbasin #instasup #standuppaddle #hobiestanduppaddleboards #suplife #manlydam #manlynsw
O local é simples, um pequeno vilarejo nômade no alto de uma montanha, logo abaixo um majestoso mar de nuvens que, desliza lentamente sobre as montanhas menores. A consequência é o brilho nos olhares dos visitantes. The place is simple, a small nomad village high on a mountain, just below a majestic sea of clouds that glides slowly over the smaller mountains. The consequence is the glitter in the eyes of the visitors. ♥️🏕⛰ #worldcampinglife . #Repost @mateuslisboaphoto (@get_repost ) ・・・ . #natgeo #natgeocreative #nature #naturelovers #thephotosociety #picoftheday #trilhas #hiking #trekking #trilheiros #aventura #montanhismo #japragazeta #ig_parananafoto #curitiba #paraná #adventure #hike #guepardoaventura #trilhandomontanhas #mochilão #vidademochila #montanhas #ig_adventures #hike #hiker #climbing #climbingmountains #ig_parana

Spotted these beautiful water lilies at Urunga's new Wetlands Boardwalk, among the beautiful bird life, a variety of funghi and native wetland plants. Highly recommend this walk around a 600m track and just off the Old Pacific Highway 🌻🐝 . . . . #wetlands #urungansw #midnorthcoast #coffscoast #boardwalk #naturespotting #nativeflowers #nativeplants #aussienatives #roadtrip #ig_australia #ig_adventures #ig_travelandphoto #ig_boardwalk #ig_wetlands #instaflower #waterlily #ilukaguestaccommodation #holidayvibes #getoutdoors #ig_explore #freefun #outdooractivity #visitnsw
I love quiet contemplative places, where you can enjoy the surriundings but also examine your own thoughts and make sense of things that have been whirring around for a while. Photo taken in the same village as the previous shot.

29 years since it was abandoned, this small village high in the Troodos Mountains of Cyprus is gradually decaying and falling apart. Slipped tile by crumbling wall by the encroachment of nature. It feels like a long drawn out execution of sorts to a soundtrack of total silence.

Com toda certeza o Camapuã é minha montanha favorita do Paraná. Deixo aqui mais uma tentativa minha de registrar o quanto é maravilhosa a vista na área de acampamento. 1747 metros de altitude. ♥️🏕🌅⛰🎨#natgeo #natgeocreative #nature #naturelovers #thephotosociety #picoftheday #trilhas #hiking #trekking #trilheiros #aventura #montanhismo #japragazeta #ig_parananafoto #curitiba #paraná #adventure #hike #guepardoaventura #trilhandomontanhas #mochilão #vidademochila #macrophotography #ig_adventures #hike #hiker #climbing #climbingmountains #ig_parana #quechua #nautika
Já fiz várias foto do centro da nossa galáxia, mas essa foi a que mais gostei das cores. Nessa eu fiz apenas 1 minuto de exposição no total (tempo que o sensor ficou capturando luz). Capturei no Caminho do Itupava, um pouco antes do inicio da trilha do Morro Pão de Ló. ♥️🌏⛰🏕🌌#natgeocreative #nature #naturelovers #thephotosociety #picoftheday #trilhas #hiking #trekking #trilheiros #aventura #montanhismo #japragazeta #ig_parananafoto #curitiba #paraná #adventure #hike #guepardoaventura #trilhandomontanhas #mochilão #vidademochila #macrophotography #ig_adventures #hike #hiker #climbing #climbingmountains #ig_parana #quechua #nautika
My favourite Australian native flower, the Flannel Flower, spotted along the sandy cliffs of Valla Beach on the Coffs Coast, but also found in Booderee National Park and Jervis Bay National Park・SWIPE left to see the gorgeous actinotus helianthi・ . . . . #seebooderee #flannelflower #boodereenationalpark #visitnsw #actinotus #naturesbouquet #wildbouquet #ilukaguestaccommodation #ig_australia #nativeflowers #visitshoalhaven #flora #southcoastnsw #aussienatives #flowerspotting #ig_flowers #actinotushelianthi #wildflowers #freeandwild #ig_nature #lookslikeedelweiss #prettythings #beachwalks #getoutdoors #ig_adventures #instaflower #instatravel #holidayvibes
O por do Sol de hoje foi assim em Campina Grande do Sul. Uma nuvem gigantesca e escura cobriu a região do Pico Paraná, mas logo ao lado as cores do fim do dia apareceram. Há beleza nas tempestades. ♥️😍🎨🌏🏕⛰⛅️⛈ #natgeocreative #nature #naturelovers #thephotosociety #picoftheday #trilhas #hiking #trekking #trilheiros #aventura #montanhismo #japragazeta #ig_parananafoto #curitiba #paraná #adventure #hike #guepardoaventura #trilhandomontanhas #mochilão #vidademochila #macrophotography #ig_adventures #hike #hiker #climbing #climbingmountains #ig_parana #quechua #nautika

On the platform above the ore processing unit at an abandoned copper mine in Cyprus. Scroll left to see the whole image.

All 4 rotary mine car tumblers, designed to deliver ore from the mine to the processing plant and then tip it in. Shot from the steps of the head gear tower. See previous post for another angle.
