First stop Bluff Hill Domain: During World War II and for a few years after hostilities ended, this lookout was occupied by 77 Battery 10 Coast Regiment NZA. The Battery manned two 6-inch guns in concrete emplacements built on a strategic site offering commanding views of Hawke Bay - the highest point of the Bluff Hill Domain, above the Port of Napier. The gunners' barracks were located behind the Battery. A plaque, with the following inscription, records the army's presence on the site. #bluffhilldomain . . . #hellohawkesbay #napiercity #capturenz #realmiddleearth #neverstopexploring #thelonelyplanet #theglobewanderer #hikingtheglobe #travelnz #newzealandguide #cultuetrip #newzealandvacations #passporttoearth #destinationnz #nzmustdo #purenewzealand #earthpixnz #neverstopexploring #ourplanetdaily #beautifulnz #travelcollectively #traveling_oceania #project_planet #gottalovenz #kiwipics #gonz #tourismnz @lonelyplanet @beautiful.newzealand @destinationnz @purenewzealand @nomad.travels @travelnewzealand @new.new.zealand @brandnewzealand @newzealandguide
“Geisha are not courtesans, and we're not wives. We sell our skills, not our bodies. We create another secret world, a place only of beauty. The very word "geisha" means artist, and to be a geisha is to be judged as a moving work of art.” ~ from “Memoirs of a geisha” . There is probably nothing more mysterious about Japanese culture than Geisha or Geiko. The reason probably being that they lack an equivalent in western cultures. Those traditional female hostesses perform various arts such as classical music and dance, games, tea ceremonies and conversation to entertain their guests. I was fascinated by their mesmerizing and almost magical appearance and did some research lately that left me determined to learn more. The picture shows a Maiko (apprentice) entering a traditional ochaya (“tea house”) in Gion. There are certain features that distinguish a maiko from a fully qualified geiko: their hairstyle, the scarlet-fringed collar hanging loosely in the neck, her bright and colorful kimono with the obi hanging down to her ankles and the traditional wooden plateau shoes (okobo). . . . . . #geisha #geiko #kyoto #gion #tradition #kimono #Japan #lovejapan #ig_japan #instajapan #instagramjapan #japantravel #japan_vacations #explorejpn #art_of_japan_ #aoj_bokeh #sonyalpha #travelphotography #natgeotravel #travellingthroughtheworld #globalcapture #hello_worldpics #insta_worldz #stayandwander #timeoutsociety #passporttoearth #passionpassport #traveldreamseekers #exploretocreate #exploremore
People travel for a multitude of reasons. Some seek adventure and some go to places where they can hit the reset button. Personally, traveling is my form of escapism and I’m blessed to be in the land of fantasy called Aotearoa where I get to visit Narnia or Hobbiton anytime! . . . .. . . . . . . . . . #newzealand #nz #NZMustDo #destinationnz #newzealandvacations #newzealandguide #purenewzealand #newzealandfinds #purenz #capturenz #northisland #southisland #realmiddleearth #kiwi_photos #kiwipics #ig_newzealand #igersphilippines #airnzshareme #lifeofnewzealand #gottalovenz #cathedralcove #beachesnresorts

You know how “adults” always get upset with “youngins” for feeling invincible and being a little wild because of that? • As a bonafide adult now, 💁🏼‍♀️ I wonder if that invincibility doesn’t have to go away. No, listen, Linda!! It’s probably a lot like Imagination and Wonder; sometimes those die with painful experiences, sometimes they shrivel up from neglect, sometimes they just don’t grow into anything else because they were weak in the first place, while sometimes, they grow into something better. • Maybe that “invincibility” that made you reckless as a child just turns into a slightly smarter, and perhaps, more wild exploration of the world as you get to see it more, understand it better, and engage it harder. I think true bravery requires you to be a little wild and a lot smart. 🦁🤓 • Photo @chandlerbranzell

The world is at my fingers tips waiting for me to explore. • • Any destinations you suggest I need to visit?
One of the first reasons I actually picked up a camera was because I wanted to shoot for the stars (literally), but I could never quite locate the milky way in the few opportunities I had to shoot them (so many things have to go right for astrophotography) That is of course until I happened to chance upon it the other night next to a roadside inn we were staying at. I was so shook I stayed out in subzero temps for a few hours and got a sore throat the next day but #worth
In nooks and crannies. Walking through #johnstoncanyon in the winter you get to see water in many forms in one composition. • #waterislife • ISO100 70mm f/32 1.6sec • #banffnationalpark #banff #albertaparks #waterfall #winterwonderland #longexposure #iceandsnow #water #travelphotography #travelstoke #discoverearth #passporttoadventure #passporttoearth #createexplore #modernmountainman
“Photography is a love affair with life” ... Burk Uzzle I have always been drawn to the sea, the smell of salt on the breeze, the cry of a gull and the sound of waves crashing in to break along the shore! These are the times I love the most, I am at peace with the universe 💫 The act of taking a picture, not only preserves the moment, but can also evoke memories of times long past. Scenes like this for me are a reminder of my home, to growing up in Cornwall, where many an hour was spent watching the surf, the clouds moving across the sky, or being mesmerized by a beautiful sunrise or sunset ... What about you? 🔸🔸🔸🔸🔸🔸🔸🔸🔸🔸🔸🔸🔸🔸🔸🔸🔸🔸🔸🔸🔸🔸🔸🔸🔸🔸🔸 #love my life #memories #theunknownadventurer #passporttoearth #awesomeearth #beautiful_destinations #nikon #photooftheday #ig_captures #capturedconcepts #dreamcatcher #cloudporn #traveltheworld #roamtheplanet #exploretocreate #gameoftones #memoriesforlife #thevisualcollective #moodygrams #colourmyworld #awesome #nature_perfection #earthpix #instadaily
Im a snorkelling shark searching for my prey 😜 since mum taught me how to breath underwater I cant stop. Its a whole new world down there. Still hunting for the perfect spot for me to snorkel at. If you know of any, please let me know.
Stone statues of Khai Dinh tomb, eternal bodyguards of the 12th emperor of Vietnam. This tomb took 11 years to complete and is an interesting mix of European and Asian architecture due to the emperor visiting France and being influenced by it. . . . . #Vietnam #earthpix #moodygrams #earthfocus #artofvisuals #visualoflife #ourplanetdaily #beautifuldestinations #LENSbible #main_vision #trapping_tones #agameoftones #illGramers #travelphotography #gramslayers #landscapephotography #amazing_shots #nature #amazing_shots #naturegeography #natureonly #IllegalVisuals #visualmuseum #theIMAGED #igtones #passporttoearth #TheCreativeShots #vietnamcharm #vietnamwonders
This photograph is one of my personal favorites! Back at this day light wasn’t perfect, so I actually went out to do some test shots on location, but then light changed quickly and I was able to get this photograph. Since I had no gradient filter with me the lower part of the picture needed a longer exposure than the part with the sky. So I did two exposures and combined them in the post-processing. What do you think? Do you like this picture as much as I do? . . . . . . #ourfinland #outdoorfinland #visitingfinland #beautyofsuomi #suomiretki #luxuryfinland #living_europe #moodygrams #shotsofresh #visualsofearth #lensbible #visualambassadors #awesome_photographers #landscapecapture #travellingthroughtheworld #agameof10k #passporttoearth #folkscenery #stayandwander #canon_photos #instagood10k #earthfocus #earthofficial #nakedplanet #ourplanetdaily #tlpicks #gothere #canon #thegreatnorth #beautifuldestinations
It's way too easy to become bored and unsatisfied. Too often we think new things, more money, better stuff, and more excitement will make us happier. But usually all these things do is show us that happiness isn't really connected to what we own at all. It's more a state of mind, a habit of appreciating what you have, and thought patterns that determine how positively we see the world. If you let negative emotions and thoughts control your mind, you'll never find fulfillment. Enjoy each moment for what it has to offer and find a way to see the spectacular aspects of ordinary circumstances.
☞ Is worth to visit this beautiful city at least once in lifetime 🍝 🇮🇹 🔝

Thachäl Dhäl (Sheep Mountain), provides breathtaking views, fantastic hiking with the chance to spot Dall sheep. I can’t wait to get over this miserable cold I have and get back out there.

Any beautiful places in the world that you want to go back? I surely wanna go back to the Jurassic Coast in England 🇬🇧 It’s so pretty and I fell in love with it...💕 I wish I would start actually using Instagram earlier so I would have walked further to another side where I could take a much better shot with a better angle of Durdle Door 😂 * * * * * * * * #jurassiccoast #durdledoor #dorset #uk_shooters #ig_color #theimaged #shotzdelight #artofvisuals #createcommune #map_of_europe #visituk #lovegreatbritain #instabritain #topukphoto #ukpotd #photosofbritain #agameoftones #ig_europe #liveuk #photosofengland #visitEngland #Englandmylove #canonuk #thehub_aqva #awesome_earthpix #outdoortones #pocket_waters #water_shots #travelsfunnel

Time for a change, i will make a short serie of B&W about Hue, this one can be considered as a transition ! What struck me there were the tones and textures of those doors. I felt like the "oldschool" mix between colors and shades of grey would empathize well that very feature. . . . . #Vietnam #earthpix #moodygrams #earthfocus #artofvisuals #visualoflife #ourplanetdaily #beautifuldestinations #LENSbible #main_vision #trapping_tones #agameoftones #illGramers #travelphotography #gramslayers #landscapephotography #amazing_shots #nature #amazing_shots #naturegeography #natureonly #IllegalVisuals #visualmuseum #theIMAGED #igtones #passporttoearth #TheCreativeShots #vietnamcharm #vietnamwonders
