Inside the beautiful marble palaces of Agra Fort, where Shah Jahan, the emperor who famously built the Taj Mahal for his beloved wife, was placed under house arrest by his own son. The palace purposefully had stunning views of the Taj Mahal, so as to torture the emperor in the last years of his life. - - - - - #agra #india #agrafort #travel #travelphotography #wanderlust #instatravel #adventuretravel #instapassport #travelporn #roamtheplanet #goexplore #explore #adventure #stayandwander #nakedearth #planetdaily #livelife #ampt_community #global_hotshotz #exploretocreate #becreative #explorethecreative #natgeotravel #natgeoyourshot #natgeoindia
Our life is made up of time; our days are measured in hours, our pay measured by those hours, our knowledge is measured by years. We grab a quick few minutes in our busy day to have a coffee break. We rush back to our desks, we watch the clock, we live by appointments. And yet your time eventually runs out and you wonder in your heart of hearts if those seconds, minutes, hours, days, weeks, months, years, and decades were being spent the best way they possibly could. In other words, if you could change anything, would you? - @official_ceceliaahern

Sunset over Lanai on the #rvfalkor with #CoordinatedRobotics . After a week of prep on Coconut Island, we're finally aboard the #Falkor with one successful mission under our belts deploying our #iver from the ship. There's always endless features to code and bugs to squash, but scenes like this are what drive my passion for underwater robotics. 7am to 10pm work days, back to back for days and weeks can sometimes dim the vision of why I'm in this, but then, a moment comes when there's peace and the mind has a moment to rest and ponder, a moment like I had as I stood on deck watching the sunset over the mountains with the humpback wales breaching all around and the wind blowing fresh in my face, and I felt again the rush of joy for where I am and what I am doing. We have been gifted a world remarkable and awesome in every aspect, great and small. If we neglect the care and stewardship of this world our home, we will be sacrificing what only future generations will fully realize, but may never experience. Our oceans are the lifeblood of the Earth, and contributing to the understanding, exploration, and care of what lies beneath their brooding surface is what drives my passion for underwater robotics. #umichengin #UnderwaterRobotics #umichrobotics #robotics #lanai #oceanography #sunset #phdlife #researchlife #shipslife #discoverearth #ocean #Hawaii #discoverocean #ourplanetdaily #planetdaily #earth_focus #earthpix #earthofficial #aroundtheworldpics #theworldourhome #welivetoexplore
It is becoming harder and harder to find pristine places flourishing with an abundance of life around the world. Often these places are remote and are hard to get to. Palau’s decision to put protecting the ocean at the centre of its national agenda is a critical step forward for recovering ‘paradise’ worldwide - Palau offers a model for other countries to follow, so that everyone (poor and rich) has access to the beautiful treasures of the wild. 🌍🐳 Find out why Palau is just so special in our latest blog story ‘Cocooned by a School of Fish’ at www.themaptoparadise.com/blog 🦈🦈
