Entering another world... An epic capture of Mexico's cenote diving by @tom.st.george. There are over 7,000 cenotes dotting the Yucatan peninsula, which the ancient Mayans believed were portals to the underworld. While you won’t encounter any sacrifices these days, diving these freshwater sinkholes is one of the most exhilarating experiences out there – from the labyrinth of stalagmites and stalactites to the shards of turquoise light that pierce the crystal clear water.
🌎 Happy Earth Day, Earth! Thanks for providing an infinite number of wondrous places to explore! Oh, and especially thanks for being just close enough to the sun (but not too close) to harbour life itself! 🥰 You're the best!
What is the state of matter of flame? There is no unique answer for this question, but the closest answer is plasma. Michael Faraday (1791-1867) in 1861 wrote a book called The Chemical History Of A Candle that collects six lectures given by him at the Royal Instution in 1848 about the chemistry, the physics and philosophy of flame . He opened his most famous lecture saying that "there is no more open door by which you can enter into the study of natural philosophy that by considering the physical phenomena of a candle." Michael Faraday is a beast!! #Michael#Faraday#flame#fire#lit#natural#philosophy#myth#of#the#cave#allegory#of#the#cavern#plz#stop
Did you see my last post talking about an underground cave you could swim in, lit from above by a huge chasmic hole in the rock? Well, this is that o' so wonderful place.
A friend was telling me about Ha Long Bay in Vietnam, and how its beauty is hard to grasp when you're buried under a wall of other tourists.
There's no such problem off the beaten path in Laos. I imagine the locals make the most of places like this occasionally, but we had the entire place to ourselves.
I feel like if there was an underground cavern you could swim in where I'm from (the UK), it would be rammed 90% of the time. I know I'd be down here all the time if I was a local. Such a special place and the best way to escape the tarmac-melting heat!
Continuando a parlare di colossi da Guinness, nel Borneo si trova la più grande caverna naturale del pianeta, la Deer Cave. Il parco propone molte escursioni veramente imperdibili. Il percorso di circa 7 km comprende sia la Deer Cave che la Lang's Cave. La prima é senza dubbio quella che mi ha stupito di più, ricca di formazioni rocciose che a causa dei metalli presenti,assumo i più svariati colori. Le grotte sono abitate dai pipistrelli (circa 3 milioni...) durante l'escursione non si percepisce la loro presenza sopra la nostra testa, se non fosse per l' intenso odore di ammoniaca dato dal loro guano..l'aria é praticamente irrespirabile. Incredibile lo spettacolo dei pipistrelli che verso le 18 escono dalla grotta.. sembrano un enorme serpentone che si muove in una danza ipnotica. #mulu#borneo#mulunationalpark#foresta#naturaselvaggia#grotte#cavern#caverna#viaggiaresempre#viaggio#viaggiavventurenelmondo#foto 📷
