Some pretty spectacular crepuscular rays seen from Knipe Moor in the eastern Lake District National Park. I waited for the exact moment when a ray often light beamed onto the small village of Bampton Grange nestled in the Lowther Valley. The moody mountains created a dramatic backdrop whilst complimenting the stormy clouds overhead.
We are at the viewpoint for the Tianluokeng tulou, one of the best known tulou clusters in the Fujian province.
Each of these “tulou”’s (literally earth building), standing 4- stories high and doubles as a fortress, was built more than 700 years ago. It’s still houses many multi-generational families today in these architecturally unique round or square structures. This cluster is now designated a UNESCO World Heritage site. #taxia#tulou#tianluokeng#xiamen#fujiantulou#fujuanprovince#chinatravel#unescoworldheritagesite

🐝🇬🇷”Through travel I first became aware of the outside world; it was through travel that I found my own introspective way into becoming a part of it.

at @princessolympiagreece | The Amphitheatre of Olympia, Greece🇬🇷
OLYMPIA | UNESCO World Heritage Site🌐
Behind Olympia, just 3 km (less than 2 miles) west of the Archaeological site and the Museum of Ancient Olympia, lies the Floka Amphitheatre, a copy of the ancient amphitheatres in Greece. It was built 30 years ago on the top of the hill of the village Floka.
It is said to be one of the most impressive cathedrals of the world, and I have to agree (though I haven't seen nearly all ;-) )
Part of Unesco World Heritage and dating back to 1250-1350 it is a truly magnificent space.
I was in awe the whole time and it is hard to do it justice with photos.
I have always been in love with the early light gothic style and this is a perfect example.
The exquisite delicate decorations and the sleek tall columns was hard to finish with and I feel sure I have to revisit one day. #shotoniphone#iphonexs#panoramashot@apple#marienkirchelübeck#visitlübeck
▪️▫️🔸 1891 vs 2019 Huis Lucas
This quirky building with a wooden gable stood originally in Brussels. It was known as 'Lucashuys'. In the 19th century it was bought by Mr. Verhaeghe-Lebret and under the supervision of architect Louis Delacenserie demolished and rebuilt in Bruges with
view on the Astridpark. Adjacent was Café du Parc. The inscription on the memorial plaque says: Ick heb gebouwt dat Vlaemsche Huys voor d'eenen slecht voor d'anderen pluys wat deeren woorden suer of soet dat eenen anderen beter doet.
UNESCO World Heritage sights of Australia – Tasmanian Wilderness (1982)
This is the Bay of fires at Tasmanias picturesque east coast. Other than you would expect, it’s not named by the red coloured rocks dotted at the beach. There where many fires along the coastline while the settlers arrived.
In a region that has been subjected to severe glaciation, these parks and reserves, with their steep gorges, covering an area of over 1 million ha, constitute one of the last expanses of temperate rainforest in the world. Remains found in limestone caves attest to the human occupation of the area for more than 20,000 years.
I studied art photography at the school of arts in Hobart, back in 2010. I used every free minute to travel around the island and went for several bushwalks.
