· Most visitors to #Amorgos come for the #architecture and #culture rather than to soak up #sun at the #beach. The Panagia Hozoviotissa Monastery is open for tours, and offers spectacular #views of the #AegeanSea while immersing tourists in the 11th-century comforts of the monastery. #Hike the rocky #coast of Amorgos or head inland to one of the tiny #villages for a taste of the quiet #life. #landscape #landscapephotography #travel #travelphotography #instatravel #instalandscape #outdoor #nature #worldphotography

#WorldElephantDay, celebrated each year on August 12, was inspired by the #AsianElephants of the #Indian subcontinent, but the observance is dedicated to the #preservation and #protection of all #elephants. The #African bush elephants that wander the #grasslands and #woodlands of #ManaPoolsNationalPark are the largest of the various elephant #species. These and other African elephants are increasingly threatened because of widespread poaching for their #tusks and because their #habitat is rapidly diminishing. #naturephotography #animal #animals #animalphotography #instaanimals #wildlife #wildlifephotography

This starry #night was captured over the town of #Ålesund, about 350 miles northwest of #Oslo on the west coast of #Norway. Ålesund is an important #seaport that’s known for its #ArtNouveau #architecture, including turrets, spires, and other decorative ornaments–all giving the effect of a fairy-tale setting. The town of just 56,000 people has one of the largest and most #modern fishing fleets in Norway, and some fishing #boats have been refitted as supply vessels to serve offshore oil operations in the #NorthSea. #Photography by #stianrekdal / @nimiavisuals #landscape #landscapephotography #travel #travelphotography #instatravel #instalandscape #outdoor #nature #worldphotography #instavid #video

The #lighthouse at #BodieIsland (pronounced ‘body island’) keeps watch over the #CapeHatteras National Seashore, in #NorthCarolina’s Outer Banks, a #coastline dubbed the ‘#Graveyard of the #Atlantic’ for its long history of #shipwrecks. The black-and-white striped structure shown here is the third lighthouse to stand in this vicinity. The first Bodie Island Lighthouse was abandoned in #1859 after it began to lean, and the second was destroyed during the first year of the #CivilWar, 1861, by Confederate soldiers who feared it would be used as a Union observation post. The current lighthouse has stood its ground since 1872. #landscape #landscapephotography #travel #travelphotography #instatravel #instalandscape #outdoor #nature #worldphotography

Popular for its sandy #beaches and glamorous resorts, the #village of #Mellieħa is part of #Malta, an #island nation that’s rich in #history. Because of the #archipelago’s strategic location in the center of the #Mediterranean, Malta has experienced a revolving door of conquerors over the centuries: the #Greeks, #Romans, #British, #French, and #Spanish have all ruled these islands. The discovery of sunken #ruins has even led some to believe it’s the site of the # legendary city of #Atlantis. #landscape #landscapephotography #travel #travelphotography #instatravel #instalandscape #europe #outdoor #nature #worldphotography #SearchWhatYouLove

No, that’s not a #sciencefiction character, but a member of the order #Diptera, commonly known as a #fly. #Flies are often overlooked as #pollinators, yet they fertilize a variety of wild and cultivated #plants, including the flowering #cocoa #tree. That means flies help keep the store stocked with #chocolate. And any fly that works to maintain a steady supply of chocolate is just the bee’s knees in our book. What’s more, flies aid in decomposition of plant matter and control other pests. That’s quite a contribution for a species that’s mainly known as an annoyance. #instavid #instavideo#naturephotography #animal #animals#animalphotography #instaanimals#wildlife #wildlifephotography#SearchWhatYouLove

It may upend your idea of #vacation destinations, but the fishing #village of #Reine, on the #Norwegian #island of #Moskenesøya, sees a fair amount of #tourism. Many come to the village for the breathtaking views, like the one in this photo. #landscape #landscapephotography #travel #travelphotography #instatravel #instalandscape #europe #outdoor #nature #SearchWhatYouLove

No, this is not a set from ‘The Wizard of Oz,’ but a #nature reserve in southern #California. The California #poppy—the official state #flower—grows wild along with other native blooms here. And to help preserve the natural #ecosystem, the flower #fields are not curated in any way, so #springtime blooms vary from year to year. #Photography by @gettyimages. #instavid #instavideo #landscape #landscapephotography #travel #travelphotography #worldphotography #instalandscape #SearchWhatYouLove

The #Dolomites of #Italy are rugged to be sure, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that visitors to the #mountain range must relinquish their creature comforts. #Lagazuoi, like some other mountains in the Dolomites, offers a ‘rifugio’ (refuge), where #climbers can catch their breath, have a meal, and even stay the night. From an expansive terrace, guests can see Averau and Monte Pelmo, two other peaks in the northeast #Italian mountain range. Below this #altitude, situated between the towering mountains, is the village of Cortina d’Ampezzo, which is a popular #ski resort town for some of the wealthiest #Europeans. #landscape #landscapephotography #travel #travelphotography #instatravel #instalandscape #outdoor #nature #SearchWhatYouLove

Whether you get out to enjoy a #fireworks #show put on by your #local #community, or simply enjoy a #backyard #picnic with #friends and #family, there’s no wrong way to celebrate #IndependenceDay in the #US. That said, early observances sound familiar: Toasts, 13-gun #salutes, #parades, and even #fireworks were all common by the late 18th century. In fact, #IndependenceDay was fêted on the #FourthofJuly before we’d even won the war against Great Britain. © Images: New York on Air/Offset | Daniel Sohner/Aurora Photos | Carlo Allegri/REUTERS | Jon Hicks/Getty Images | Will Walker/500px | © Audio: Getty | "Assembly" by the 399th Army Band, Fort Leonard Wood, MO
