Pura Luhur Poten, on the sand plane of Bromo, is an often missed Hindu temple, made by natural black stones from the surrounding volcanic area. The tanggerese tribe, scattered across the mountain villages, built this temple inside the big crater and nearby this very dangerous active volcano area in order to persuade the Muslims and Christians from any invasion (most of Java is Muslim), due to its inaccessibility. In this photo you can see the temple and the volcano Mt. Bromo, at sunrise. #bromo#mountbromo#mountbromosunrise#puraluhurpoten#hindutemple#activevolcano#canonphotography#musuui#traveller#indonesia
The ubiquitous Great Blue Heron. These are some extremely adaptable birds, occurring in most any water habitat in their extensive range (from coastal southern Alaska south to northern South America including the Galapagos). They have an equally sweeping diet hunting anything from fish, snakes, insects, turtles, other birds, scavenging, and even robbing prey (kleptoparasitism) from birds like Osprey

Late afternoon delights from Cuba 🇨🇺 #Cleargram by @kstuartphoto#cleargram_travels .
@jeremiahkhokhar here with a pro tip. When traveling use both those tags if you like. If not, just little old Cleargram works. My favorite thing about this image was where the photographer framed the backs of the vehicles. ✌🏽
A vida deveria ser uma celebração contínua, um festival de luzes por todo o ano. Somente então você pode se desenvolver, você pode florir. Transforme pequenas coisas em celebração... Tudo o que você faz deveria expressar a si próprio; deveria ter a sua assinatura. Então a vida se torna uma celebração contínua.

After they banned drones in the national park I almost forgot how insane Svínafellsjökull glacier can look from the air. Luckily we flew right over it on our decent towards Skaftafell airport the other day, coming from the most epic scenic flight I have been on with @flightseeing so far.
Glowworms at the Natural Bridge
We first saw glowworms in New Zealand where we had seen an amazing colony of them at the Ruakuri Track in Waitomo. Then, a few months later, we found ourselves looking at glowworms again, the worms in this picture. Although these worms were closely related to the ones we had seen in New Zealand they were over 2000km away in Springbrook National Park on Australia’s Gold Coast. We had hiked to the Natural Bridge, a cave system with a gigantic waterfall crashing through the ceiling that has a huge colony of glowworms in it. We stood there in the darkness looking up at the glowworms as this enormous waterfall crashed down into the cave, making it impossible to hear anyone talk, while hundreds of bats whizzed around our heads.
I wrote an article about glowworms and how to photograph them, which is up on my website now (jamesorrphoto.com). If you’re in a glowworm cave, whatever you do, don’t use the flash on your camera (or phone) – this can really harm the little glowworms and can disorientate other animals living in the caves. But at the same time, make sure you have a torch that you can shine down on the ground to help you move around safe and sound. Apparently glowworms are one of the most dangerous animals in New Zealand because of how many people get lost or injured in caves trying to look for them!
