Repost from @benmcraephotography • • • The veld around me is dry. The winter sun of has not only baked the earth of its life, it has sucked the existence of all around. No birds flap over head, no antelope browse on the grass & no lizards scurry across the ground. I sit in silence I’m in the shade but still I am hot. The only pool of water for many kilometres around stands near me, tepid & still. I don’t feel the urge for a sneaky swim regardless of how hot I am. I wonder ...

The Joshua Tree 🌳 DYK? It’s important to stay on the trail in desert environments like this because the tiny plants and vegetation absorb dust and store water and help prevent erosion. They help keep life in the desert. Without them it would be much harder for life to persist in these harsh climates. 💦🌱 So if we crush them, it can take hundreds of years for them to recover and have real effects on the surrounding landscape and wildlife. The good news is, there’s an easy way to prevent vegetation loss: Stick to the trails! Hat tip to ...
Here, at the point where two deserts meet, the landscape changes from spiky Joshua trees and bigger than life boulders to even spikier cacti, warm sand and wildflowers in bloom. And for a short window of time in the late afternoon, if the skies are clear, the sun shines directly on the Cholla Cactus Garden in a way that makes the top of each plant shimmer like a mirage. The whole day takes on a dreamy glow, and you do your best to soak it in. 🌵🌄 . . . #joshuatree#california ...
No Plan, No Schedule, No Problem Thailand Day One Passenger: Hey when did you book your ticket? Me: An hour ago in the Airport. ***** Passenger: Did you do any research about the airline?

Was für ein schöner, warmer Tag geht zu Ende. Hier lassen die letzten Sonnenstrahlen des Tages die gläserne Fassade des Hauptbahnhofs rot funkeln. Im Hintergrund ragen die Türme der Frauenkirche in die Dunkelheit. Foto: dpa/Peter Kneffel . . . . #abendsonne#abendrot

Wildflower fever was at a peak last week in SoCal. Just search for hashtags like #superbloom or #anzaborrego or Even here where I am taking a picture from the edge of the trail there are plenty of people that are just artfully obscured trampling through the flowers to take glamour shots. I have lots of words about staying on the trails but that’s all it comes down to: stay on the trails and don’t trample flowers. Enjoy with your eyeballs so others can, too!

Hard transition from winter to spring, at the spot where I first saw the California coastline of the Pacific Ocean in 2011 (first saw the South Pacific in Costa Rica in 2005-ish and attempted surfing in it 🏄♀️... once). 🌊😁 Thanks so much for having us @courtykincs @phitzzzy we had so much fun and are plotting another trip to CA without another eight years passing 🌅
The trees surrounding the only Hindu pagoda in #bagan are adorned with bronze bells and gongs, puppet dolls, and wood carvings. A soft breeze would ring these chimes to make a soothing song - just one of the reasons why it's mesmerizing to just stay in the pagodas for hours. #gonetobagan

Auf dem Starnberger See sorgen Wind und Wetter für ordentlich Wellengang. Das lockt den ein oder anderen Windsurfer aufs Wasser hinaus und sorgt für spektakuläre Aufnahmen vor Bergkulisse. Fotos: Sebastian Beck @schafreuter . . . . . #muenchen#münchen
