sands of time // the endlessly mesmerizing shifting of the dunes calls to mind the impermanence of life as the dunes are made & remade each night.

[2 of 2] Continuing the story of my partnership with @amarula_official: Amarula cares deeply about saving the #AfricanElephant, so with #DontLetThemDisappear through their Amarula Trust – they have partnered with Dr. @Paula_Kahumbu, to amplify her message and to aid in the incredible work she is doing with her foundation @wildlifedirect. WD was the driving force behind the tough anti-poaching legislation which Kenya recently enacted and Dr. Kahumbu has dedicated her life to ensuring the African Elephant will not just survive, but will thrive. She is my newest hero, a woman who is endlessly inspiring. At the same time, Amarula has also launched #NameThemSaveThem which is a dynamic website + a limited edition series of 400,000 bottles of uniquely labeled #Amarula. The number comes from the estimate of how many African elephants are left. Though some estimates say we're now down to 350,000. Using special technology, every single bottle features a differently designed Elephant and a name for that Elephant. No two are the same. Just like humans & elephants! The website allows anyone the chance to design and name an elephant! For every elephant named and shared, Amarula will donate $1 to @wildlifedirect. The link is in my profile to make it easy for you to get involved! ???? #MadeFromAfrica #HandsOffOurElephants

British Columbia has some stunning natural landscapes! This is the rugged coastline around #Tofino. We took a boat out with @tofinoremote to visit some natural hot-springs, but also saw orca whales, bald eagles, and a black bear. Couldn’t ask for a better day… ???? ••••••••••••••••••••• @canadabydesign #CanadaByDesign #AboriginalBC

The Tiger's Nest Monastery, or Taktshang (སྤ་གྲོ་སྟག་ཚང་), is considered the holiest place in Bhutan, where Guru Rinpoche arrived from Tibet on the back of a tiger, introducing #Buddhism to the region. Today, the 17th century complex, hanging from the cliff edge high above the Paro Valley, is a popular pilgrimage site for all Bhutanese. The steep hike takes a few hours. This was my second time hiking up there & I found it especially beautiful in the rainy mist of the summer monsoon, wrapped in mystery & ever-changing light. #Bhutan #natgeostudentexpeditions #NatGeoLodges #natgeotravel #asia #trekking #hiking #buddhism

@Lightroom challenged me to #beboundless, so I set out to explore and capture images from some of the most beautiful and untouched places in Japan in my own style. This first image is from Meoto Iwa, home to the "Wedded Rocks". I thought what better way to start off this challenge than by capturing ???? in the Land of The Rising Sun, in one of the most spiritual locations in Japan ????????#meotoiwa #ad

‘One of the best days I had in Cape Town was a roadtrip to the Cape of Good Hope, the most south-westerly tip of #Africa, passing through Boulders Beach, brimming with adorable African penguins. But the highlight was driving the famed Chapman’s Peak Drive on the Atlantic Coast between Hout Bay and Noordhoek, one of the most beautiful marine drives in the world. Affectionately referred to as “Chappies,” the 9km route with 114 curves surrounds Chapman's Peak and follows the rocky coastline to jaw-dropping views in both directions. It’s not one to be missed.’ – @monicasuma, #lpInstaTakeover #travel #BestinTravel

"The month of Ramadan is a wonderful time — everything is shifted timewise because you fast from dawn to dusk, but when you break the fast it's a communal event. People from all walks of life are welcome. I found my way to the roof of this building, held tight to my phone, and took this picture. The scale of the community amazed me." @msomji, Dubai, UAE #passionpassport
