Once the family seat of Clan Sinclair and home to the Earls of Caithness, Castle Sinclair Girnigoe dates back to the 15th century. ▫️ In 1577, George Sinclair, the 4th Earl of Caithness, imprisoned his own son John, Master of Caithness, in Castle Girnigoe, on suspicion of rebelling against his rule. He was held there for seven years, after which his father fed him a diet of salted beef, with nothing to drink, so that he eventually died insane from thirst. ▫️ The 5th Earl of Caithness rebuilt large parts of the castle in the early 1600s and in 1651 it was seized by Cromwell’s troops and used as his major stronghold in the North for 9 years. The 6th Earl sold the land and the title to a cousin, Campbell of Glenorchy. As a result of this exchange, a dispute arose between Glenorchy and the remaining Sinclairs over these rights, which resulted in the last clan battle at Altimarlach, near Wick. It was about then that the castle became ruined and has remained so ever since. ▫️ The complex passed out of the Sinclair family but was bought back in the 1950s and was donated to a trust set up for its preservation in 1999. ▫️ WMF listed the castle on the 2002 Watch. The listing increased public awareness of the site and concern for its survival. In collaboration with the Clan Sinclair Trust, Historic Scotland, Caithness and Sutherland Enterprise, the Highland Council, and the Heritage Lottery Fund, WMF provided a grant in 2003 through the Kress Foundation and the Wilson Challenge for the survey, documentation, and stabilization of the castle. ▫️ Image by @glebovaanastasia ————————————————— #scottish #passionpassport #scotspirit #lovescotland #scotland #historicscotland #gameoftones #coastal #scottishhighlands #visitscotland #love_scotland #travelinggram #thisisscotland #dronestagram #scotspirit #northsea #ig_worldclub #igersscotland #goexplore #scotlandsbeauty #visituk #castle #discoverglobe #discoverearth #roamtheplanet #earthfocus #nc500 #gameofthrones #castlesofscotland #preservation

. 99 bends by bus up toTianmen Cave, Heaven's Gate, entrance to Tianmen Mountain. . 📸Sony A7Rii | FE 16-35mm Zeiss | ISO:100 | F/4.0 | Exp.Time 1/320 ➡️Tianmen Mountain | Zhangjiajie | Hunan | CHINA . Tianmen, Heaven's Gate in English, is name for the famous mountain in Zhangjiajie. This big hole, Tianmen Cave or Heaven's Gate in English, is landmark for Tianmen Mountain and Zhangjiajie City. . Wherever you are in those mountain area in Zhangjiajie you need to have lucky. A little bit cloudy is good enough for your best photos...otherwise either not so good enough or too much fog or cloudy you cannot see so much. I was lucky 20 minutes then it was foggy or misty everywhere! . As Zhangjiajie is located in a high mountain area, it says 265 of 365 days at least a year it is raining days and it is really much cloud everyday. However, as soon as you got somewhat small wind or sunshine, it is clear immediately but cloud again next minute. . Tianmen Mountain has an altitude of 1518.60 meter over sea level, but only 8 km from downtown. The cable station starts just from the heart of the city. . 🔎@china_phototour for photo tour to Zhangjiajie and Yangshuo in China 🔎@loves_china for more destinations in China . . . . . . . . #sonyalpha #sonyimages #EarthCapture #BucketList #earthfocus #discovery_earthpix #earthofficial #NakedPlanet #ourplanetdaily #LonelyPlanet #heavenlyplanet #ourheavenplanet #LifeOnOurPlanet #NeverStopExploring #BestVacations #ig_shotz_asia #asia_vacations #theIMAGED #kings_transports #animazing_nature #dscvr_earth #landscape_photography #naturegramy #landscape_captures #living_destinations #travel_drops #hubs_united #ig_photostars #kings_alltags @awesome.earth @awesomeglobe @awesome.naturepics @33thirdmedia @beautiful_vacationpix @earth.magazine @heavenly.planet @marvelous_shots @uniladadventure @theIMAGED @living_destinations @uniladadventure @passionpassport @dscvr.earth @travel_drops_
You've probably noticed lots of hands in my photos. One super important thing to be aware of, especially when it comes to sea stars and other critters who use tube feet to attach themselves to hard surfaces, is to never pry these guys away from the surface they're clinging to. Low tide is tough, and these guys have a hard enough time staying put without extra tugging and pulling. All of the creatures I photograph in hands (whether my own or kiddos') were dislodged, on sediment, or attached to a hard surface that is also being held. Prying them risks damage to their delicate tube feet and stress to the creature itself. Be a good guest at the beach, friends 😎
Hi, it’s @jamesaphoto here for the final day of my @photographerfindr social media takeover. I hope you’ve enjoyed my images during the week, and to finish up I’ve selected a shot that was taken on my mobile phone. It’s often said that the best camera you have is the one you have with you, and I think that this photo embodies the adage perfectly. ⠀ The image was shot using the @Lightroom Mobile camera app shooting Raw on my @Samsunguk Galaxy S8, and was edited in @adobe Lightroom CC. ⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #eclectic_shotz #main_vision #YourShotPhotographer #mytelegraph #SonyAlphasClub #pocket_world #nakedplanet #viewbug #sonyalpha #ukpotd #theimaged #watchthisinstagood #jaw_dropping_shots #OurPlanetDaily #EarthFocus #hot_shotz #ig_landscape #osmaps #thelensbible #igbest_shotz #big_shotz #artofvisuals #all2epic #alphahype #hubs_united #longexpo_addiction #earth_shotz #bbctravel

. One of the beautiful contradictions that lies in human is that his ability to recognize weakness requires a lot of strength.

Happiness is different for everyone. For some it’s found in work, in the gym, in a partner, in a passion, in a friend, in a book or in a song. It doesn’t matter as long as you’re out chasing things that feed your soul ✌🏼 What makes you happy? . . . . . . . . . . #pnw #pnwonderland #thatpnwlife #mondaymotivation #stayandwander #getoutstayout #optoutside #rei1440project #roamtheplanet #travel #travelgram #travelphotography #wanderlust #awakethesoul #awakeambassador #earthfocus #explore #exploretocreate #dogs #dogsofinstagram #husky #hiking #outdooradventures #wildernessculture #seattlelife #pnwphotographer #neverstopexploring #adventureisoutthere #beautifuldestinations

Near Mont Blanc summit 😁 True colours!!! 😍😍😍 Really strong wind (80-100kmh) during the climb but amazing view! We climbed it yesterday via the 3 Monts route, starting at 1h45 from our tent on the Col du Midi, arriving at 8h15 on the top (Whoooooohoooo✌), reach the Gouter refuge at 11h and drink a beer 🍻 at night at home... that was definitely a good day! 😊 Congratulations @maudgarigliany for your first Mont Blanc. You where amazingly strong against this hard wind and this long altitude climb! Love you ❤ Even if it's not my first Mont Blanc, my 7th actually, it's every time the same emotion, especially when I did it with my father and this time! . . . . . . #france #montblanc #chamonix #chamonixvalley #climbing_pictures_of_instagram #goodtime #fun #photographer #photography #outdoorphotography #photo #climbing #climb #gooutside #sun #neverstopexploing #nationalgeographic #adventure #instagood #earthfocus #outdoor #mountains #frenchalps #mountaineering #sunrise #neverstopexploring #alpinism #alpine #landscape #landscapephotography

5th January 2018 A kick start to the year and a check on the bucket list ! The moment seems to flow like a molten sapphire and there’s deep blue silence, Neither there is earth below, nor sky above, The rustling branches, leaves are saying that only you are here, Only me, my breath and my heartbeat, Such deepness, such loneliness and me…only me, It all makes me believe in my existence. . . . . . . . #getlost #explorer #optoutside #worldshotz #createexplore #exploretocreate #discoverearth #travelphoto #travelworld #keepexploring #theglobewanderer #roamtheplanet #letsgosomewhere #exploretheglobe #nakedplanet #instapassport #instatraveling #igtravel #travelblog #mytravelgram #sharetravelpics #worldtravelpics #keepitwild #travel #wanderlust #earthfocus #ourplanetdaily #island #travelasia
