“Autumn Fog”.

JekabsAndrusaitis-Kemeri-0023__880My husband and I frequently travel to beautiful places outside of our country, but this time we decided to explore the home country Latvia and visited Kemeri bog.
It is more than 8000 years old and is one of the largest moss bogs on the Latvian cost.
This place has become increasingly popular in the past two years since the footbridge was renovated, especially since it’s only about an hour’s drive from the capital city of Riga.

For the best morning sights, come to the tower at least thirty minutes before sunrise!
Sky turns bright orange and you can appreciate the beauty of the thick fog. Small, delicate looking trees, spider webs covered in dew and absolute silence.

Autumn is the best time to visit!
The dark, clear nights without moon are perfect for viewing the Milky Way and the early mornings for fog covered scenery.
All of the pictures were made by my dear husband Jekabs Andrusaitis.

Women of North Korea.

MihaelaNoroc1Over two years ago, Romanian photographer Mihaela Noroc embarked on an ambitious quest to document diverse examples of beauty around the world through stunning portraits of women from more than 37 countries.
Her journey has taken her to a diverse range of lands, including Tibet, Iran, Brazil, and the US, but her latest destination is particularly noteworthy—none other than North Korea, the isolated and rarely photographed East Asian nation.
Traveling to cities like Pyongyang, Sinuiju, and Wonsan, Noroc had the remarkable opportunity to expand her series The Atlas of Beauty to include the women of North Korea.

Her subjects range from waitresses to students to factory workers, providing a unique look at some of the 24.9 million people who live in the country.
“North Korean women are not familiar with global trends, but this doesn’t mean that they are not preoccupied with their look. They are, definitely!” the photographer wrote on Bored Panda.
“They have a passion for high heels and usually wear classic outfits, always accompanied by a pin, on the chest, representing one of the country’s leaders.

During celebrations and other special occasions, they wear traditional colorful outfits.”Noroc is raising funds via Indiegogo so she can continue her travels around the world until she has enough material for a book.
She says, “My goal is to continue and take photos of women from each country of the globe, showing that beauty is in our differences.”

Gunung Mulu.

Contributor: Max Cortesi
High atop the Malaysian mountain Gunung Mulu is an impressive alien landscape made up of sharp rock spires that rise up out of the surrounding jungle like spikes of angry earth.
The climb to the Pinnacle of Gunung Mulu is gruesome and dangerous, so much so that the national park is sometimes used by the Malaysian Army for training.
However those who are daring enough to make the trek to the top of the mountain will be rewarded with one of the most unique and stunning vistas in the world.

The tall stone spikes known as the Pinnacles of Gunung Mulu are stark karst formations that were created as the soft limestone eroded away across millennia.

Hidden so far up the mountain, the formations are relatively untouched by man and the only people to be seen for miles are other pilgrims to the bizarre bit of topography.

It usually takes a couple of days to reach the rock outcropping that serves as a viewing platform for the Pinnacles.

Along the way hikers encounter pitcher plants and toucans along with the grueling terrain. However ladders and railings have been installed to help with the trek as much as they can.

The park at large is also home to a number of large caves that make an excellent accompaniment to a visit to the Pinnacles.
