In situ Sunday with this tiny Tiger shark tooth!
Exploring caves & the top Bluff on Cayman Brac. Bat Cave & Skull Cave w 🦇 Cayman Brac discovered by Columbus(1503) in a later voyage when blown off course named the group of islands “The Tortugas” for the giant sea turtles. The turtles became a source of meat & commerce until almost wiped out. Conservation has replenished & protected them. 🌊🐢🐢🐢 The Cayman islands are an outcropping of the top ridge of an undersea mountain range. Millions & millions of shells, corals, marine sands & lagoonal mud form the unique limestone craggy shores.  The caves were created by the pounding of the waves finding their way into nooks & crevices eventually caving in the limestone. Swirling storm waters & hurricanes crashing wave created caverns, windows & short tunnels seeking places to erupt up above in some areas. On each side of the island underwater the coral reef ledges drop off 2-3 miles deep into the Cayman Trench. ~ The caves were great hideouts for pirates & were used to surprise the supply ships of the mid 1600’s that came for water & re-supply. The Bluff limestone cliffs rise up 150 feet made of dense crystalline Karst limestone in a honeycomb shape with sharp pinnacles. This “Rock” forms a natural aquifer for trapping rainwater. Early seafarers & Cayman “Brackers” depended on this unique water source. ~exploring Oct 2017 . . .  #caymanbrac #cave #exploring #pirates #columbus #carribean #tortugas #caymanislands #limestone #coralreef #coral #caymanridge #geology #littlecayman @discovercaymanbrac

Views from our bedroom! The walls in here are now up & the post for our doors is nearly up to height. In the next week the lintels will go in followed by a few more laps of bags above tying everything together in this room. Excited to wake up in here someday soon...ish 🤞🏼

Cathedral Cove is a popular tourist attraction on the Coromandel Peninsula, New Zealand
No filters needed on the Isle of Portland today - more blissfully warm climbing on this steep Jurassic limestone. It never ceases to amaze me how easy it is to spend the day in a beautiful part of the world and not see a soul - that’s one reason why I love climbing. #jurassiccoast #jurassicclimbing #limestone #climbing #climbingpicturesofinstagram #portland  #sunnyday
Sunday Spotlight: #septarian ! Sectarian, also known as “Dragon Stone”, is fossilized mud composed of #calcite , #limestone , and #aragonite . In the metaphysical community, Septarian is often used to enhance confidence — therefore, it is very useful for public speaking. Its properties also include grounding, patience, tolerance, and attuning to the body’s natural healing abilities.  We have several different shapes and sizes of Septarian in our store. Drop by or DM for details! _______ #stone #metaphysical #healing #crystalhealing #healingcrystals #crystals #rockshop #spotlight #minerals #coolrock #coolrocks #rock

Amazing walk to Gorsdale Scar and Malham Cove. Snow at the top of the hills as well, felt like a different country. #limestone #scrambling #yorkshiredales
Urban spaces // cream toned walls provide the perfect backdrop for the varying shades of green within this city garden we designed. Arching sedges cascade nicely over the walls, whilst leading the eye over the buff limestone stepping stones.  #gardenexperts #gardendesignerlondon #greeninspiration #greenisgood #greens #evergreens #foliage #plantingdesign #eastlondondesign #lovenature #wintercolours #sedges #grasses #grassgarden #citygarden #limestone #beautifulgardens #uniquegarden #steppingstones #botanist #horticulture #urbanspaces #smallspacedesign #natureinthecity #londongardens

The island of Es Vedrà  Standing at almost 400 metres high, this uninhabited rock island made of limestone is situated 2km off the west coast of Ibiza and is right opposite to Cala d'Hort. Rumour has it the monolithic limestone rock formation of Es Vedra is the third most magnetic point in the world and has long been referred to as the source of Ibiza’s inexplicable energy. Es Vedra is the source of many island myths and legends: some claim to have seen UFOs flying above it, old wives’ tales say it’s the ancient site of the lost city of Atlantis, others have heard siren calls from the shore and mystics say it has healing powers.  Es Vedrà adası  Neredeyse 400 metre yükseklikteki, kireçtaşından yapılmış bu ıssız kaya adası, İbiza'nın batı kıyısının 2 km uzağında ve Cala d'Hort'un tam karşısındadır. Söylentiye göre, Es Vedra'daki monolitik kalker kaya oluşumu dünyanın en manyetik üçüncü noktasıdır ve uzun süredir Ibiza’nın açıklanamayan enerjisinin kaynağı olarak anılır. Es Vedra, birçok ada mitinin ve efsanesinin kaynağıdır: Bazıları UFO'ların üzerinde uçtuğunu iddia eder, eski eşlerin hikayeleri, Atlantis'in kayıp kentinin antik bölgesi olduğunu söyler, diğerleri kıyıdan siren çağrıları duymuştur ve mistikler adanın iyileştirme gücü olduğunu söyler.

Rockfall - located to the south west of Oxwich Bay and occurred 2 weeks ago. On the site of a disused limestone quarry, the blocks (some over 1000tonnes in size) became dislodged from the old working face at the back of the quarry. Failure of the blocks has occurred along fractures within the limestone and this sudden fall is likely the result of heavy rain over the past few weeks #rockfall #oxwichbay #limestone #limestonequarry #physicalweathering #thegeographyteacher #geographylens

Just outside of the city of Da Nang in Vietnam is a cluster of five marble and limestone hills called the “Marble Mountains” - Here there are numerous caves and grottoes which house Buddhist sanctuaries and you can find Buddha statues carved into the inside of the caves - One of the lesser visited grottoes is outside the main entrance at the bottom of the mountain and this is where things take a darker turn with sculptures depicting devilish visions . . . . . #marblemountains #danang #vietnam #southeastasia #buddhism #buddhastatues #buddhistsanctuary #limestone #marble #worldwidewebb #rtwtrip #backpackerlife #travellingtheworld #globetrotters #travelphoto #instatravels #wanderlust #beautifuldestinations #goexplore #mytravelgram #lifewelltravelled #travelmore #coupletravels #lovetheoneyoutravelwith
Janet’s Foss Fairy Magic 🧚🏻‍♀️ Let in the Flow of the Infinite & Your Heart Glow!  Taken from the @yorkshiredales website - The magical woodland setting of this National Trust-owned waterfall means it's no surprise that 'Janet' was actually the queen of the fairies and supposedly lived in a little cave behind the waterfall.  The lime-rich water has deposited a screen of spongy moss-covered tufa underneath the waterfall which adds to the pretty effect of the scene. The surrounding woodland is alive with bird song and the spring carpets of bluebells and wood garlic are a delight. #adventuretime #malham #janetsfoss #waterfall #northernspirit #weekendvibes #weekendgetaway #yogainspiration #lotusmudra #yogaeverywhere #yogalife #yorkshiredales #limestone #tufa #fae #fairy

Malham Cove with the beauties of Northern Spirit camp on our winter gathering weekend at Malham has been so spectacular, connective & grounding! Wow for the wonders of this world 💚  From the @yorkshiredales website - The 70 metre (230ft) high, gently curving cliff of white limestone has amazed visitors for centuries. Formed along the line of the Middle Craven Fault, it has been eroded backwards from the line of the fault by the action of water and ice over millions of years.  Over the last one and a half million years, Malham was probably covered at least three times with huge sheets of ice. As these glaciers ground their way over the landscape they plucked rock from the face of the Cove and carried it away. Each time the glaciers melted, huge floods of water further eroded the face of the Cove.  The water flows underground now, but then, the ground was permanently frozen and so the glacial meltwater had to run over the top. The result was that a massive waterfall once thundered over the Cove.  Today, the sheer rock face of Malham Cove challenges climbers and also protects a pair of nesting peregrine falcons which can be viewed during the summer months diving and wheeling alongside the house martins and jackdaws that also call the Cove home. Check out the Date with Nature page for further information on the RSPB viewpoint. #adventuretime #malham #malhamcove #northernspirit #weekendvibes #weekendgetaway #yogainspiration #halfmoonpose #yogaeverywhere #yogalife #yorkshiredales #limestone #ice #snow #iceforce

#handcarved #stonelettering #alphabet for a charity auction a couple of years ago. Nabresina #limestone hand carved with a hammer and chisel. Each stone is 10 x 10 x 2 cm.
Giant limestone karsts erupt from the water, Green clings to rock and escapes into the sea, A sea dog barks on a floating market, Wooden boats glide without making waves. . Mountains of stacked volumes that tumble, Orange dragons hide in giant caves, A conical hat, two paddles and a boat, Macaques fling down from branches up high. . Flying fish skim the surface like rain, Junk boat sails bleed over peeling white decks, A stone world looms over us as we pass by, Gradients of blue fade into the haze. . Phantoms of fat pulsating jellyfish, Sky of lilac and gold spills under helms, Silhouettes stretch their shadows towards us, Mercury oozes from the wake as darkness falls. . Edible flowers, rice and pink shrimp, Fork lightning with powerful rumbles, Futile effort to capture some squid, Local Dalat wine with a sell by date. . Dusky dawn that is smudged by lead clouds, Hundreds of boats at rest in the bay, Formations that shape imaginative beasts, The ethereal play of light and shade. . . . . . #halongbay #vietnam #daytrip #poem #poetry #traveller #karst #limestone #mountains #boatride #liveaboard #shadow #sea #jellyfish #dragon #dusk #sunset_pics #sky_sultans #sky_perfection #sky_brilliance #sunsetlovers #sunlight #asia #travelphotography #travelphotos #travelshots #naturephotography #dalatwine #smashedcompass
