Wakhi Family from the Wakhan Corridor, Badakhshan, Afghanistan. * * Badakhshan province is a fascinating region in Afghanistan. Located in the most northeastern panhandle shaped valley on the Silk Road, it proves to be a formidable stronghold of the Northern Alliance to this day. A Tajik warlord, Ahmad Shah Massoud, also known as the Lion of Panjshir, is adorned on many vehicles as decals, and posters as the hero who united the northern Afghan tribes against the Taliban rule in the 1990s. Assassinated two days before 9/11 by a suicide bomber crew masquerading as cameramen, it is thought that his death were to strike a fatal blow on northern resistance against the Taliban. But as of September 2018, when I went there, the region is one where I see women wandering freely and in villages not adorned head to toe in a hijab. The Badakshan people, mostly ethnic, Wakhi live off the bread from the wheat and crops they grow, living an agrarian existence outside of time enduring some of the harshest climate in the country. They are a living symbol to the Afghan resolve and the pride and strength of its people. * * From my new series, “Faces, Afghanistan”. * * * #portrait #portraiture #family #afghanistan #wakhan #wakhancorridor #wakhi #ethnicminority #nationalgeographic #ethnography #tribes #nomads

A heritage for my sons... On a recent trip within Africa, I had the privilege of finding my best Black Rhino sighting to date... And I couldn't help but wonder as I sat there in awe... Will my sons ever get to experience this? Will they be able to share such scenes with their children? And as I thought about this, and the many many Rhinos which have suffered a grim fate, I remember the ones who are out there trying to save our heritage and scenes of tomorrow. My brothers... My brave brothers... The fight has been crushing... The casualties many... The burdens tiresome... Yesterday was theirs... Tomorrow will be ours... Let us not forget the fallen... Let us not forget the deeds... For their memories, Their honour, Their survival, Must be echoed... We will be victorious. Brothers... We will see our beloved again... We will see tomorrow... We will have our heritage... Our sons will see... #pilanesberg #rememberingrhinos #iamnikon #iamnikonsa #nikonsa #nikon 📷 #wildanimals #bbcearth #bbcwildlife #planet #planet_of_animals #planetearth #natgeowild #nationalgeographic #wildnout #featured_wildlife #discovery #instawildife #instawild #instagram

People often question if the Maldives is really as pretty as the photos portray. We have to admit, it’s hard to believe - the beaches are really as white, the oceans really as blue and the landscape really as pretty as it is. Taking amazing, Insta-worthy shots will cost you very little effort, regardless of season or weather. #nophotoshop #pictureperfect #truestory #lifesabeach #whitebeach #blueocean #instaworthy #holiday #vacation #islandlife #paradise #blueplanet #TripAdvisor #nationalgeographic #lonelyplanet #djiglobal #drone #travelbydrone #dronestagram #natgeoyourshot #bliss #blissdhigurah #Dhigurah #Maldive #Malediven #Maldivas #Мальдивы #马尔代夫 #Maldives
