Photo by @simonnorfolkstudio | Darius I built the greatest palace at Persepolis. This palace was called the Apadana. The king of kings used it for official audiences. The work began in 518 B.C.E., and his son, Xerxes I, completed it 30 years later. The palace had a grand hall in the shape of a square, each side 60 meters (200 feet) long with 72 columns, 13 of which still stand on the enormous platform. Each column is 19 meters (62 feet) high with a square Taurus (bull) and plinth. The columns carried the weight of a vast, heavy ceiling. The tops of the columns were made from animal sculptures such as two-headed lions, eagles, human and cows, the latter symbols of fertility and abundance in ancient Iran.

Good luck! • The archaeological site of Nemrut Daği in southeastern Turkey, grave site of Antiochus I, 7000 feet up in the Antitaurus Mountains. The mountain lies 40km (25 mi) north of Kahta, near Adıyaman. In 62 BCE, King Antiochus I Theos of Commagene built on the mountain top a tomb-sanctuary flanked by huge statues (8–9m/26–30ft high) of himself, two lions, two eagles and various Greek, Armenian, and Iranian gods, such as Hercules-Vahagn, Zeus-Aramazd or Oromasdes (associated with the Iranic god Ahura Mazda), Tyche, and Apollo-Mithras. These statues were once seated, with names of each god inscribed on them. The heads of the statues have at some stage been removed from their bodies, and they are now scattered throughout the site.

The Greeks called it Persepolis, today it is Takht-e Jamshid; but to its ancient Persian builders of the 5th century BCE, so central was it to their idea of who they were, they called it simply Pārsa, which means “The City of Persians.” Pārsa, awed dignitaries who came from the far ends of the largest empire of the age to pay tribute. The art of Persepolis was brilliant ‘propaganda’, It played to aspirations as well as fears… In this image, published in National Geographic Magazine in 2008, Persian nobles are depicted ascending stairs to the Tripylon hall hand-in-hand, signalling equality among the empire’s elites.

Chichen Itzá was a large pre-Columbian Maya city in Yucatán State, Mexico, and a major focal point in the Maya Lowlands for over 500 years. The city may have had the most diverse population in the whole of the Maya World. The presence of central Mexican architectural styles at the site was once thought to have been representative of direct migration or even conquest from central Mexico, but most recent interpretations view the presence of these non-Maya styles more as the result of cultural diffusion. Here photographed whilst on assignment for National Geographic Magazine, El Castillo, also called the Temple of Chac-Mool or the Temple of Kukulcán. At 25m (82ft) high, it is a type of Mayan calendar in stone: at the spring and autumn equinox, the shadow of a ‘serpent’ crawls down the balustrade.

The art of Persepolis was brilliant ‘propaganda’ of its time - It played to aspirations as well as fears… In this image, published in National Geographic Magazine in 2008, Persian nobles are depicted as they ascend a stairway to the Tripylon hall. The iconography of a lion attacking a bull is a symbol of great complexity and range that predates the founding of Persepolis. Undoubtedly, the precise significance of the motif has changed over time. The lion is frequently identified as a symbol of absolute power and heroic triumph, yet the bull, also a motif of strength and stability, is noted throughout Persepolis atop columns and on principal gateways. A possible sequence for change in the interpretation of the motif may be seen as having shifted from astronomical references, to meanings symbolic of royal power, and thereafter as a reference to the perpetual cycle of the equinoxes as calendrical markers. Hence,some experts note that at Persepolis, come dusk on the spring equinox (celebrated as Nowruz, the Persian New Year), the constellation Leo (the lion) is at its zenith and Taurus (the bull) is setting.

Isfahan was once one of the largest cities in the world, flourishing from 1050 to 1722, particularly in the 16th & 17th centuries during the Safavid dynasty, when it became the capital of Persia for the second time in its history. Even today, this Iranian city retains much of its past glory. It is famous for its Persian–Islamic architecture, with many beautiful palaces, boulevards, mosques, minarets and bridges. This led to the Persian proverb “Esfahān nesf-e- jahān ast" (Isfahan is half of the world). Naqsh-e Jahan Square (Persian: میدان نقش جهان‎ Maidān-e Naqsh-e Jahān; trans: "Image of the World Square") is located at the centre of Isfahan. Built between 1598 and 1629, it is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It has an area of almost 90,000 sq metres (964,000 sq ft). Also referred to as Shah Square or Imam Square, it is surrounded by buildings from the Safavid era, including the Grand Bazaar (Persian: Bazar Bozorg, بازار بزرگ, also known as "Qeysarriyeh Bazaar" (بازار قيصريه).

Photo by @simonnorfolkstudio Huskies photographed in the Kamchatka Peninsula, far-eastern Russia.The use of the term 'husky’ is recorded from the mid nineteenth century for dogs kept by Inuit people. They are an ever-changing cross-breed of the fastest sled-pulling dogs. During the 1930s the Stalinist authorities targeted every vestige of ‘non-soviet’ culture, including native dog breeds. They considered sled dogs outdated creatures that should be replaced by motorised transport, however when their mechanical machines got stuck in the snow they realised the true value of these these remarkable animals.

Photograph by @simonnorfolkstudio Two Lamassu (lamasi) in the Assyrian style, albeit, of colossal proportions, stand at the eastern doorway of the Gate of All Nations, also known as the Gate of Xerxes, located in the ruins of the ancient city of Persepolis, 70 km northeast of the modern city of Shiraz in Fars Province, Iran. In art, lamasi were depicted as hybrids, with bodies of either winged bulls or lions and heads of human males. The motif of a winged animal with a human head is common to the Near East, first recorded in Ebla (in modern day Syria) around 3000 BCE. The first distinct lamassu motif appeared in Assyria during the reign of Tiglath-Pileser II as a symbol of power.

Photo by @simonnorfolkstudio I Kamchatka brown bears (Ursus arctos beringianus) are the largest carnivores in Eurasia. Here photographed emerging from steam in the Valley of The Geysers in Russia's Kamchatka peninsular. The first Europeans who went to Kamchatka observed that the bears here were relatively harmless compared to their Siberian counterparts. However, in 2008, a platinum-mining community in the region was besieged by a sleuth of bears who killed two guards and prevented workers from leaving their homes. Kamchatka remained closed to Soviet citizens until 1989 and to foreigners until 1990 and the bear population thrived to that point, but since the demise of the Soviet Union and the opening up of the region to mineral exploitation and international trophy hunting, the bear population has been put under pressure.

Karymsky (Russian: Карымская) is a stratovolcano and lake on the Kamchatka Peninsula, Russia, here photographed in winter, with the crater lake beyond. Karymsky is the most active volcano in the region and has been erupting continuously since a powerful earthquake struck the region in January 1996. The initial eruptions projected an estimated 30-40 million tons of pyroclastic material, saturated with acidic fluids, into the air, turning the nearby freshwater lake into a toxic chemical soup and decimating its ecosystem. Scientists are monitoring the volcano closely and despite the ecological catastrophe, Karymsky Lake is slowly recovering to pre-1996 conditions.

Great to be invited to contribute some images from my 'When I am Laid in Earth' project, to the Montpellier University / "Un Vernissage pour l’Environnement" exhibition TONIGHT (14 March 2019 only) at the Salon du Belvédère, Place Charles de Gaulle, 34000 Montpellier, France. Exhibition times: 18h:00 to 22:00 • “When I am Laid in Earth” A visualization of the receding Lewis Glacier on Mt. Kenya. A mapping of “time’s thickness” by pyrographically documenting glacial retreat. Using long exposures made in the middle of the night, the resultant images stem from the simple act of walking with fire along the glacier’s previous boundaries... And fire, the primordial element that first provided a gathering point for human culture and, through the burning of fossil fuels, a rapidly changing climate. • Follow @simonnorfolkstudio for updates, outtakes, unpublished and archive material. • @projectpressure @michaelhoppengallery @benrubi_gallery @galleryluisotti @natgeo #photojournalism #documentaryphotography #simonnorfolk #mountkenya #kenya #climatechange #change #glaciers #lensculture #globalwarming #pyrographs #savetheplanet #fireandice @everydayclimatechange

Monitoring solar activity to defend us against devastating particle storms … EISCAT (the European Incoherent Scatter Scientific Association) operates three incoherent scatter radar systems in northern Scandinavia and one on Svalbard. The systems are used to study the interaction between the Sun and the Earth as revealed by disturbances in the ionosphere and magnetosphere. The system has also been tested for space debris tracking of low-Earth-orbit debris down to 2cm in size.

#Repost natgeo with get_repost ・・・ Photograph by simonnorfolkstudio The archaeological site of Nemrut Dağ in southeastern Turkey, grave site of Antiochus I, 7000 feet up in the Antitaurus Mountains. The mountain lies 40 km (25 mi) north of Kahta, near Adıyaman. In 62 BC, King Antiochus I Theos of Commagene built on the mountain top a tomb-sanctuary flanked by huge statues (8–9 m/26–30 ft high) of himself, two lions, two eagles and various Greek, Armenian, and Iranian gods, such as Hercules-Vahagn, Zeus-Aramazd or Oromasdes (associated with the Iranic god Ahura Mazda), Tyche, and Apollo-Mithras. These statues were once seated, with names of each god inscribed on them. The heads of the statues have at some stage been removed from their bodies, and they are now scattered throughout the site. The western terrace at sunset. In the centre is Zeus/Oromasdes. Behind him on the left is Antiochus I, and to the right Commagene/Fortuna.

Repost from @simonnorfolkstudio - Thanks to all those who have checked out the “Private View’ / @simontownsley … meanwhile, another of my images of restoration work undertaken by the Aga Khan Trust for Culture in Afghanistan… The restored Ikhtyaruddin Citadel, Herat, Afghanistan. Central to the turbulent history of the city the structure is an impressive example of surviving citadels in the region. Alexander the Great besieged Herat in 300 BCE during his campaign against the Achaemenids. Known at the time as Artacoana (the ancient capital of Aria), Herat was rebuilt and called Alexandria of Aria. It is believed that the citadel was first established on its current site during this period.

Photo by @simonnorfolkstudio | Established in 1606, the Vank Cathedral in the New Julfa quarter of Isfahan, Iran, is dedicated to the hundreds of thousands of Armenian deportees that were resettled by Shah Abbas I during the Ottoman War of 1603-1618. More correctly known as the Holy Savior Cathedral (Armenian: Սուրբ Ամենափրկիչ Վանք; Persian: کلیسای آمناپرکیچ‎), corridors of successive arches lead into a fabulous interior blending both Armenian Christian iconography and Islamic geometric designs. The cathedral consists of a domed sanctuary, much like an Iranian mosque, but with the significant addition of a semi-octagonal apse and elevated chancel more usually seen in western churches. The adjacent library contains over 700 handwritten books, including the first book printed in Iran.

Photo by @simonnorfolkstudio | On assignment for National Geographic magazine, I photographed members of the Grand Lodge of the State of Israel of Ancient, Free, and Accepted Masons with some guest masons from foreign lodges, in Zedekiah’s Cave under the Old City of Jerusalem. Freemasonry consists of fraternal organizations that trace their origins to the local fraternities of stonemasons, which, since the end of the 14th century, regulated the qualifications of stonemasons and their interaction with authorities and clients. There are 50 lodges in Israel, with a total of about 1,200 brothers. There are special lodges, such as one named for the great illusionist Houdini, who was a Freemason. Prospective candidates for that lodge must take a course in magic and put on a magic show in a school, hospital or similar institution. There’s also a Mozart lodge, after the composer, who also belonged to the Freemasons (members have to have an interest in music). Masonry was reestablished in England in 1717 as a ceremonial organization, and the first Masonic lodge in the Holy Land, known as the Royal Solomon Mother Lodge No. 293, met in this cave on May 7, 1873. Famous Freemasons abound: 14 American presidents, including George Washington; Mark Twain; and even Theodor Tobler, Swiss inventor of Toblerone chocolate, whose design is said to be Masonic. In this picture the brothers are linking hands to symbolize the chain of fellowship.

Я попросил у Бога наказать моего врага — и Бог сказал мне: «Нет. Ему суждено стать твоим лучшим другом». Я попросил Бога даровать мне терпение — и Бог сказал мне: «Нет. Терпение — результат испытаний. Его не даруют, ему учатся». Я попросил у Бога забрать мою гордыню — и Бог сказал мне: «Нет. Гордыню не забирают. От нее отказываются». Я попросил Бога подарить мне счастье — и Бог сказал мне: «Нет. Я даю Благословения, а будешь ли ты счастлив, зависит от тебя». Я попросил Бога уберечь меня и близких от боли — и Бог сказал мне: «Нет. Мы страдаем и побеждаем страдание вместе». Я попросил у Бога духовного роста — но Бог сказал мне: «Нет. Дух должен вырасти сам, а Я всегда подскажу». Я попросил Бога помочь мне любить других так же, как Он любит меня — и Бог сказал: «С радостью! О, наконец-то ты понял, о чем надо просить». Я попросил сил — и Бог послал мне испытания, чтобы закалить меня. Я попросил мудрости — и Бог послал мне проблем, над которыми нужно ломать голову. Я попросил мужества — и Бог послал мне опасности. Я попросил любви — и Бог послал мне нуждающихся в моей помощи. Я попросил благ — и Бог дал мне возможности. Я не получил ничего из того, что просил. Я получил все, что мне было нужно. ____________________ ▪️Photo by unknown ____________________ 🔝 #mens_group ________________________ ✔️Follow @mens._.group __________________________________ #wyoming #freesolo #photojournalism #documentaryphotography #simonnorfolk #photooftheday #instagramrussia #naturaldisasters #fineartphotography #seetheworld #sky #landscape #landscapephotography #naturebeauty #pieniny #goodmorning #sexy @natgeo

Photo by | @natgeo _______ #followforfollowback _______________ Photo by @simonnorfolkstudio | The Kronotsky Nature Reserve, a biosphere reserved for the study of natural sciences in the Russian Far East, on the coast of the Kamchatka Peninsula. Created in 1934, it extends to over 10,000 sq km (more than 4000 sq mi). It has Russia's only geyser basin, plus several mountain ranges with numerous volcanoes, both active and extinct. Due to its often harsh climate and its mix of volcanoes and geysers, it is frequently described as the Land of Fire and Ice. The reserve is mainly accessible only to scientists, plus around 3,000 tourists each year who pay approximately US$700 to travel by helicopter for a single day's visit. Kronotsky Nature Reserve has been proclaimed a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.

What a beautiful post by @simonnorfolkstudio, thank you Simon ・・・ In August last year I travelled back to Afghanistan to photograph some of the amazing work being undertaken by the Aga Khan Trust for Culture (AKTC). Here, an aerial video sequence of the Chihilsitoon Garden and Palace in Kabul. Once a 19th century royal garden that was transformed into a state property that welcomed visiting dignitaries in the 20th century, Chihilsitoon was looted during the Afghan Civil War of the early 1990s and left in a severely damaged state. After 3 years of work, the garden was completed in September 2018 and now offers 12.5-hectares of public space for social and cultural interaction, educational programming, and sport and recreational activities. Thanks to AKTC staff members Reza Sahel and Baqir Yaqubi for their invaluable assistance with the drone footage.

Being aware is the first step...but IT IS a fact ✖️👀🚶‍♀️🥺🤢😷🧠✖️🌈 #Repost @natgeo with @get_repost ・・・ Thermal time-lapse image by @simonnorfolkstudio and @klausthymann | The world's glaciers have always fluctuated, but the dramatic melt in recent decades is a strong indicator of human-induced climate change. On the Furka Pass in southern Switzerland, a small shop has maintained an ice grotto, for over a 100 years, carved into the nearby Rhône Glacier, and charges tourists to experience the blue ice. It has therefore been worth their investment attempting to slow the glacier’s retreat. They have spent heavily on a special thermal blanket that has successfully kept about 25 meters (in depth) of ice from disappearing, keeping the ice grotto intact.

Thermal time-lapse image by @simonnorfolkstudio and @klausthymann | The world's glaciers have always fluctuated, but the dramatic melt in recent decades is a strong indicator of human-induced climate change. On the Furka Pass in southern Switzerland, a small shop has maintained an ice grotto, for over a 100 years, carved into the nearby Rhône Glacier, and charges tourists to experience the blue ice. It has therefore been worth their investment attempting to slow the glacier’s retreat. They have spent heavily on a special thermal blanket that has successfully kept about 25 meters (in depth) of ice from disappearing, keeping the ice grotto intact.

In August last year I travelled back to Afghanistan to photograph some of the amazing work being undertaken by the Aga Khan Trust for Culture (AKTC). Here , a couple of images of the freshly restored Chihilsitoon Garden and Palace. Once a 19th century royal garden that was transformed into a state property that welcomed visiting dignitaries in the 20th century, Chihilsitoon was looted during the Afghan Civil War of the early 1990s and left in a severely damaged state. After 3 years of work, the garden was completed in September 2018 and now offers 12.5-hectares of public space for social and cultural interaction, educational programming, and sport and recreational activities.

#Repost @simonnorfolkstudio with @guateperfecta #guateperfecta ・・・ Tik’al is one of the largest pre-Columbian sites. It is located in the archaeological region of the Petén Basin in what is now Guatemala. The ruins lie among the tropical rainforests  hat formed the hearth of lowland Maya civilisation. Tik’al reached its peak during the Classic Period (CE 200 to CE 900). During this time, the city dominated the Maya region militarily, economically and politically. A dynastic line has been established for the city, including at least 33 rulers spanning 800 years. Studies of hieroglyphic inscriptions found at the site indicate that the city was then known as Yax Mutal or Yax Mutul. The site was added to the UNESCO World Heritage list in 1979. Here photographed on assignment for National Geographic, Temple 2 / Temple of the Masks (centre), Temple 3 / Temple of the Jaguar Priest (left), and Temple 4 / Temple of the Headed Serpent (right.)

Reposted from @natgeo - Photo by @simonnorfolkstudio | The Kronotsky Nature Reserve, a biosphere reserved for the study of natural sciences in the Russian Far East, on the coast of the Kamchatka Peninsula. Created in 1934, it extends to over 10,000 sq km (more than 4000 sq mi). It has Russia's only geyser basin, plus several mountain ranges with numerous volcanoes, both active and extinct. Due to its often harsh climate and its mix of volcanoes and geysers, it is frequently described as the Land of Fire and Ice. The reserve is mainly accessible only to scientists, plus around 3,000 tourists each year who pay approximately US$700 to travel by helicopter for a single day's visit.

Thirty Years ago today marks the end of the Soviet-Afghan War. On this day (15 February) in 1989 Soviet troops fully withdrew from Afghanistan after 9 years of bloody conflict… Here from my ‘Time Taken’ project, a sequence of images from Afghanistan’s Central Highlands, transitioning through the seasons and depicting two abandoned Soviet tanks in a field. Walking the fields and streets here can be like passing through a Museum of the Archaeology of War - different moments of destruction resting like sediment on top of one another. The cyclical nature of the images speak of both the constant presence of war in Afghanistan, but also of a perseverance and hope as the land continues to be ploughed and planted. The main creation of Afghan culture is arguably the landscape itself, worked and fashioned over the depth of time, but one has to stop, sit quietly and actually take time, to see it in action.
