Photo by Ira Block @irablockphoto | A full moon rises over the dunes of Erg Chebbi, near Merzouga, Morocco. Ergs are seas of dunes formed by wind-blown sand over time. Some of the dunes rise up to 150 meters (500 feet) from the surrounding desert. Besides visiting tourists, the area is also popular for sandboarding, a sport similar to snowboarding. #followme for more travel imagery @irablockphoto #travel #morocco #sanddunes #irablock

These goats are the source of Mongolian cashmere, some of the finest in the world.

Photo by Ira Block @irablockphoto | A young eagle hunter with his golden eagle. The 4,000-year-old sport of hunting with eagles still exists today in the Kazakh region of western Mongolia, Buyan-Ölgii Province, where there are close to 100 hunters—some of them women. Red or corsac fox are the most common animals hunted by these female golden eagles, usually in the winter when the eagles can spot their prey easily in the snow. The hunters talk and sing to the eagles to imprint their voices on them, and after a number of years the eagles are set free into the wild. Hunting with eagles comes from the sport of falconry, which is practiced worldwide. #followme @irablockphoto for more images from the world. #eagle #eaglehunters #mongolia #irablock

Bagan is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, with the densest concentration of Buddhist temples, pagodas, stupas and ruins in the world, most dating from the 11th and 12th centuries.

Photo by Ira Block @irablockphoto | A tourist balloon flies over a temple in Bagan, Myanmar. Tourism is an important part of the Burmese economy, and the temples in Bagan are a popular destination. During the Bagan kingdom's height, between the 11th and 13th centuries, there were over 10,000 Buddhist pagodas, temples, and monasteries in the region. In August 2016, a 6.8-magnitude earthquake destroyed some of the 2,500 remaining temples in the area and forced others to close to tourists due to safety concerns. #followme @irablockphoto to see more images from the world. #myanmar #burma #bagan #irablock

Photo by Ira Block @irablockphoto | A boater heads out in the early morning fog on Inle Lake in Myanmar. This freshwater lake, in Shan state, is the second largest in the country, measuring about 13 miles long and 7 miles wide. It's home to the Intha fisherman, known for their "leg rowing" and conical fishing nets. Besides fishing, the lake supports unusual activities, like farming on floating islands and a textile industry that creates cloth from the stems of the lotus plant. Villages on the lake are made up of homes built on stilts that are connected by bamboo walkways. #followme @irablockphoto to see more images from the world. #inlelake #myanmar #fishing #irablock

Photo by @irablockphoto | A young elephant gets playful and sprays water during its bathtime in a river in Northern Thailand. When the logging industry ended in Thailand many elephants were out of work. They could not be returned to the wild because being raised by humans they lost their wild skill set. It is expensive to feed an elephant and many had to go to work carrying tourists and working in shows - not good for the elephants . As a result in the Chiang Mai region many elephant sanctuaries evolved to take care of these gentle giants. Tourists who visit the sanctuaries contribute to the care of these animals. #elephants #chiangmai #thailand #irablock
