The Temple in the Sea at Waterloo in Trinidad stands as an extraordinary monument to the human spirit: a magnificent Hindu temple, completed and consecrated at the end of 1995, standing in the sea. It bears the name Sewdass Sadhu Shiv Mandir, who alone, unaided and ridiculed, built this fabulous monument. Location: Waterloo, Trinidad and Tobago.

2. Photo and caption by Peter Heydt. Amidst the sweltering heat and throngs of people, I was thoroughly delighted to experience the wonder of The Taj Mahal - or at least parts of it. I took many shots, but this one seemed to capture the essence of the place (if that’s even possible). From 1632 to 1653 this “Jewel of Muslim Art” was built. It is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. And likely the most photographed place on earth. So this entry is a long shot! Location: Agra, Uttar Pradesh, India

3. Photo and caption by ad mulhm. My hobby is paragliding and Omarsha every day, especially in winter days and a few days after the rain and Seoul filled with sand, desert and Tfajoh majestic view from top. Location: zulfi

5. Photo and caption by Swapnil Chugh. A bride at her ‘Haldi’ ceremony in India. Those eyes reflected a strange sense of emotions which I couldn’t figure. Was she lost? Was she thinking of the life she was going to leave behind? Or the life that lay ahead? Location: India

6. Photo and caption by Quinten Questel. The unbridled joy at the Children’s Phagwa celebration in Trinidad and Tobago. Location: Tunapuna, Trinidad and Tobago

7. Photo and caption by pin hole. Children in the fields, the sun going down, I’m watching the sunset, but he looked at me. Location: Lumbini, Nepal

8. Photo and caption by Asher Smith. Just Southwest of the Na Pali Coast State Park, nestled on the western coast of Kauai, Hawaii, lies Polihale Beach. This tranquil paradise, only accessible by dirt road, offers a true sense of solidarity with the island and the experiences attached to it. This photo, taken at dusk depicts my brother returning from the ocean as he passes across the sunset. Location: Kauai, Hawaii at Polihale Beach in Waimea

9. Photo and caption by Māris Rozenfelds. Beautiful place, Arches National Park, especially in the early morning. You can find yourself completely alone there - you and the nature. Location: Arches National Park, Utah, United States

10. Photo and caption by KAROLOS TRIVIZAS. This kind of all face permanent tattoo, called Moko, is the pre-European traditional face marking by Maori, the indigenous people of New Zealand. Most high-ranking persons received Moko, and those who went without it were seen as persons of lower social status. Receiving Moko constituted an important milestone between childhood and adulthood, and was accompanied by many rites and rituals. Apart from signaling status and rank, another reason for this marking was to make a person more attractive to the opposite sex. Location: NEW ZEALAND, NORTH ISLAND, GISBORNE, TOLAGA BAY
