The amount of effort and preparation you'd have had to make makes this picture that much better! Well done!

Nice pic! Using movie mode? How many frames did you capture? A few years ago, I got the ISS in front of the sun. Only 4 frames.

Good stuff, like an old music album cover. Infact some of the same artists would do covers for video games back then.

My favorite would be the Psygnosis company.

Roger Dean was their artist.

I wish this was a real

Transarctica?

How do I craft this in Factorio?

I thought this was /sub/imaginarylandscapes for a second.

That's an amazing picture, otherworldly.

This is very obviously a still from an upcoming live action movie adaptation of Cowboy Bebop. Or a Ghost in the Shell sequel.

Looks like they captured this photo mid-Inception

This is not Nova Scotia. This is Newfoundland.

And it's an iceberg (in water) and not a glacier (on land).

It actually looks like the house is floating by on a chunk of dirt.

Newfie thanks you

The massive Hindenburg moored in Lakehurst, New Jersey

The massive Hindenburg moored in Lakehurst, New Jersey

When I first learned about the Hindenburg as a kid, I wound up having nightmares of it flying over my house before crashing.

This is literal nightmare fuel to me.

Actually way bigger than I imagined

I know what the Hindenburg’s nightmare fuel is..

Hitler took power 1933, WWII didn't start until 1939. There were 6 years of peace with the nazis before any hostilities.

Captain of Queen Mary 2 compared to the ship

Captain of Queen Mary 2 compared to the ship

Yes, little known fact, under the water on all cruise ships they have an enormous metal cock to satisfy horny whales preventing them from attacking the ship. Like roadies for bands, they take the whales while the boss takes the hot girls.

What is he standing on? The ship's dick?

Bulbous bow

A bulbous bow is a protruding bulb at the bow (or front) of a ship just below the waterline. The bulb modifies the way the water flows around the hull, reducing drag and thus increasing speed, range, fuel efficiency, and stability. Large ships with bulbous bows generally have twelve to fifteen percent better fuel efficiency than similar vessels without them. A bulbous bow also increases the buoyancy of the forward part and hence reduces the pitching of the ship to a small degree.

World's largest container ship

Had one of these visit at the port I see from my apartment one night. Because of the light from the bridge at first I thought they had built huge building next to the port. They are sooo big it’s amazing.

How does it not drop cargo into the sea when it storms?

The containers are locked togheter

Sometimes they still do.

The underwater nuclear test makes the ships look like toys!

In short: They wanted to see if a nuclear blast would affect the naval vessels 'better' than normal conventional weapons.

It's a very interesting read!

Why did they even place ships there?

Op comes prepared

You're in luck my friend!

If I can figure out what vantage point this is from I’ll take one. I live in the area and have a 500mm lens.

Edit: I think I may have found the vantage point this was taken from. But my 500 is a very slow lens and I can’t attach it to a tripod. So I’ll need to shoot this midday, which I won’t be able to do until next weekend if the weather is good.

Anyone has a photo of that view today?

Thanks man, that'd be amazing!

Might take a couple weeks, I think I found the vantage point but I’ll be away this weekend, so I won’t have s chance to shoot :(

That’s a big nope

That’s a big nope

That unicorn is definitely juicing.

How tf this dude even see with that thing weighing his head down

Probably why they're extinct now.

How much you figure that horn weighs?
