Landscape/Earth Porn/Pictures you've taken that you're particularly proud of thread!
Here's the same lake, but frozen
Dat haze. Was it really polluted there?
Also all my pictures are from BC, Canada
This is in beijing, it was the worst there. This is a bad pic btw just meant to display the smog.
shanghai, that's actually fog haha the pollution there wasn't bad at all. these aren't pics of natural beauty i guess but i like em so
here's some natural beauty in southern colorado
Wow, that's brutal! I love it that I don't live anywhere close to the major cities.
It's all good, man. I love seeing other parts of the world
Amsterdam at about 7am.
Had the place completely to myself
That's pretty cool how all the dead trees are popping out of the water like that, great shot.
One without a lake that has my truck in it.
Weird seeing water so calm in a city like that
Hiking trip from 2 weeks ago, overlooking the Sunshine coast of BC
taken and edited by myself (1/2)
There's a lake i've fished in a few times that was formed from flooding out a valley and creating a dam, and i always got snagged on the old stumps
Too many filters, bro. Natural beauty is best beauty.
I love going on backpacking trips and looking out my tent to see places like this. Just beautiful.
That's wicked, where abouts is this?
I found a more HiRes shot of this.
fair nough this is it unedited
Alta in the summer ( right next to snowbird)
I see what you were trying to go for with the edit, but it was a little too much, made it look completely unnatural. This is a good pic though
Managed to get a bird to chill on my hand for a bit too
That was Darwin's Bench California
This is Dusy Basin CA
bonneville salt flats
Took this in Dongducheon, South Korea, 2010.
My back yard in the spring, I took this in 2012
I just hope the forest stays there, it's beautiful in all seasons.
kudos on the nice shots. I envy you guys.
I must confess I spend a lot of time on google streetview going to places I could never afford to set foot to
Dig the colours of the flowers with the background, makes for a good blend
Ahh, i was going to guess NorCal. This reminds me a lot of the eastern interior of BC, really sparse vegetation and rocky mountains.
Took this in Seoul, also 2010.
Taken in Seoul, at Gyeongbokgung Palace, 2012.
I don't really have a lot I guess but me and my buddies go out in the woods and urban exploring 12 months a year, and I usually take photos
in this pic i'm standing on a frozen stream taking a pic upriver into the small canyon
One of my all-time favorites. Took this in Seoul, one evening on the way back home.
Mt. Dobong, outskirts of Seoul, 2011.
Another one taken at Tinaroo, in Queensland Australia.
I must confess i do the same, hahah. Don't feel bad anon. We all have dreams, one day it'll happen. I pour almost everything i make into my truck to take me beautiful places like the ones I'm posting, but it comes at a cost of my future (Which i should really start thinking about, shit I'm almost 22 now...) Everything comes in time.
I wish i had forests around me, too much urban development
I'm too much of a chicken shit to go Urban Exploring. I always psych myself out and get creeped out and have to leave, and have never really been able to get over it. Something about abandoned structures really creep me out.
Sunrise through the haze, nice.
It's called Albion Basin at Alta resort. IT's at about 9000 feet. You get about a 3 week window in late July - Early August when all the wildflowers bloom up there. It's breathtaking really. Here's another one
The side of our yard.
2.3 acres, so enough land to do some shit on.
Twas actually sunset, lol. Here's another sunset I took. I'm sorry that you can see my camera a bit in the window, but this picture means a lot to me.
Too much Nope. Hate spiders lol
The next few pics are from Joffre Lakes, under the Maltier glacier
when I see untouched places like that I worry about our earth
like now, we have enough to feed the people, but everyday we keep cutting trees to clear land for urban sprawl, trees that make oxygen for us, and we keep breeding, and we dig and forage and dump all kinds of waste into the air and water.
I wonder if the sky will still be blue in 40 years.
Don't you want to whip out your pecker and daintily push it into the spider's web so it begins twiddling with the dicktip, thinking it is food?
And when it realizes it as an enemy it sinks its little barbs dripping with venom into your dick and makes it swell up and turn purple?
Or you can be nice and just sperm on its spiderpussy.
Looks like you had some damn good soup that night, eh? Lol
Gorgeous. Definitely going on my travel list. Within the next 10 years, i plan on loading up my truck and driving all across the america's and seeing all i can.
Niagra Falls, Canada
Ignore the lack of editing, just took this the other day.
This is Vermont- the state is about 90% forested mountains and always will be- the population is rural and decreasing.
So surely it won't be a bleak hellscape of concrete any time in my life.
Here's some desert pics for you
Red Rock Canyon, Nevada
That's one hell of a wide river
I see you got some icyness going on there, so I will raise you a Colorado may snow storm
Very cool stuff. "Standing Timber" usually makes for excellent fishing. I fish two lakes a few times a year where the same was done. Little Lake Seneca in Black Hill Park in Maryland and Raystown Lake in Pennsylvania. Raystown is pretty wild because it has a maximum depth of about 200'. From one end of the jon boat to the other the drop in depth can be well over 50 feet at times.
This isn't a very good picture but I added in a google map capture for scale. People put houseboats, party barges and bayliner type boats in there. The fishing is incredible too.
Pictures don't do that glacier justice at all. My camera can't capture the deep blue colours it really is.
I've always loved that desert rock texture
I know its not exactly earth porn but still an awesome picture I think, and it's from mother nature.
Fog at Seattle airport, at one point you couldn't see 5 feet in front of you.
Check out Mallows Bay on the Maryland side if you haven't already. Done some great fishing there as well this year.
Ehh i guess. I can't be bothered to learn though.
I haven't had the chance to fish much this year. It's mostly been hiking and 4x4ing, with 1 truck camping/fishing trip, but i drank too much and didn't really want to fish the next day lol
well that's what happens when you have zero damn oxygens
this is northern colorado this july
it's a snapchat haha but i like it
quality is total shit but that's what my phone cam gives me i guess.
isn't nice not having that entire sky not be black from forest fires
Man this would be so much more awesome if the city lights weren't so out of focuz
that lightning is sick. this thunderstorm in shanghai had these amazing lightning bolts but i didn't catch any on camera. i love it though. and yeah i'm living in new york but i love it out west
Nice. I picked up a first-gen Tundra about 3.5 years ago and my only regret is that it isn't 4WD and doesn't have the LSD. Still for the price it was a steal. I've been slowly outfitting it since. Found a Leer cap in VA for only $300 couple months ago and I might try to locate a TRD differential or air lockers in the future.
I will say I kicked myself for every car I'd owned before getting a pickup. Definitely so much more fun for things like camping/fishing trips and way more utility.
I'm a bad Marylander. Haven't been to the ocean in a few years. I don't think I even have any shore-fishing gear at the moment.
tell me about it, but that was sheer luck while i was holding the camera, I have been trying to do some longer exposures recently though
I'm not saying it isn't totally fucking awesome, cuz it is.
That is one pristine night sky, anon. Where was this taken? Looks amazing, but I'm a sucker for stargazing
similar but better quality, same place and all
shanghai must have been an epic thunderstorm scene, if you want a good photo orgy close to new york, go to northwest pennsylvania during summer
this is on nantucket island off of massachusets, I'm looking to try and find one of those tracking tripods so I dont have all those blurs
go crabbing to make up for that lost time
I'm making a trip to Molybdenite ridge on september 13/14, Here's a video
I'm pretty stoked to me looking up at the stars from 8600ft with nothing around for MILES AND MILES
wow that looks sick, I love trails that give you foliage and mountainous variety, if you ever get a chance out west, try driving up past the tree lines
Something closer to civilisation
That's the only stamp I don't have and it's pretty stupid of me because it's only like $5 regularly and I think $2 in my case since I already have the Bay/Tidal fishing license. I definitely need to try soon, either trot or hand lining. There are talks of a moratorium on blue crab since they've not been doing well for some time. I'd miss my favorite food if it happens but it's honestly overdue and I'd support the decision. I hope people can get pollution and over-harvesting under control soon.
I'm going to make that my wallpaper for a while lol, that's my favorite pic so far in this thread.
That's one of the reasons i love exploring mountains so much, is for views like this when you make it to the top
yeah I know, that whole bay area is so fucked by pollution, I've seen so many fish with no eyeballs I could open up a retarded fish sushi stand
craziest thing about that pic is that it's just on the side of some road I had to use when the floods destroyed the road to my house this past fall, it's so crazy where you can find awesome scenes like this in Colorado
Man i think all i got left is just shit with my truck in it lol
Yeah, you never know what you'll find. I've never left British Columbia before, but this province continues to amaze me
I've always wanted to check out the BC, where are the best photo spots/places to see sasquatch?
Lived in BC most of my life, never seen one. Seen moose and bear and beaver and injuns, but never a sasquatch. Go to the downtown east side in Vancouver and drive along Hastings and you'll see some shit though.
Bring beer though, they like it.
Moose errywhere, man. I had one come within 4 feet of running into the side of my truck on the highway. If i was going a little slower, he would have been through my windshield
Took this in Virginia a few years ago, always kinda liked it.
well I do hear Canada can provide some crazy shit
where is that in VA?
This is some Alexandria right hur
On my last hiking trip, a bear was chilling like 20ft from us on the trail just watching me. I got pretty close to him and he still just sat there, which was sketching me out cuz he wasn't even reacting so i walked back to the truck
That bear might have been sizing you up or just couldn't give half a flying fuck in the world about anything
can't tell if it's a brown or black bear
brown bear = death
black bears on the other hand are pretty shy
you should carry that bear spray thingie in case that ever happens again. it could save your life.
oh, and you can't tell by fur color alone. I think it's a black bear because of the shoulders.
Pulpit Rock, Norway
Sulphur crested cockatoo.
120km west of Shanghai. pollution was ~4-5 times worst than LA's worst.
I keep doing this....
Thimbleberry flower from about this month of 2012 in PA.
Man, it has a "You talking shit 'bout me?" face on it.
Have quite a few snakes.. Here's a carpet python out hunting field mice.
Estuarine crocodile. Taken in Darwin, northern territory, Australia. With a big fucking zoom, of course.
Brown/black bears are extremely shy. There's a big difference between a brown bear and a Grizzly bear. Grizzlies will rip out your neck and shit down your throat with 0 warning. Brown/black bears are all cuddly n shit
But anyways, awesome shots, guys. I have to head to bed though. Thanks for all the contributions, been nice talking to you anons.
That's one beautiful dinosaur. Amazing image quality too.
What kind of camera equipment does everybody use? Any recommendations on an reasonably inexpensive step-up from point-and-shoots?
Devil's Lake in WI taken this past summer on my phone.
Appreciate your sharing with us. Guess I'm gonna start loading up the jon boat in the next ten minutes or so. Tell my old man "there's fishing to be done!" Hopefully I'll come back some decent shots to share here or /out/.
I use a Canon 6d. Not cheap though. Pick one up for about $2000
Thanks. Gives me an idea to save up for. Well, I'm headed out now myself. Gotta get that early morning bite. Take care all.
Noted, and thank you as well. I think my sister started with that model actually when she first got into photography work but she sold it before I knew she was upgrading. Might have even been the D6 that she went with.
Now I'm really gone. Thanks again all.
Iago Springs, MI
Took it with my shitty camera during 'murica vacation.
