This gorgeous picture of a lonely cloud pouring water is unreal

I can't believe this picture is real and not a frame from a movie about a very unlucky guy. It was shot by Australian scientist Huw Alexander Ogilvie when he was flying over the Pacific Ocean back in 2005. You can get a high resolution version here. » 3/27/15 9:45am Friday 9:45am

Good afternoon, New York

There have been countless movies and time lapses and short videos made about New York and yet I can watch new ones about the city forever because they somehow never get old. Here's one that I like by Tucker Prescott which shows New York City around the turn of the New Year. It captures all aspects—tourist spots, the… » 3/24/15 1:00pm 3/24/15 1:00pm

An electric green sky for St. Patrick's Day

St. Patrick's Day is debaucherous and sloppy and filled with drunkards decked in green. The Northern Lights are beautiful and stunning and light up the sky in a wonderful hue of green. Naturally, they're made for each other. Or if not, they should be. Ignore the noise today and just watch this Northern Lights time… » 3/17/15 8:10pm 3/17/15 8:10pm

Staring straight into the center of a blooming flower is so hypnotizing

Seeing flowers bloom in a time lapse is always worth your eyeballs' time but this time lapse is especially cool because it gives you a direct view straight inside the center of a blooming flower. It looks a lot like looking through a dreamy world filled with different rules and different colors and different life. » 3/12/15 11:46pm 3/12/15 11:46pm

Check out the staggering size and beauty of the world's largest cave

Wow. Ryan Deboodt took a drone inside Hang Son Doong in Vietnam, also known as the world's largest cave, and captured stunning footage that shows off a world that looks like no other. You get a sense of the size of the place—the biggest chamber is 3.1 miles long, 660 feet high and 490 feet wide—and you feel its beauty. » 3/11/15 7:03pm 3/11/15 7:03pm

Amazing photos of naked people completely covered in honey (NSFW)

Behold the amazing photography of Black Little. This outstanding series belong to his latest monograph, called Preservation. It opens today at the Kopeikin Gallery in Culver City, California. If you are in Los Angeles, go see it. If you are not that lucky, you can see how beautiful it looks here [NSFW!] » 3/07/15 5:26am 3/07/15 5:26am

I want to spend an eternal summer on this sailboat

This is Salt, the newest yacht concept by Lujac Desautel. It is a sailboat. It has a clean design. It is very pretty. It is not my ideal sailboat—I like classic lines—but it is the kind of ship that I imagine Steve Jobs would have wanted instead of the horror he actually got. I would happily live in it forever. » 3/06/15 1:52pm 3/06/15 1:52pm

First ultra HD video of Mount Everest and the Himalayas made my jaw drop

Wow. What a stunner. This breathtaking video was shot from above 20,000 feet and captures the Himalayas in such clear detail that I actually gasped when I watched it. You get to see Mount Everest, Ama Dablam and Lhotse in their natural glory and the view is just majestic. I don't think I'll ever get closer than this. » 3/05/15 7:59pm 3/05/15 7:59pm

Spectacular new photo of a very special star

Drone footage soaring through Angkor Wat shows off the beautiful ruins

Angkor Wat is one of those unbelievable places in the world where you can't really fathom the history of the ruins around you. I thought it—and all of Northern Cambodia—looked fantastic from the ground but this drone footage shows me that the view is—as it always is—better from the top. The drone footage is stunning. » 3/03/15 8:29pm 3/03/15 8:29pm

Photos so perfect they feel unreal

Daniel Cheong loves digital blending—a post-production technique "that manually mixes multiple bracketed exposures in order to obtain the maximum dynamic range" without getting the everything-is-illuminated effect of overcooked HDR. His work is beautiful. » 2/25/15 11:58am 2/25/15 11:58am

These underwater animals are so amazingly unreal they feel CGI

I'm flabbergasted. I have never seen anything like the closeup images of marine life captured in this short film by Sandro Bocci. Most of them truly look like beings from another planet. » 2/19/15 3:44pm 2/19/15 3:44pm

Snoopy looks so good in this movie poster

There is a new Peanuts movie coming on November 2015. I don't know if it's going to be good or not, but technically it looks like a pretty nice translation of Schulz's graphic language into the 3D world. The trailer below just seems like the classic Snoopy and Woodstock fantasy silliness. » 2/18/15 4:47pm 2/18/15 4:47pm

The thrill of flying with a wingsuit in a beautiful slow motion video

There are many cool wingsuit videos out there, some show crazy close calls, others insane stunts, but this is the first time I've seen something like this. This video, shot in slow motion with several cameras, it's so beautiful and relaxing that it makes me want to try it. » 2/18/15 8:42am 2/18/15 8:42am

Just follow the path, it will get you somewhere

David Ruiz Luna is not a professional photographer, just a guy who likes to travel around the world and take photos of his trips. He just happens to end in some amazing landscapes—sometimes breathtaking, sometimes alien-looking, always a reminder that I should get off this fucking sofa right now. » 2/17/15 5:28pm 2/17/15 5:28pm

Goddesses materializing out of nowhere

Oliver Oettli says that he usually doesn't do stuff like his Power Winds photo series but these photos became his most well known project. And rightly so. They feel magical, as if these women were supernatural beings. No digital tricks here: Photoshop was only used to adjust color and contrast.

Mold is surprisingly beautiful when you look at it up close

Making pasta by hand is a relaxing, beautiful process

I know Chef Evan Funke of Bucato is making pasta in this video—I see it and it's absolutely beautiful—but it almost looks like he's playing a musical instrument. There's so much skill in his work and so much grace in his movements that I can't help but feel like I'm watching an artist at work. » 2/12/15 7:35pm 2/12/15 7:35pm

Good evening, Manhattan

This time-lapse by Dominic Boudreault's is a beautiful, crystal clear view of Manhattan. Even after all these years of coming here it causes the same reaction of awe and wonder in me, both in real life or watching these animated images. » 2/09/15 6:00pm 2/09/15 6:00pm
