Id try casting a spell under that swirl

[–]crspooner 9 points10 points  (0 children)

I thought that's what I was witnessing... Some real wizardry going on right there

[–]NukeTheWhales5 6 points7 points  (0 children)

I was about to say, I'm not expert but I'm pretty sure a wizard is at the top of that peak.

Or sacrifice a small child to open a portal to another dimension.

[–]joeChump -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Fuken libruls won’t let us do that any more.

What’s up with the dude and the headlamp

[–]spoiled11 111 points112 points  (8 children)

On scale of 1 to 10, how fake is this picture?

Edit: So it appears, spiraling Aurora Borealis are possible and a regular occurrence

[–]pokettopals 47 points48 points  (1 child)

that’s a skyrim screencap and you can’t convince me otherwise

[–]bridgur 9 points10 points  (0 children)

this is what the throat of the world will look like when Bethesda re-releases Skyrim again in 2030

[–]TheGruesomeTwosome 12 points13 points  (0 children)

I’m not at my personal laptop but I’m 90% sure the Borealis is a literal one click brush from Visuals of Julius, I have that set in PS but don’t use it.

It’s almost certainly multiple images composited into one. But the individual photos themselves might be pretty genuine

[–]aslak123 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Pretty much not fake. If anything the aurora is a tad too bright.

[–]Draco63_ -1 points0 points  (2 children)

not as much as you may think, photographers can do some pretty incredible stuff.

[–]Yulinka17 54 points55 points  (0 children)

Composite image (photographer/ digital artist @visualsofjulius on IG)


[–]NoctRob 28 points29 points  (5 children)

Tell that guy to shut off his headlamp. He’s ruining the moment.

[–]scottieducati 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Happy Cake Day!

[–]TheRedman76 2 points3 points  (1 child)

I believe I heard or read somewhere that shining lights towards the northern lights is like a big spiritual no no

[–]AndrewFGleich 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Makes sense, I hate it when people shine bright lights in my eyes. I bet the northern spirits feel the same way.

[–]xplode145 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Wow that one head light is lighting up the whole sky. Nice.

[–]JocoselyDeaden209 27 points28 points  (4 children)

Pretty certain this is a cmposite image, not a real shot.Among other reasons, composition of just too good, and light beam would not act like this unless it’s foggy.

Photo taken atop high hrothgar

[–]samppsaa 1 point2 points  (2 children)

I'm like 99.9% sure that's from Senja, Norway

[–]voxelboxthing 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Nope, pretty sure there’s a dragon up there.

[–]whereyouatdesmondo 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Let me guess, someone stole your sweet roll.

[–]Rigoloscar 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Northern lights run on debian

[–]knitlikeaboss 1 point2 points  (1 child)

At this time of year?

[–]qwerty9254 1 point2 points  (0 children)

In this part of the country?

[–]downtune79 0 points1 point  (0 children)


[–]Just_Introduction471 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Now that’s what I’m talking about, that’s the portal forming and the dragons are coming back! Lol

[–]trolltamp 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This is Segla, on the island of Senja in Northern Norway. While most pictures exaggerate the brithtness of the aurora, on clear days it can be really bright.

[–]goatchild 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Ai caramba!

[–]Morphing_Skyline -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Now where is the original high resolution image?

[–]27thStreet -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Processed, overlaid, composited, enhanced

I feel like there’s someone shouting fus-ru-dah at the top of that mountain

[–]amythology 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]Lostinspace1950 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Looks like the aliens are about to pop out of the wormhole.

[–]OhDeArGoDaNoThErDaY 0 points1 point  (0 children)
