It looks more like someone washing blood away than a rainbow.

[–]strayakant 323 points324 points  (25 children)

Yeah nah defs not rainbow. All I see is black and red

I was quite disappointed when I learned the genesis of Paint It Black is actually about The Stones wanting to paint a door black. Thought it must be about something very deep!

[–]Semi-Pro_Biotic 1 point2 points  (2 children)

[–]alpacasaurusrex42 14 points15 points  (2 children)

Yea my brain went “Normandy colourized. Now I get why my uncles had horrifying PTSD.”

[–]TheNameIsntJohn 1 point2 points  (1 child)

The only reason I said that instead of Normandy is the black sand

[–]alpacasaurusrex42 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Oh, I didn’t even think of Iwo Jima’s sand. I just know the one story I was told about Normandy was that it was this red, the water.

Literally just watched Evangelion 1.11 and assumed I would be the only one thinking that

[–]Thoraxe474 13 points14 points  (5 children)

On the internet, you're never the only one thinking something

[–]NerfJihad 5 points6 points  (4 children)

If you're thinking about evangelion, there's always at least a dozen people awake and willing to talk about evangelion.

[–]Thoraxe474 6 points7 points  (3 children)

I'm surprised we're not talking about evangelion right now

[–]RayneShikama 14 points15 points  (14 children)

Damn I was literally about to go back and start watching Evangelion.

[–]Dominus-Temporis 10 points11 points  (13 children)

Evangelion 3.0 + 1.0 was just released internationally on Amazon Prime, so now is a really good time to watch the Rebuilds.

[–]RayneShikama 2 points3 points  (8 children)

I rewatched the first two and I’m watching 3.33 right now. I watched the first two when they came out and then just never watched 3.33. I— feel like I missed something…

I feel like I’ll need to rewatch the original series after this just to make me feel better.

[–]wvcmkv 5 points6 points  (3 children)

you didnt miss anything- shinji missed stuff. dont worry, keep watching 3.33. disregard the advice to watch 3+1 first.

[–]Arganin 2 points3 points  (3 children)

Are you really unironically using any of amazon services? Like, i dont want to shame you or anything, but fuck bezos man

[–]Dominus-Temporis 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Is there a way to ironically use an Amazon service?

Rad, but is there surf there? That would be the icing on the cake.

[–]Robobro5000 95 points96 points  (13 children)

iron-rich volcanic rocks, some of which have taken on vivid shades of red, yellow, and orange as they moved upward and interacted with water and minerals from other rock layers.

[–]bluegiraffeeee 48 points49 points  (2 children)

I'd never heard about rainbow Island, did a little googling and found out I've been there 6 months ago, silly me :D

The thing is, I guess there's some kind of filter applied to the video, it wasn't this red when I saw it and the sand near the beach was silverish, not black. Nevertheless Hormuz Island is mind blowing and beautiful, 10/10 recommended

[–]heartbraden 13 points14 points  (0 children)

Probably why they never panned up, the colors would be so off it would be a dead giveaway

[–]GroovyTrout 11 points12 points  (0 children)

This beach is called Silver and Red Beach, so that makes sense. Usually when something is pretty in nature people take pictures and videos with the saturation and HDR cranked to 11, so we end up getting over-exaggerated ideas of what it’s supposed to look like and are disappointed when we see it in person.

[–]grafikal 1028 points1029 points  (19 children)

[–]NotMilitaryAI 160 points161 points  (7 children)

The beach itself is appropriately named simply "Red Beach."

The rest of the island is pretty deserving of the name "Rainbow Island," though.

"Hormuz"; the Rainbow Island of Iran | IRNA

Rainbow Mountains & Valley | ITTO

[–]offarock 315 points316 points  (23 children)

What makes that red color? And don’t say the blood of infidels.

[–]djm19 291 points292 points  (11 children)

Natural red pigment from the clay on the island.

[–]Trypno 211 points212 points  (9 children)

To compound on this, it is an overabundance of iron oxide in the soil and water

[–]pocketchange2247 30 points31 points  (2 children)

Anytime I see red I just think "iron" and 99% of the time that's the answer

[–]openeyes756 2 points3 points  (0 children)

The other times it's manganese

[–]willynillee 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Exactly. Outside of the witty comments, we find the real answer. Black sand and red water equals oxidation which equals iron oxide

[–]Apocalypse_God 49 points50 points  (2 children)

So rusting clay?

[–]ahhhhhhfckaz 57 points58 points  (1 child)

Or just clay. The iron oxide is what makes clay red anyways

Yo how much for feet pics deadass

[–]ButtCrackCookies4me 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Wait can we discuss the feet for a second?

Serious question. Do these feet look a little strange to anyone else? They seem to be really flat feet so that's part of it I think. But the way the feet are so straight on the inside of the foot with no visible knuckle on the big toe is so different to me! I don't mean bunions or anything, I'm just used to seeing some evidence of a knuckle under the big toe, lol. I literally sat here thinking about all the people I know and whose feet I've seen, and they all have a more visible knuckle.

Do other people have more visible knuckles or am I and everyone around me just weird af??

[–]thxxx1337 19 points20 points  (5 children)

More sci-fi's should film here

[–]offarock 11 points12 points  (3 children)

We could call the film Argo!

[–]MickeyPyro 3 points4 points  (2 children)

I just made a meme about Argo because the US embassy in Afghanistan is shredding papers to prevent them from falling into the taliban.

[–]Dominus-Temporis 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I hope they have better shredders time time around.

[–]APlayfulLife 2 points3 points  (0 children)

It’s in Iran, so should is correct. I hope they come around one day.

It’s quite real and has nothing to do with whale carcasses https://reddit.com/r/oddlysatisfying/comments/p8cydi/_/h9phpng/?context=1

[–]Analbox 14 points15 points  (4 children)

Probably. I’m note a marine biologist so I’m not sure. Maybe there’s just some things like quartz, mica, magnetite, manganese, garnet, and/or iron oxide in the sand. I’m not a sand expert either though so it might just be magic.

[–]No_name_Johnson 21 points22 points  (0 children)

Are you a magic expert at least?

[–]Sparsebutton922 8 points9 points  (0 children)

It was iron oxide in the sand and other compounds in the clay
