These Wildly Beautiful Photos Will Have You Thinking It's Photoshop.
A City Fit For A King's Throne
Part of the hit HBO series "A Game Of Thrones" was filmed in the city Dubrovnik, Croatia, where this village staircase can be found. Croatia was used as King's Landing in the TV series. You can actually see a very small sign for the show hidden among the numerous windows, cobblestones, and wall lamps. This image proves that beauty can be found in even the most intricate city structures, but it can also be found in the mundane life of rural farmers.
Waves Of Red And Orange
A woman, deep in the countryside of Turkey, can be seen carrying baskets of grapes across the brightly colored tarps of the vineyard. The red and orange tarps look like massive waves of protection for the vines. The tarps are used to protect the vineyards from being destroyed by frost. And even though they look connected, the woman's path shows the space between them. Photographers, given time and patience, have the ability to shake up their viewers with breathtaking amounts of color. This next photo shows the exact moment a match is lit.
It's Nice To Be Able To Freeze Time

Sometimes the perfect picture opportunity is sitting in your very own hand. This rare image captures the moment when a match's sulfur tip turns into a brilliant flame. The smallest amount of time can be immortalized with a high shutter speed. The image is both breathtaking and unnatural at the same time. Incredible images are certainly found when freezing time in high speed framed, but beauty is also found in dramatic pauses. This next one could pass for CGI, but you have to believe us, it's not!
It's A Bird, It's A...What Is That?

The Northern Lights, also known as the Aurora Borealis, can be found throughout the Arctic. The natural phenomenon is caused by the fact that the area has such a high latitude, that solar winds are blasting the area and interacting with the polar magnetism. When this happens, chemicals in the atmosphere become electrically charged, and this is what makes the bright colors. The bright green and yellow colors make it look as if there's a massive bird flying through the sky. At times, beauty is hidden deep beneath the surface.
It's An Underwater Alien Invasion

Underwater imagery tends to look a bit alien. This is a rare image of a world known to very few people. Maybe it's the work of an impressionist and those are birds in a golden forest. You may be surprised to find out that those are actually tadpoles in a pool. The camera gives us a lesson in science by showing us that water isn't actually blue. It just reflects the colors surrounding it. Since we're talking about water, check out the calmness of the tropical ocean.
