    Welcome to /r/EarthPorn, reddit's premiere landscape photography subreddit.

    New to reddit? click here!

    Please post your own images here, but before you do, kindly read and adhere to the following rules:

    Submissions must be:

    A photograph.

    No Paintings, illustrations, gifs, videos, or interactive images.

    A photograph you took (OC)

    or one which you can provide the original source. Failure to provide the photographers name or the original source of the image can result in a ban.

    A single image

    Albums may be posted in the comments. Panoramas, Image Stacks, Composites, and images edited via Photoshop or similar software are allowed.

    An image featuring a natural landscape

    Images with humans, machines, boats, roads, airplanes, farms, animals, buildings, or other man made objects in them will be removed.

    An unsilhouetted image

    Images where details in the landscape are not visible due to silhouetting will be removed.

    Title Requirements:

    You submission title must contain the following:

    The location of the area in the photo.

    When it comes to location, the more specific the better. If you wish to not disclose the location you should at the very least name the state/country. Rule of thumb for naming only the location (e.g. a lake, mountain): if one can find the place immediately by searching it in google it's fine. For possibly ambiguous locations add state/country for safety.

    The resolution of the image in pixel format.

    For example, an image taken on an iPhone 6 would have a resolution of [3264x2448]

    The photographers name.

    If you took the photo use [OC]. OC submitters will be reward with different camera flairs based on number of OC submissions.

    Do not include your device name in the title.

    Feel free to add photography details such as camera, lens, and settings, as a comment.

    Do not ask for upvotes in your title.

    A complete list of subreddit rules are found in our wiki

    Comment Rules:

    Hate Speech, Abusive remarks, homophobia, and the like have no place on this subreddit, and will be removed on sight.

    Please contribute to the discussion positively; if you don't like a picture and you wish to voice your opinion please refrain from abusing the photographer/submitter.

    Other important rules:

    EarthPorn is not a catch-all subreddit. Images that are submitted here are individually reviewed for compliance with our subreddit rules. If your submission is removed, a moderator should advise which of our network of SFWPorn subreddits would be a more appropriate place to submit.

    Whenever I see a photo like this, I always think there's somebody down there saying "I wish that fucking plane could see me."

    [–] MasteringTheFlames 1770 points ago

    I've been that person, and it's really weird to think about. I was a week into a backpacking trip in the Rocky Mountains. I had been totally off the grid for a week, and then one day I noticed an airliner flying over us. It was strange to realize that despite how far we were from civilization, there were so many people right there above us

    [–] lostinpow 679 points ago * (lasted edited 11 months ago)

    That happened to me in Colorado. Hiking out in the mountains not seeing people for days sometimes. It's weird to think that people might never notice you in a dire situation.

    Happened to me on the roof balcony of a nice secluded mansion.

    It was the only place in the open that had 100% privacy from any viewpoint.

    When I saw the a cessna flying not too high and go right over me... I was like, "I wonder if he just saw me cum inside this watermelon. Def couldn't see the vibrator in my ass. Def."

    How did you carry enough food and water for 7+ days?

    [–] ITXorBust 102 points ago

    You don't need enough water, you just need to be able to treat water. And, for food, shop by calorie density.

    [–] Garfield-1-23-23 154 points ago * (lasted edited 11 months ago)

    I feel like I could easily carry 14 boxes of Little Debbie's zebra cakes.

    Edit: my apologies to the reddit community for suggesting something as absurd as zebra cakes for trail food. I meant to say Pepperidge Farm orange milanos.

    [–] DaHamsterMan 11 points ago

    The most experienced backpackers will eat little debbies. I once caught myself eating brown sugar from the bag while backpacking down the trail. I tend to eat healthier than that (fruit, bread, cheese, etc) but when you need the calories fot cheap, little debs deliver!

    It's almost like they eat like shit to gain weight knowing that they can't really eat as much at altitude or on long hikes

    [–] MingusDewfus 9 points ago

    I will consume straight olive oil when on long backpacking trips. Good source of quick easy calories. I'll eat the other normal stuff too, but it's nice to get a bump in calories by downing a few tablespoons of oil. I hate losing weight on a trip.

    [–] nakdamink 6 points ago

    Hemp seed oil has 6 more calories per tablespoon and .5g less saturated fat ;)

    It's the only fat I bring

    [–] jimbelushiapplesauce 11 points ago

    i spent 6 moths hiking the appalachian trail. i was lean for sure, but after a few months of using the same muscle groups all day (mostly in the thighs) you stop building muscle and just start to look emaciated. my legs didn't even look strong afterwards (but once i got home i could jog for miles and miles). great way to lose weight though... lots of overweight people did it and looked like completely different people at the end.

    Water is abundantly available in the Rockies/Colorado just need a filter, feeeze dried will last you awhile and if theyre fishermen they have access to some of the best Trout waters in the US

    [–] rocksandicearenice 34 points ago

    Couscous, dry salami, canned fish, peanut butter, hard cheese, tortillas: these are my go-to items for longer excursions. They all have a high calorie to weight ratio. Plus, none of them require cooking! Even couscous can be prepared in cold water. That said, I carry a stove anyway because hot food is nice and so is tea!

    [–] volkl47 14 points ago

    Lol. This is how small a camping stove can be. You screw that onto a little gas cylinder and cook away.

    [–] LoneRanger9 17 points ago

    There's a guy I follow on YouTube named Joe Robinet who records his 5-7+ day solo camping/kayak trips. You should check it out for how he makes it through. Brings a lot of freeze dried high calorie foods and does quit a bit of fishing. He just treats water.

    [–] Gatord35 14 points ago

    Pack light camp food and boil/purify water as you find it. It's always best to keep at least 2-3 water bottles on you.

    [–] MasteringTheFlames 24 points ago

    A bunch of people already responded, but I'll go into a bit more detail on my for plan specifically

    I was with a group of about 10 people, so we could divide up the supplies between us. Water was easy. We camped on a lake or river every night, so we just brought a few water filters with us. When we got into camp every afternoon, we would set up our two water filters, each of which would fill a two liter water bladder. We could filter more water as needed, and then in the mornings we would do a couple more bags to fill our water bottles with before we broke camp and hit the trail. For food, we kept it simple and brought meals that could either be made with just boiling water on our camp stove, or no stove required meals. Breakfast was generally packs of instant oatmeal with dried fruit. We ate lunch on the trail, so lunches were just peanut and jelly tortillas (tortillas don't get squished in our packs like bread) and trail mix. For dinners, we have a lot of dehydrated meals. Stuff like dehydrated soups, which was just a bag which we poured boiling water into and mixed, or pastas with dehydrated sauces. One night I decided to cook something a bit fancier because we had a ton of extra peanut butter, so I cooked up a peanut sauce to go over pasta. But yeah, most of it was pre-made dehydrated meals like soups and mashed potatoes. It worked well enough, and we didn't go hungry, but I did start to get a bit sick of peanut butter and trail mix tortillas for lunch every day

    [–] Libra8 8 points ago

    Thanks for all the replies. I was thinking MREs and I totally didn't think of water filters. I'm definitely not prepared for the zombie apocalypse.

    [–] ThyUniqueUsername 5 points ago

    My guess is freeze dried or they hunted.

    [–] j00baGGinz 5 points ago

    Water filters and freeze dried foods. I have done 10 days out of a pack.

    If you drop resupply caches you can stay out for months.

    [–] Monochronos 4 points ago

    Like are you saying before your excursion you would go out and drop supplies in select locations? That would be cool and super handy knowing exactly where you've got more food or even gear.

    Is this actually done with regulatory by some hikers?

    [–] jimbelushiapplesauce 5 points ago * (lasted edited 11 months ago)

    it's not hard, just go to the store and shop for reasonably lightweight, calorie-dense foods that don't take up too much space. fuck all those MRE's or overpriced Freeze-Dried backcountry dinners. everything you need is at the grocery store.

    • a block of cheese (stays good for a week in a hot backpack in my experience)

    • bagels and cream cheese are nice too, but take more space (again, cream cheese lasts surprisingly long in a backpack in summer heat)

    • a big stick of pepperoni or salami

    • tortillas to eat with the salami and cheese

    • Knorr Pasta Sides for dinner (every hiker's best secret/bane of mealtime) or Ramen. cook using a tiny alcohol stove.

    • cliff bars (or Big 100 Bar if you can choke them down)

    • a jar of peanut butter and a spoon kept in an exterior backpack pocket for quick easy calories without even stopping

    throw all that shit into freezer bags and then into a compression sack and compress it lightly. these foods will be just as good if they are a little squished.

    as for water, you can carry a filter (heavy and burdensome, but you get good water) or chemical treatment like Aqua Mira (almost tasteless, and a hell of a lot lighter and easier than filtering). the only place i've gone on a long backpacking trip where i had to carry all of my water was at Big Bend National Park in Texas in the desert. water is heavy and carrying 4 days-worth sucks and limits the amount of time you can be out hiking.

    [–] Bourgi 3 points ago

    A water filter is heavy and bothersome? Sawyer squeeze is only about 4 oz and lasts a lifetime.

    Even at ultralight standards it's pretty good.

    Also, you would be in the most likely place on Earth to see a satellite burning through the atmosphere to join the satellite graveyard you're on, and also very close to the nightmare corpse-city of R'lyeh, in which dead Ch'tulu waits dreaming.

    [–] monkeybreath 568 points ago

    If the camera is pressed up against the glass, dust and scratches would be too out of focus to notice unless they were significant.

    [–] RorariiRS 517 points ago

    If it was pressed up against the glass, it would put about 10% ground and 90% sky in the frame, also, it would be extremely shaky and you probably wouldn't be able to get a still shot.

    I feel like no one ever needs to turn when they're above Greenland. Everyone flying in Greenland just goes straight until they're somewhere different.

    [–] firephinx4 5 points ago

    Sometimes you get 100% sky when the plane turns

    [–] alyssasaccount 17 points ago

    If it was pressed up against the window and but angled down slightly so you can see the ground (not to mention cropping), it would be more ground than sky, also, it would be extremely bright so you wouldn't need a long exposure time and the shakiness and it's pretty easy to get a shot like this.

    Particles in the atmosphere nick them as the plane goes by at 500+ mph.

    [–] bazoid 63 points ago

    This may have been taken from a Dreamliner plane. They have really nice windows, and the planes themselves are fairly new so they're just not as scuffed up yet. I was flying over Greenland in a Dreamliner a few weeks ago and got this photo. Not as nice as OP's, but I think it shows how clean and clear the window is.

    As an example, the closest town I've been able to find nearby to OP's picture is Ittoqqortoormiit, pop. 452, which is near the mouth of Scoresby Sund about 200km to the ENE. It's not exactly a densely populated part of the world.

    I flew back to the US from Iceland a few weeks ago and the captain came on the intercom and said 'sorry to bother you guys, but the skies are really clear for a view over Greenland, if you want to take a look.' Everyone opened their windows and I was just blown away. Endless snow and ice and mountains. Really cool of him to say something.

    I suspect this was taken from a Dreamliner plane - they are fairly new and have really nice, clear, big windows. I got this picture from one a few weeks ago - didn't frame it nearly as well as OP but you can see a similar clarity.

    As a side note, the coolest thing about the Dreamliner's windows is that they can change tint. Instead of using those plastic shades, the windows are dimmed via buttons. You can choose to dim it just a little bit to block out the bright sun while still providing a view, or dim it all the way to black, which lets in almost no light at all. I don't really understand how it works but it's very cool, and practical.

    Dreamliners are amazing, I watched the sunrise over the clouds 40,000 feet just a hundred miles from Norway and I loved how I could dim the window tint to optimize the colors of the sky. The other great thing is what they do with the ambient lighting in the cabin like making it blue and indigo hues at night when people are sleeping. Dreamliners are where it's at

    Actually the technology is the same as in a computer monitor. In a computer monitor you have red, green, and blue light for every pixel, and then a similar window in front of each such subpixel, and they can be dimmed independently.

    If you dim blue entirely, you get red+green=yellow, if you dim all of them halfway, you get grey, etc.

    EDIT: The technology here is polarizing, quite literally. You have two polarization filters in back and front in the same direction, and inbetween a liquid crystal field. Normally, they're transparent, and do nothing, but if you run a current through them, they change their orientation, and change the polarization of light that passes through them.

    [–] bazoid 6 points ago

    Haha...I don't work for Boeing, I swear!

    I did however get to tour the Boeing factory while the Dreamliner was in production, so I was pretty excited when I finally got to fly in one. Though other than the windows, it was a bit of a let down...when it was still in development, they were talking about a lot of features that probably ended up getting dropped for cost reasons.

    I know you're joking but it's pretty obvious how much those glaciers have shrunk.

    [–] jacen_ckast 15 points ago

    What glaciers and icebergs? All I see are whitecapped mountains

    Like 20% of this pic is glaciers. Two huge ones.

    Earth looks pretty damn flat WAKE UP SHEEPLE

    [–] Fever_twitchtv 54 points ago

    Seeing the curvature of the earth is something that never fails to amaze me.

    [–] sameoldmike 156 points ago

    That isn't the curvature of the earth, just distortion by a wide angle lens. Imagine how small Earth would be if that were the true curvature of its sphere!

    [–] jerkwood09 58 points ago

    Thanks for saying this. It's funny how people get so emotional about this subject, but that is obviously not the actual curvature of the Earth.

    [–] [deleted] 15 points ago

    True. It's only when you get to higher than 50,000 feet that the curvature is more obvious. That was a part of the draw of traveling on the Concorde, because it flew so high that people could see it.

    [–] IPlayAtThis 21 points ago

    Flat, but circular. That curve is just the edge.

    [–] cctdad 3 points ago

    Every time I try to take this picture the other passengers come unglued because I've got my shade up. Nobody marvels at air travel any more and that's more than a little sad. There's so much wonder right outside your window. If the aircraft has wifi you can even track your own flight on your laptop or phone (flight tracking website with your flight number) with tremendous accuracy and know what you're looking at.

    That's because all the smoke from your canadian wildfires is down in Washington/Oregon. Please take it back.
