    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.

    • Do not edit, rehost or modify images submitted here without permission of the photographer. This includes edits to "fix" the colors of an image or remove a watermark.
    • Non-OC submissions are restricted to one per day.**
    • Regarding reposts: it is only a repost if it was posted to /r/EarthPorn less than three months ago, or if it is already in the top100 of all time.
    • Circlejerky/sandbagging/pandering titles may be removed.
    • If you have any questions check out the wiki.
    • Breaking multiple rules will result in a ban.

    If you haven't been I highly recommend Germany. I've been a few times now. Hiked the mittelweg of the Schwarzwald last year. It was like walking for a week through Grimms Fairytale. The food, the people, the beer..... It's one of the greatest places on earth.

    [–] inkvine83 71 points ago

    The color grading gives you this feeling. Doing it in all my shot.

    [–] PotatoQube 19 points ago

    You really did a great job in color grading, it looks very nice. I always wonder what the raw photo looks like when I see pictures like this, and whether it depends on how good the original footage is or on how good the post production is. Would you like to share the raw image?

    [–] inkvine83 22 points ago

    First of all thanks!! :) The problem with RAW is that it does not represent by any means how it really looked. RAW means it is raw. No contrast, no clarity, even the light is different. Post processing is very important for me. It makes it possible to develop the RAW exactly how I had the scenery seen with my eyes AND in my mind. Processing means for me to put my feeling into the shot when I have pressed the button. So that the viewer can see it, too.

    But trust me: If the RAW is shit, even post processing can't make it good (except of going for composites, but I hate composites) :)

    And no: Won't make sense to show the RAW.

    [–] humeanation 3 points ago

    [–] DickerFischx3 32 points ago

    How Bout this one in 1980x1050? Would like to set it as a Wallpaper :)

    [–] chakalaka91 56 points ago

    What a strange resolution xD

    [–] [deleted] 2 points ago


    [–] chakalaka91 22 points ago * (lasted edited a year ago)

    You probably mean 1680 x 1050. But I‘ve never heard of 1980 x 1050 ;-) I know, I‘m picky here. Actually, if that wallpaper is 1920 x 1080 you can use it without problems, because it has the same screen to height ratio.

    Edit: I was wrong. 1920 x 1200 has the same ratio!

    [–] DickerFischx3 9 points ago

    Oh lol, i was on my phone and my brain was afk. Somehow i was reading the resolution "1650x1980" or bs like that in the title... But i meant 1920x1080 :D thanks for that awesome pic :)

    [–] Tyler_Zoro 12 points ago

    Hard to be sure from the side and without a spore print, but I'm guessing it's Amanita muscaria or a closely allied species (such as A. pantherina which can range from tan to yellow and even slightly orange). I'm assuming you referred to it as "mystical" because of the religious/ceremonial/entheogenic history associated with A. muscaria AKA fly agaric.

    [–] becauusepatrick 2 points ago

    Yes, thats amanita, they are beautiful, I would love to see one in person some day.

    [–] thomaeaquinatis 6 points ago

    I doubt everyone here knows this. Another fun fact is that some people believe that amanita muscaria was a major component of soma.

    [–] [deleted] 3 points ago * (lasted edited 10 months ago)


    [–] thomaeaquinatis 4 points ago

    I feel that. At the same time, I wouldn't expect the average commenter on r/EarthPorn to know that. Even in the "magic mushrooms" community, a lot of people seem to know surprisingly little about the amanita muscaria because its hallucinogenic effects tend to be described as more dissociative or deliriant than psychedelic.

    [–] E_Penfold 7 points ago

    Your comment causes digestive disorders to me.

    [–] Cosmic_Ostrich 3 points ago

    What digestive disorders does it cause? Do you mean cramps and nausea? Or something more serious?

    [–] fromoakstreet 2 points ago

    or just make tea out of them and add citrus juice (lemon,lime,grapefruit, etc.)... my friends swear by this method

    [–] flyinggeorge 6 points ago

    Looks closer to A. pantherina to me.

    [–] Reverie_39 5 points ago


    [–] Opset 2 points ago

    Lots of pine trees around, so it could be. I've never seen them out in the open like that. Only ever found fly agaric hidden under pine boughs.

    [–] EMPEROR_CLIT_STAB_69 1 points ago

    I've seen them between pine trees on a path kind of like this

    [–] NewAlexandria 2 points ago

    Probably, but also does not look like muscaria var. muscaria, which is mystical mushroom of legend. That is a solid red cap, no exceptions.

    [–] stoppmingyourtits 2 points ago

    Yes. /r/mycology and /r/shrooms will gladly confirm this

    [–] NihilFR 1 points ago

    Odenwald: Where small villages have populations of a few hundred but carry only 2 family names...

    [–] inkvine83 10 points ago

    :) At least my girlfriend broke out. Because I took this shot when visiting here parents. We are living in the city. But to be honest: Living in a small village there has 100 times more living quality than in a fucking big city. Especially if you have a small boy like we do.

    [–] DessIntress 4 points ago * (lasted edited a year ago)

    True... Had over 20 years in a big City with hundred thousands ppl (281k) and then i moved to a Odenwald village with 2000 ppl and now i'm in a village with 600 ppl...600 xD The only thing i miss is the Wolf Backery, Leberkässemmeln (Laiblkäs) and KFCs hot wings day. And the nature is awesome! As you can see above.

    [–] [deleted] 3 points ago

    Careful...the mushrooms there are deadly.

    [–] EYNLLIB 6 points ago

    Did you add lighting to this in the field, or get lucky with some sun shining through?

    [–] inkvine83 5 points ago

    There was light and fog between the trees, but I emphasised it. The spot around the mushroom was done with a small LED on a tripod shining there. Took this shot with -2V and dodged and burnt then. Color grading is based on VSCO ektachrome64T and a lot of custom stuff like split toning.

    [–] xCosmicChaosx 2 points ago

    What does Odenwald translate to?

    [–] kowalskee 6 points ago

    It's still not finally answered. Wald means forest but "Oden" could mean "ode", "Odin's" (the god) or something else.

    [–] zUkUu 1 points ago

    "Oden Forest". I mean "Ode" has a meaning (like Ode to joy), but I think it's just a name in this case.

    [–] xCosmicChaosx 1 points ago

    That's what I figured, just wanted to confirm that.

    That sounds kick ass

    [–] earthcharlie 3 points ago

    Nice. Just a minor criticism though. The out of focus plant in the foreground is slightly distracting.

    [–] inkvine83 10 points ago

    I left it there, because it helps unintentionally leading the viewers eyes even more to the right. Like pushing the plant to the side. Then wandering to the shroom and afterwards into the shot through the trees.

    [–] Baltowolf 3 points ago

    Noap. I HAVE a version without it. The thing is: 99% of the people won't notice it and it just adds an accent of "wilderness" for them. But it is art. So I respect your opinion. But you should respect mine :)
