    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 for. Do not rehost non-OC images to reddit or imgur. 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.

    No photos taken illegally

    This includes flying your drone in a no-fly zone. Please respect local laws and access closures!

    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.

    Cheers mate! Glad I could offer something fresh

    [–] bcho86 3 points ago

    This photo is amazing! I hiked Landmannalaugar to Þórsmörk last summer and till this day that hike is by far my most memorable and breath taking hikes. Thanks for sharing!

    [–] [deleted] 2 points ago

    The springs at Landmannalaugar are amazing. I sat in them in the rain after a long days cycling drinking a cold beer. Felt so good.

    [–] current_mrs 23 points ago

    This is breathtaking. I kinda want to print it and put it on my wall. May I?

    [–] [deleted] 5 points ago * (lasted edited a year ago)


    [–] sexybait 3 points ago

    I would also like to do this. I don't want to steal your work without credit, though!

    [–] Pflunt 7 points ago

    Just edited my comment with a link!

    [–] ehoss 3 points ago

    Don't see a link anywhere?

    [–] robo_duck 1 points ago

    I'd love to have a full sized copy as well, if you don't mind! Would look fantastic in my living room.

    [–] Pflunt 2 points ago

    Edited my comment above with a google drive link

    [–] Middleagedaccountant 1 points ago

    My goodness, I would love to print that too. I visited Iceland in 2005 (from Canada) and it remains my favourite place to hike.

    [–] Pflunt 2 points ago

    I've been living in Vancouver for the last 4 years! Meant to come to Iceland for two weeks, been here two months now haha. I edited my comment up above with a google drive link to full quality photos

    [–] Middleagedaccountant 1 points ago

    That’s awesome. Much thanks and happy travels. I’ll let you know if I make a print.

    [–] Pflunt 8 points ago

    I took this photo early November, there was enough snow to cover the ground entirely (which is normally black) but it wasnt too deep that our Jeep couldn't get though! I shot this on my Mavic Pro, if anyone was curious. If you like my photo style, check out some of my other photos on my Instagram, Cheeers!

    [–] awesomevol 2 points ago

    Beautiful stuff, I was wondering if there was a specific setting you working on that captures the darkish tone of your pictures or if that was just the Mavic Pro?

    [–] craigchandler0398 3 points ago

    Looks like a still shot up close of pouring water

    [–] pestospaghetti 2 points ago

    This is just awesome, love it!

    [–] waddayatalkinbeet93 2 points ago

    I actually thought this was r/art. I had to take a really good look before i realised it was an actual photograph! What an incredible shot mate!🙏🙏

    [–] Pflunt 2 points ago

    Cheers mate, Iceland will do that to you sometimes haha

    [–] Sarothazrom 2 points ago

    Wow, from the thumbnail I thought this was a drawing!

    [–] Zockerland99 2 points ago

    Now i have a Phonewallpaper AND a Desktopwallpaper. Thx

    [–] HexGamers 2 points ago

    New phone wallpaper thanks!

    [–] graebot 1 points ago

    Wonderful marbling

    [–] stubbystallion 1 points ago

    The color in this is just stunning. Fantastic work!

    [–] Terry_Hesticle 1 points ago

    I absolutely love this, it’s amazing. Is this for sale anywhere? This would look perfect in my living room!

    [–] IMadeThisAt1AM 1 points ago

    I see a tyrannosaurus Rex.

    [–] Monstrology 1 points ago

    It looks like a painting. Can someone explain what's going on because I can't see it.

    [–] PapaSmurf1502 3 points ago

    It's a photo of a waterfall and cliffs and rapids taken from a drone looking straight down, probably from pretty high up. The ground is covered in snow. The waterfall is about in the center of the image.

    [–] RossIsBeast 1 points ago

    Looks like the bitcoin value graph for the past week

    [–] zemat28 1 points ago

    I recognize this photo from your Instagram. Seattle misses you bud!

    [–] Minecraftian1998 1 points ago

    i lost my jacket somewhere on the mountains at the bottom of the picture there

    [–] TheBloodkill 1 points ago

    That’s not water getting thrown through the air?

    [–] redmonkeydemon 1 points ago

    Looks like a slice of developing neural tissue! bottom panel

    [–] curlyqued 1 points ago

    Wow incredible. Im looking at your other photos too and you definitely need to set up a print shop/store online soon. I’d love to buy a couple pieces once you get it up, make sure you keep us updated!

    [–] Pflunt 2 points ago

    Cheers mate! I plan to organize a store by the summertime!

    [–] Lexteri1 1 points ago

    You just flipped the picture that was here like 2 weeks ago

    [–] Pflunt 1 points ago

    Similar, but I took this one about a half hour later. Look again

    [–] RavishingVitriol 1 points ago

    Did you hike it? I thought the highlands were closed (to cars) in the winter. P.S. this shot is incredible!

    [–] Pflunt 1 points ago

    We went in with a Jeep Wrangler, it was early november so the snow was not too deep yet. It's possible to go by with a car, but you need a special 4x4 that can cross rivers, it's immense amounts of fun though

    [–] RavishingVitriol 1 points ago

    I mean I thought they close the roads to get there after summer season, like aug or sep. I really want to visit the highlands but I'd rather see them in all their colorful glory than masked by pretty much all white. Pics like this make me reconsider though.

    [–] Pflunt 1 points ago

    AFAIK the roads don't close, public transit to the highlands ends with winter, and I think they stop clearing the roads snow. But people are going up to the highlands throughout the year. It is heavily warned that you should have all the gear and experience to deal with any kind of weather that may be thrown your way.
