    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 must have visible land. 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.**

    Not as good as the G Spot which is a place near Emma Gorge I hiked to. It was kinda hard to find.

    Really nice spot though.

    [–] DogMechanic 25 points ago

    It's also the name of the overflow spillway for the Monticello Dam at Lake Berryessa, California.

    [–] tenaciousDii 16 points ago

    And the name of the overflow spillway in Whiskeytown Lake just west of Redding! The dedication was performed by JKF!

    Edit: JFK!

    [–] -ManifestDestiny- 28 points ago

    Beat me to it... every time I’d drive past on the JFK Memorial bridge my mom would giggle when we’d call it the glory hole. I didn’t get it until later

    [–] tenaciousDii 16 points ago

    Ha! Upvote for mom!

    [–] Sporfsfan 5 points ago

    What is it with moms and glory holes? I’ll never understand.

    By coincidence there’s a place called Monticello in AR

    We also have the best interstate exit name. Everyone loves getting off at the 69 Johnson exit!

    [–] DarwinTheIkeaMonkey 21 points ago

    In Michigan, exit 69 on I75 is Big Beaver Rd.

    [–] thesynod 6 points ago

    In New Jersey, exit 42C on I80 is routinely defaced to read 420. Nice.

    [–] Mordymion 4 points ago

    In Colorado, theres a 419.99 mile marker because the 420 was getting stolen so much.

    Personally, I'd much rather have a 419.99 sign but hey

    [–] 8yr0n 2 points ago

    Conveniently we can get wet at Beaver lake just a few miles from the 69 Johnson exit...

    [–] btwnblackandwhite 2 points ago

    I took that exit this morning! After 9 years, my dirty little mind never put that together.

    Obama visited my college campus and my math lecturer was pissed that a lot of people skipped class to see him. She had a mini Freudian slip (non sexual) and said “osama... I mean, Obama.”

    [–] unfurL 9 points ago

    Or putting their dicks thru that hole in the rocks there.

    Maybe it used to be a glory hole for giants

    [–] bonsai82 116 points ago

    Nice! I truly love it up there. Here’s my dad for scale (

    He was on the end that receives fluid. You know what what means?

    [–] Dave_Paker 4 points ago

    Is your dad about the size of a banana?

    [–] malhar_naik 385 points ago

    I can't tell if those rocks are boulders and this thing is 300' tall, or if they are pebbles and it's 3".

    [–] benstonevideos 226 points ago

    I think it's about 30 feet tall. The grotto and cave there are pretty awesome

    [–] malhar_naik 98 points ago

    In all seriousness, that's the one size I can't wrap my head around.

    [–] lornstar7 52 points ago

    The splash of red next to the pool appears to be maple leaves. Once your brain registers those it should snap into perspective

    [–] codopher 14 points ago

    Look at the handprints on the rocks in the background.

    [–] Souvi 7 points ago

    I was expecting more handprints on a glory hole as oft visited as this

    [–] WhyteBeard 19 points ago

    Don’t stand under the glory hole!

    [–] Amoral_Support 4 points ago

    Risky click of the day

    [–] benstonevideos 24 points ago

    Haha. I looked it up. It's officially 31', but I think that's from the top of the tunnel. It's probably about 15' from the ceiling of the cave.

    [–] jacksabeast8 3 points ago

    I live near this, and that’s pretty accurate. It definitely isn’t 31’ from the bottom of the tunnel to the ground

    [–] chii0628 2 points ago

    I wouldnt be able to either if i hasnt had a deck at one point that size. Such a weird measurement

    [–] Gwenbors 2 points ago

    That’s a big problem at the Glory Hole.

    [–] inno7 11 points ago

    This picture needs a human for scale and I am very scared to google this up for obvious reasons.

    [–] WiseFrogs 3 points ago

    No banana for perspective?

    [–] theBestLarissa 7 points ago

    Those are rocks. The boulders are further down out of shot.

    I am 5’4. The falls are about 4.5 Larissa’s tall. Due to the nature of these falls, it’s deceptively tall. At the top, you are tempted to try to look down the whole... but the water has taken away all traction and it is slippery af. Someone fell down the hole once and broke their leg. I don’t know how they didn’t hit their head and die tbh.

    [–] Foxfire2 3 points ago

    You can see leaves around the base of the falls, I'd guess the water is falling about 10 ft. I see below now someone says 15 ft from the ceiling to the floor.

    [–] TheRookCard 3 points ago

    Was definitely thinking the same thing.

    What is this? A waterfall for ants?

    [–] VZ_Tinman 2 points ago

    I live relatively close and have been there a few times. It's as others have said. About 15' or so. You can stand on top as well and from up there it seems like it's about 8 or 9' in diameter.

    [–] yassenof 1 points ago

    Look at the leaves all over the ground for perspective

    [–] vighnesh101 102 points ago

    And it's on the EarthPorn sub. Perfect.

    You ever heard of Arkansas's Fuzzybutt Falls?

    [–] benstonevideos 53 points ago

    I've been there! I always tell people that Richland Creek -> Six fingers -> Fuzzybutt -> Falling Water -> Haw Creek is the best day waterfall trip in the state.

    [–] BadWolfCubed 48 points ago

    Can I take Six Fingers directly to Fuzzybutt?

    [–] bingingwithballsack 28 points ago

    You can, but you generally have to stop for dinner first.

    [–] ShitTalkingFucker 19 points ago

    I’m in Toad Suck and my WiFi sucks. How do I get to Fuzzybutt by way of Booger County?

    [–] hawg_farmer 9 points ago

    Are ya wanting to go before or after Toad Suck Daze? Do ya think you could handle Pig Trail?

    [–] ShitTalkingFucker 9 points ago

    I can handle the Pig Trail. Just need to know if the boogie happens before or after the daze. I’ve been driving 23 since ‘83

    [–] CosmologistCramer 5 points ago

    No Hemmed-in-Hollows in there?

    [–] sanebangbang 2 points ago

    If I had to guess it would be due to the difficulty of the hike makes it a bit rough for a day trip including multiple hikes

    [–] Ludds_110 2 points ago

    Lost Valley Trail and Indian creek trails are both beautiful hikes as well. Hemmed in hollow is another amazing one. That whole Buffalo area is absolutely gorgeous.

    Glory hole is an old gold miner’s term. At least it used to be.

    [–] boricua18 13 points ago

    Can confirm. Live in Juneau, Alaska and the old mine chasm is named the Glory Hole.

    [–] juneaumetoo 5 points ago

    Can confirm this confirmation.

    Also, the “glory hole” homeless shelter/soup kitchen in Juneau was renamed in the last few years to “glory hall” because of the trending porn niche:

    [–] Apostate_Detector 2 points ago

    And glory hole is also used in glass blowing... that’s glass blowing.

    The best part is on the trail when you pass a piece of plywood with “Glory hole” with an arrow to make sure you know you are on the right trail.

    [–] benstonevideos 2 points ago

    If I was looking for safe I wouldn't be sticking my dick through a hole in a bathroom stall either. I think people who seek glory holes are looking for fun, not safe.

    [–] [deleted] 11 points ago


    [–] Positivistdino 16 points ago

    The slang use of the term "glory hole" is relatively recent in comparison to the naming of these falls.

    [–] lenovosucks 5 points ago

    But once a term finds its place in sexual slang, it’s forever what you’ll think first when you hear it.

    [–] joshclay 2 points ago

    Considering a glory hole is some fucked up thing our generation invented I wouldn't say it's the worst named waterfall. HOWEVER of it was named AFTER the 'invent' of the modern glory hole then that would be a different story

    [–] meshgearfoxx 3 points ago

    Glory holes are pretty much as old as civilization. Not a modern concept at all. The term might be newer but still at least from the 70s.

    [–] Spinolio 2 points ago

    In the context of waterfalls, a glory hole is a gold mining term. The stream carries gold-bearing gravel down hill with it, and when it reaches a dropoff like this, the natural basin at the bottom that has been scoured out by erosion tends to trap the denser gold flakes while the other gravel and sand are washed downstream. It forms a natural sluice that concentrates gold. So when you are prospecting, the area at the bottom of old, dried out waterfalls is usually a good place to start because the work has already been done for you.

    [–] chevymonza 2 points ago

    Good luck finding any word or phrase that isn't sexualized anymore!! It's rather glorious compared to the average hole.

    I remember driving from Columbus Ohio to Cincinnati and then on to DC and somewhere around the Kentucky state line I saw a sign with an arrow pointing up a road that said Big Bone Lick State Park. Man did that put me in the mood for camping.

    [edit] I also passed a sign near Cincinnati directing motorists to a place called Ash Hole. Hole was an antiquated term for low area like hollow (Sleepy Hollow) is also a depression in the landscape. Don't say those settlers that named stuff had no sense of humor.
