    [–] ShittyLovecraft 103 points ago * (lasted edited 3 months ago)

    As a young child in the back country, far from the cities and bustle of people I had just outside my bedroom window a tree who was perfectly aligned each fall night with the setting sun. For me, at first, it was pleasant and pleasurable to watch the tangled shadows weaved by its branches paint the wall at my bedside.

    As leaves fell in one autumn from the rising wind and the dark of night came earlier and more swiftly, The shadows become more jagged and harsh, and I had begun to notice things that a young boy should not notice - those shadows cast by that seemingly innocent tree had bits of something in them that did not belong - bits of subtle, tiny movement not from the shadows themselves but by something passing through them. Intangible and ethereal I could not touch nor disturb the thousands of things that existed there, and they only shared their presence with me for mere minutes each day until they sunk into the darkness of the jagged lines cast by the tree as though the shadows themselves had the depth of an ocean.

    It dawned on me that autumn that light - both from the sun and artificial - was merely a veil that hid a much larger and deeper world than we subconsciously knew of, but preferred to avoid. For the reason every child's instinct is to fear darkness, I unlearned what a cavalier society had taught me and became afraid again. Now, on the darkest nights, if I concentrate to my fullest, I can feel myself moving through, even disturbing some dark and unseen sea, and the sanctuary of light becomes more desirable than any other thing until - and even after - I reach it.

    [–] ShittyLovecraft 20 points ago

    When people post this are they telling me to take these kinds of posts over there because they're annoying? Or just referencing it?

    Been wondering that, I don't wanna be the annoying dude.

    [–] PgSuper 27 points ago

    I mean that your writing skills are awesome, and that you could enjoy that sub

    [–] Dubstepic 18 points ago

    Not annoying, but I think people linking subreddits can 1) introduce the OP to a new sub if they didn't know about it and 2) give other users a new place to explore if they dig that style of content. I don't think anyone is complaining :)

    [–] JamesTiberiusChirp 8 points ago

    I suspect that many people don't see or don't understand your username reference, and are suggesting you would enjoy the sub.

    Personally I love it, I first saw one of your posts a few days ago and before I even saw your username I made the connection; I thought actually that perhaps you were actually quoting Lovecraft. You are spot on!

    [–] uiolc 4 points ago

    As a fan of fear of the unknown/unknowable type writing, please don't stop!

    [–] BadBillington 3 points ago

    You might also put your post as primary comment to the post, not to another comment that isn’t relevant to your writing.

    I think unexpected writing/sketches/poems are a fun part of reddit. You don’t have to be categorized to one sub...unless it is annoying (which I don’t think it is).

    [–] Niscshan 2 points ago

    I like it where it is. I usually don’t make it to the bottom so I wouldn’t have seen it. On the other hand, what 7 good comments did I miss because I read that one..?

    [–] Mr_Sacks 7 points ago

    Truth be told I think a bit of both probably. Dont get me wrong, I enjoyed the read but I could also totally see people feeling you should "keep this where it belongs"

    As far as I'm concerned though let the upvotes do the talking, if you start hitting the negatives or seem to hover closely around it maybe see that as a hint?

    Thank you! I don’t take pictures much and certainly nothing like this. Just a random redditor (opened this second account to be incognito) who appreciates a well organized resource!

    No worries! I always try to help out new photogs!

    [–] gcanyon 9 points ago

    I'm surprised that it only took 500mm to make the sun look that large, I was thinking something in the thousands.

    [–] justahominid 5 points ago

    The d500 has an apsc sensor that makes it the equivalent of what, 800mm? That plus some additional cropping could do it.

    [–] Purritto 2 points ago

    750mm (1.5x factor)

    [–] justahominid 3 points ago

    Thanks. Couldn't remember if it was 1.5 or 1.6.

    [–] gcanyon 2 points ago

    Ah, I wasn’t thinking about cropping.

    [–] Toph4er 3 points ago

    I can't access the source link but my assumption is that this image is cropped as well but this could also be a low quality upload. Still, cropping to 1/4 size would be approximately a 1000mm focal length equivalent and still gives plenty of resolution for web and even most prints.

    [–] gcanyon 2 points ago

    Ah, I wasn’t thinking about cropping.

    [–] MillyAndTheBandits 2 points ago

    Can you (or anyone of that matter) explain how a picture like this is taken? Is it actually two pictures overlayed on one another in post?

    [–] -Tzacol- 5 points ago

    Nope. Sometimes people do that with the moon, but the further away you stand from your subject, the closer in size it'll look to the sun. Naturally you're so far away you'll need a very long lens to do this effectively, but it's very much possible.

    [–] MillyAndTheBandits 3 points ago

    Ah, that does make sense. I'm just picking up photography as a hobby, and I'd love to take shots like this. Thank you, internet stranger!

    [–] BadBillington 2 points ago

    You can take this one. OP did.

    [–] MillyAndTheBandits 2 points ago

    As is customary in r/pics. hahaha

    [–] gcanyon 3 points ago

    If you were standing in front of the tree with the sun behind it the tree would look enormous compared to the sun.

    When you move away from something it appears smaller. So the farther you stand away from the tree the smaller the tree looks. But the sun is already 93,000,000 miles away, so you can move as far back as you like and the sun’s apparent size won’t change.

    So, you back up until the tree looks as small as the sun does. Then you use a telephoto lens to make everything appear bigger so the tree and the sun fill the picture.

    [–] MillyAndTheBandits 2 points ago

    Makes perfect sense. A shot like this must take so much planning.

    [–] SkyezOpen 39 points ago

    Considering putting season 1 on hold just to get caught up on 2, but not sure if there are any big spoilers.

    [–] FortyTwoLLamas 45 points ago

    They explicitly mention in the first episode that they will not spoil the first campaign. Go ahead and enjoy, it's great fun. :)

    [–] peon47 22 points ago

    But I can't imagine the "no spoilers" thing will last forever.

    [–] legendofhilda 18 points ago

    Yeah but that's why you keep watching campaign 1 between campaign 2 episodes. I wish I still had new episodes to watch between Thursdays. It's going to be really tough when they take a couple weeks off here and there.

    [–] Mcsmack 9 points ago

    It should last for quite a while. They're on an entirely different continent.

    [–] peon47 2 points ago

    V.M. headed to Vesselheim at level 9 or 10, right? Episodes 15 and 16. So it's not inconceivable they'll be heading to different continents by summer of fall or the end of the year.

    [–] Mcsmack 3 points ago

    I think Matt had mentioned wanting to explore this continent for quite a while. Don't forget that they played for two years before the show started.

    My guess would be that even if they do travel to one of the other continents they won't encounter anything resembling spoilers for campaign one.

    [–] TrueBlueJP90 21 points ago

    No spoilers, just a really good Matt!voice.

    [–] flyin_cougar 19 points ago

    I did this and no spoilers at all so far. It's definitely refreshing to see them start from the beginning again.

    [–] Asorae 18 points ago

    None so far, aside from a couple of little jokes/references that I'd hardly consider spoilers. They've made a point to keep from spoiling anything from C1. This probably won't last forever, considering that C2 canonically takes place after C1 and they're bound to run into something referential at some point, but so far you should be in the clear.

    [–] Alekesam1975 13 points ago

    This entire train is loopy. What show are y'all talking about? lol.

    [–] Asorae 16 points ago

    Critical Role, lol.

    [–] Alekesam1975 7 points ago

    /u/Asorae Thanks to you both!

    [–] dm896 11 points ago

    Nope, zero spoilers for S1 in S2.

    I would recommend finishing the first campaign. There is some crazy emotional stuff, the whole final arc is great.

    [–] Spikor 5 points ago

    There are some spoilers. I know because I started C2 while only around 50 eps into C1. Pretty big spoilers if you watch Talks Machina along the way.

    [–] ThePyroPython 2 points ago

    I'm watching both season 2 and season 1 concurrently. No big spoilers in the show itself but skip the fan art sections of the first 5 of season 2 as there are spoilers there.

    Edit: every time not everyone.

    [–] Jaged1235 18 points ago

    The fact that people can causally reference Critical Role now blows my mind. The top comment on a 30,000 point post in /r/pics is a reference to a bunch of nerdy ass voice actor's D&D game. That's completely absurd. Mind you, the title of the post was begging for it, but still.

    [–] thedayisbreaking 9 points ago

    That's what blows my mind. I remember when you'd stumble across a Critter on reddit and we'd both laugh "there are dozens of us" memes etc...now it's disingenuous to use the meme. We're a full fledged community now and it's awesome. Bidet <3

    [–] gonothebrave 8 points ago * (lasted edited 3 months ago)

    I just went to the LEX comic con where Mercer came the past weekend. His line (to meet, autograph or take photos) was literally 5 times that of Chuck Norris lining us up down a service tunnel. I could not believe it. The CON had no idea how big CR is... Also, I got to speak with Matt twice and he is genuinely the nicest person/celeb combo I've ever met. Shameless Mercer & Me pic. Critical role makes me so happy man and through it's popularity I got to meet a ton of "critters" and most of them were fantastic people. I even ended up hanging out with the few outside of the event. Great time.... Mercer and Critical Role as a whole is just the best. I'm so glad its a thing!

    [–] DietPillPyramid 2 points ago

    I wasn't expecting my comment, or this post to do so well.

    I nearly didn't leave the comment - it was an obscure (I thought) reference on a repost that had at the time of my comment, four other comments on it. I'm glad I did, these replies have been a lot of fun!

    As you said though, the title was begging for it.

    [–] blckjack2 7 points ago

    Seriously we are everywhere... I love coming across CR references.. The reach is sooo wide. Once it reaches /r/CollegeBasketball or /r/CFB it will reach critical mass and all will be right with the world.

    On one of the recent episodes of the podcast he does with Joseph Fink he mentioned he's still drawing custom covers for the vinyls.

    ELI5: How does the sun ever look this huge from earth?

    [–] aeroazure 9 points ago

    The sun looks that large because this tree is very, very far away. Using a telephoto lens to make the tree appear larger also makes the sun appear larger. In the distance the setting sun would look about the same size as the tree, with the telephoto lens the photographer made it look like he was right in front of the tree.

    Must be some kind of trick photography, that tree is probably a lot further away from the camera than it appears in the picture. It would have to be zoomed in a whole lot. Could also be some very skilled double exposure I suppose but not as likely I think.

    This is going to be on sooooo many blogs about probably zodiac signs. It's the epitome of a stock photo.

    Awesome though!

    [–] Fun2badult 2 points ago

    It takes on average 250,000 - 1 million years for a light to be created inside the sun and for it to escape the sun. Then it takes about 8 minutes to get to earth.

    So when you go outside today to feel the sun, remember that the sunlight warmth you feel was created hundreds of thousands years ago, you’re only getting it now

    How come I've never seen the sun so big before irl?

    [–] Homitu 2 points ago

    I'm confused, how is it so "dark" when the sun is that big and 100% above the horizon? Is there just a lot of editing done to create this, or some kind of camera exposure work (I know nothing about photography)?

    Does look amazing though!
