Yeah, first thing I thought of when reading that comment was Kandersteg, which looks like it might not be too far away from your picture.
Yeah, not far, it's Lauterbrunnen.  (I had to look up Kandersteg).
Next time you're in the area considering taking a day trip to Kandersteg. The hike up to the lake is very nice. I was pretty underwhelmed with Interlaken, but Lauterbrunnen looks pretty kick ass. Now that I think about it I almost certainly passed through there doing that whole Jungfraujoch thing.

Awesome picture but it makes me so uncomfortable.

There were times when Rik and I were writing together when we almost died laughing. They were some of the most carefree stupid days I ever had, and I feel privileged to have shared them with him. And now he's died for real. Without me. Selfish bastard.

Makes me a little uncomfortable as well.

I see bodies piled on top of each other descending into hell.

From the rorschach perspective, I guess that says something about my own psychology.

Yea I can see that too, for me it's just the thought of taking a misstep and sliding into the deep abyss of molten lava.  :eek

I think it's pretty hard not to see shapes of bodies at least in an initial glance of the image, which I definitely saw clearly right off the bat. Looks pretty awesome.

Also I feel like those bird time lapse picture are straight out of True Detective's Rust's hallucinations.  :heart

The texture in the lava is weirdly organic-looking, and our brains are hardwired for pattern recognition, especially of faces, other persons, bodies, etc.  I don't know enough about psychology to even guess a number, but I'm sure a fair percentage of people see "flowing bodies" or something like that in the lava.

Here's a pic that at first glance seems so so, but gets cooler the more you think about it



My current and last school rotation is at Pennsylvania hospital and I tend to wander around and explore. And I found this, which is the very first operating room in the united states from some point in the late 1700's. No antibiotics, not anesthesia, no sterilized instruments, just a wooden table and a whole lot of hope.

Just brilliantly done.

Usually when I post a picture that's too big, the forum software automatically adds height and width tags to the link. So I don't know.

This one came up on my FB feed, guess it was taken a few days ago just outside the Golden Gate by San Francisco bay. No other description is really necessary....

That's really cool and I actually just a couple weeks ago caught my first ever glimpse of whales out in the wild off the shores near San Fran.  So awesome.

We did some whale watching in Boston. I ate about ten sandwiches on the boat because I am deathly afraid of boats and water. The whales were nice though. I wish I still had the photos from the occasion.

I've lived here most of my 47 years of life, and have yet to see one. :(

On our last day and before we went to catch our flight, we stopped at the Pacifica Municipal Pier.  We chilled for a moment and then as we were almost off the pier, we saw two ladies with their two little girls running back down the pier shouting whales.  So we ran back behind them and yup, there were whales and dolphins with some birds circling above.  Must have been food in the area.  Got  a short video clip that you can see here (my instagram is public):

We have a chocolatier down here with a similar flair for style. I always appreciate that sort of artistry. I got a gift pack from her shop as a Christmas gift, and as wonderful as they look, it's their construction that really shines. Every flavor and texture were perfectly balanced. There might be 5 different things going on in one of them and each one is perfectly in its place.
