There are some pretty beautiful things in this world...and we've taken pictures of many of them. Post some of your favorites here!
This is a shot of Thurso Castle in Scotland, with a camera capturing the moon rays behind it using a very long exposure time.

Wow that's beautiful no kidding
May 21 2009 5:44 PM EDT
of course give credit if you have it...photo taken by Stewart Watt.

Wow, this is a really nice one indeed.
Long shutter time (I'm thinking ~10-15 seconds at least) on a good stable support.
What's the light coming from the horizon though?

"camera capturing the moon rays behind it using a very long exposure time"
Also, wouldn't the shutter time have to be longer than 10-15 seconds? You can see the stars making lines.

edited both html codes for the pictures, please include width="100%" to make the pictures scale nicely
Fex, is that from the House on a Rock?
Ahh it is, tis a very beautiful place. The infinity room is very "cool."
Click the picture, it's geocoded so you can see where exactly it was taken, I try to do that with most all my pictures. Also in case you are too lazy to look up Fallingwater on the web: Link
What a wonderful work of art, Frank Lloyd Wright has several masterpieces in and around Chicago as well :)
Want hi-res picture of that OB! gimme link!

Mont Saint Michel, one of the most beautiful place you can ever visit. I was blessed and got to go there this summer, it was amazing.

I like Kevlar's picture.

Um, that's not House on the Rock. I've been there. That ain't it.
Yeah, that's Falling Water, another Frank Lloyd Wright. I've been to House on the Rock too Sut, I just confused the two.
That's my girlfriend, Nikki, and she's the most beautiful person I've ever met.
Oh I also forgot to mention: Kevlar, that picture of London is totally wickedly awesome. And Titan, those two pictures you posted are incredible.

If you guys have large versions, please feel free to post links. I have Windows Power Tools alternating wallpapers every 15 minutes. While I normally only use pics I've taken, I wouldn't mind adding some of these to the lineup.

"You can steal my piece o' crap..."
Hmm. Now that you say it, it does look somewhat like space poo. Pass.

Both pictures are taken by my girlfriend, in Renesse, The Netherlands. Yes, that's me in the top one. Too bad the time stamp is on there, but I like them a lot anyway. We've got some other really nice pictures, but these ones are the best, I think.

Inde, the first one. Explain why it looks like you're standing on water..
Inde's girlfriend proves he can walk on water!

This guy's site has a lot of beautiful pictures:

Bit late, but erm... it's actually very shallow there Flamey. With the light diminishing you can't actually see into the water, so it all looks equally deep. Plus, the photo was taking at a lower height, lol if you look closely you can see it, but there's a sandbank like twenty meters behind me. Because of the low height it looks like the water I'm standing in is connected to the sea, but it's just leftover tide :P
