Too big to include here, it's the largest indoor photograph, a 360 scrollable, zoomable image of the Strahov library in Prague. Just WOW.

Maybe not 'wow' but as a fan of Hanna-Barbera, I love this-

Again, not 'wow' but it's awesome and they don't belong in the 'Images that mke you lol' thread. Proof if any is needed that Chuck Jones was a legend-

I remember reading an interview with the guy that took this in a photography magazine last year and the rest of his pics were incredible

I saw an interview with Clark Little on Youtube recently and it seems his technique is to sit in the water with a waterproof camera which takes 9 frames a second waiting for a wave to break over him and he gets some stunning results. So maybe not so much skill but a lot of luck.

The space ones and the one taken inside the wave are amazing

[EDIT]

Or "beneath the wave" even.

This was in NatGeo a while back - Eyjfajeoufyajyayayjajykoekufaykuoell, I believe is its correct name.

This photo (it's my desktop, why did I not think of it sooner??):



Every point in this image is the location (co-ordinates) of a persons Facebook account, and every line is the relationship between Facebook members.

This isn't just a map of the world, it shows friendships and relationships of people all over the world. There's something quite amazing about that.

I do like that. There are quite a few pictures out there showing lightning during an eruption and I can remember seeing one of lightning next to a tornado which looked spectacular.

I can't find the one I was looking for.

also a nice 80 Gigapixel picture of London

You can even see a bloke eating an apple outside the British Museum.
