There are more uncanny tricks of alignment and viewpoint at Buzzfeed's "24 photos you really need to look at to understand".
LOL Thanks, Napoleon.
This arty abstract fantasy world is a real landscape of Namibia.
"The eerie, long-exposure photo below captured the flames burning across Yosemite’s rolling hills."
Halloween! Scary costumes! But wait! The real world is even more scary. Check out these health workers in Sierra Leone.
To me this is surreal.
On a "lighter" note, Jude Redfield, a meteorologist at WDRB in Louisville, KY, made good use of greenscreen technology for his Halloween costume as an animated skeleton!

The crooked forest in Poland was created, not natural.
The Crooked Forest consists of more than 400 pine trees. The reason this forest is named “The Crooked Forest” is because of the unique shape of trees. All trees grow with a 90 degree bend near the base of the trunks.
This is not a freak of nature but rather some experiment of humans. Nobody knows why the trees were made to grow this way but it has been assessed that the trees were allowed to grow normally for the first few years and then held down with something heavy so that they would become crooked.
This explanation for the crooked forest of Gryfino, Poland, is undoubtedly true. However, there is a phenomenon in nature that indicates earth slump.
