Amazing Photo of the Day »
We like photos of animals and nature, yes. However, man-made attractions are often amazing, too — especially if combined with nature, as is the case with Hayman Hotel.
Hayman Hotel is a luxury resort situated on the Great Barrier Reef on Hayman Island in Australia.…Read More »
We have seen lions. We have seen tigers. But we haven’t seen ligers.
A liger is the offspring of a male lion and female tiger. Because lions and tigers are in the same genus, they are able to technically breed with each other despite being different species.…Read More »
Out of all the animals featured on dotTech’s Amazing Photo of the Day segment, we have yet to cover gorillas. We have seen monkeys, but not gorillas. Want to see a gorilla? Okay, let’s.
Check out the photo below. (And, yes, according to the source it is a real photo and not photoshopped, although I suppose the source could have lied.) Can you guess what the gorilla is thinking?…Read More »
I know, I know. It must seem like I am obsessed with big cats. I’m not. I have just happened to stumbled upon interesting wild cat photos. Well, actually, today’s photo is hardly what you could call wild.
Have you ever had a family portrait taken?…Read More »
Some tigers enjoy a nice dinner date with humans. Then there is Gisa.
Gisa is a Siberian tigress that lives in a zoo at Duisburg, Germany. With Gisa lives Elroy, a hopeful suitor. Apparently Gisa does not like Elroy; when approached by Elroy, Gisa responded by showing her fangs.…Read More »
There is a stereotype that modern nations only exist in the North America and Europe, collectively known as “the West”. This stereotype couldn’t be more wrong. In fact, there is one city in the Middle East that has gained recognition as “the Las Vegas of the Middle East”, not only for its tourist culture but also for its modernity.…Read More »
Excellent photo of a busy airport at night allows you to see the movement of planes via lights [Amazing Photo of the Day]
These is a technique in photography called “long exposure” where the photographer allows the photo to be taken for an extended period of time as opposed to just capturing that one moment. Long exposure photography allows for stunning photos, if used properly.…Read More »
Any dotTechies have kids or raised kids? Then you probably know how some kids can throw pretty bad tantrums. I don’t have kids and haven’t raised any but I was (recently) a kid, so I kneely remember how I used to throw tantrums.…Read More »
At the risk of sounding like a
broken trashed record, I must say that here on dotTech we love featuring photos (or images, for those of you “that probably is not real” folk that get irked by me referring to Photoshopped art as photos) of animals in our daily Amazing Photo of the Day segment.…
Golden Eagle is a bird of prey. Red Fox is a omnivorous animal. If they go head to head, which would win a fight? The Golden Eagle with its air advantage and razor sharp claws? Or the Red Fox with its mobility and deadly bite?…Read More »
We sung a lot of songs in elementary school. Why? I don’t know. We just did. Anyone know that song that goes something like “I’ve got the whole world, in my hands. I’ve got the whole wide world, in my hands” etc.…Read More »
I’m pretty sure most, if not all, of us would be scared shitless if a small, baby crocodile was roaming free in our neighborhood. A 23 ft long croc? Yeah, you would probably be packing your things and heading the hell out (as I would).…Read More »
We have already seen the transparent balcony on the 103th floor of the Sears Tower in Chicago, Illinois USA. Want to see another photo from extreme heights? Then you have come to the right place.
As I’ve mentioned before, I’m scared of heights so just looking at the following photo made me semi-dizzy.…Read More »
Awesome photo shows “lenticular” clouds in the sky, could very well be UFOs [Amazing Photo of the Day]
When most people look up in the sky, they see normal, fluffy clouds. If you happen to live in an area with severe weather, you may be able to get a glimpse “mammutus” clouds, circular looking odd balls that appear due to severe weather conditions.…Read More »
Stunning aerial photo of New York City after Sandy shows a large part of the city in darkness [Amazing Photo of the Day]
Yesterday we saw a few photos of powerless New York City, in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy (or Storm Sandy, as some alliteration fans like to call it). While those photos are, without a doubt, great, they didn’t do a very good job of putting the situation into perspective.…Read More »
Hurricane Sandy wrecked havoc on Caribbean and Mid-Atlantic nations before making landfall and destroying everything in its path in the northwestern United States and parts of Canada. In total, it is estimated that Sandy caused $50 billion worth of damage… not counting the dozens of lives lost.…Read More »
Will the fascination of animals we humans have ever cease? Probably not. At least not for the time being because today I have yet another animal shot to show you. This one is about cheetahs and is a bit on the humorous side.…Read More »
It is hard to one-up yesterday’s amazing photo of a monk sharing his food with a tiger, so I’m not going to try. However, today’s photo is pretty awesome in its own, less-serious right. Today I have to share with you what is being dubbed a ‘kungfu frog’, or as I so elegantly put it in the title, a real frog that knows kungfu.…Read More »
We have seen animals before on dotTech’s Amazing Photo of the Day; in fact, we have seen plenty of animals. We have even seen animals on animal action, such as the case of elephant scaring the crap out of lions. We have not, however, yet seen a harmonious photo of animals and humans together.…Read More »
Back in September we saw Bojnice Castle located in Bojnice, Slovakia (Europe), a castle that looks like it came out of a fairy tale. Today I have another castle to share with you. The following castle, Alnwick Castle in Northumberland, England, may be more familiar to dotTechies than Bojnice because Alnwick is the castle that was shown as Hogwarts in Harry Potter movies.…Read More »
We have seen quite a few animal photos via dotTech’s Amazing Photo of the Day section. In particular, we have had multiple run-ins with lions, such as the Mufasa (Scar?) lookalike, the lions scared shitless of an elephant, and the lions and a cub.…Read More »
With the advent of LOLcats, memes, FAIL photos, etc. we have all probably come across hilarious animal images, particularly cats. (Why do people find cat images funny? I never understood that.) The following is a photo which I have no doubt could feature as a perfect LOLcat or meme image.…Read More »
See the awesome architecture of the Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles [Amazing Photo of the Day]
Designed by architect Frank Gehry, the Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles, California (USA) was designed and built to be one of the most acoustically sophisticated halls in the world. I’m not sure if it this acoustically friendly nature of the the hall that caused the hall to have such an awesome external design or if the architect just wanted to design a unique building; whatever the case maybe, the hall looks pretty amazing from the outside (I don’t know about the inside).…Read More »
Mount Roraima is a “tabletop” mountain located in South America. More specifically, Roraima is found in Venezuela’s Canaima National Park on the Guiana Shield, bordering Guyana and Brazil. Aside from its semi-unique shape (as you will see in the photo below, it is a flat mountain as opposed to the traditional peaks we think of), one of the most remarkable characteristics of Roraima is that, at an age of roughly two billion years, it is one of oldest geological formations on Earth.…Read More »
So far in dotTech’s Amazing Photo of the Day segment we have covered lions, cheetahs, monkeys, squirrels, turtles, elephants, birds, alligators, dolphins, and more lions. Do you know what (animal) we have not covered, yet? Okay, okay — there are many that we haven’t featured (yet).…Read More »
This is an absolutely stunning photo of the star-filled night sky above a beach [Amazing Photo of the Day]
In the past, dotTech has featured one or two night sky or star photos in our daily Amazing Photo of the Day segment. However, I have yet to come across (and thus I have yet to share) a photo of the night sky that is as stunning and — dare I risk losing man points by saying it — beautiful photo as the photo I have to share today.…Read More »
Remarkable photo shows “mammatus” clouds above Canada, clouds with round bottoms [Amazing Photo of the Day]
When you look up in the sky, what do you see? Clouds, maybe. While it sounds a bit odd because of how we think of clouds as three dimensional figures, the clouds you see in the sky typically have “flat” bottoms.…Read More »
You know why Google is successful? Data. You know what Google needs to manage and store that data? Data centers. Have you ever seen inside a Google data center? Probably not, unless you work at one or you worked for the contractor that built one.…Read More »
This is an awesome inflatable trampoline bridge, designed by a French architecture firm [Amazing Photo of the Day]
I’m not much of a bridge person. Sure, they are useful when you need to cross a body of water but they aren’t something I wet my bed over… if you get what I mean. (Clearly, I’m not fit to be an engineer.) However, a bridge made of three, large inflatable trampolines?…Read More »
Who invented the camera? Man. We don’t really know which man, specifically, so the concept of camera is attributed to a developed innovation over the long years of human history. Did you think cameras are only for humanoids? If so, think again.…Read More »
A photographer by the name of Colleen Pinski wanted to capture awesome photographs of the solar eclipse that occurred on May 20 earlier this year. So she hopped in her car and traveled from Colorado, Denver, to Albuquerque, New Mexico (roughly 370 miles).…Read More »
We have seen tornado. We have seen lightning. We have seen fire (sort of). But we haven’t yet seen tornado, lightning, and fire all in the same place at the same time. That will change… now.
The following photograph, which includes a combination of a tornado, lightning, and fire, is of Puyehue Chile on June 5, 2011.…Read More »
Okay, today I have something to share with you that is mind boggling and interesting at the same time. The following are photographs of the Rain Room, an exhibit put together by Random International at the Curve gallery in the Barbican in London.…Read More »
Ever see in the movies those cameras that secretly shoot a bullet? You know, the ones often used to assassinate people. Yeah, well, today I have something similar to show you today albeit it is a bit less devious.
The following is a photograph of a camera gun, as imagine by Australian artist Adam Wheatley.…Read More »
We have shared photos of 3D art with you all in the past before, such as the batman symbol and the alligator pit. Today we are going to share more 3D art with you; this time around the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are featured on the streets of London’s Southbank.…Read More »
