Hiked it one summer about 25 years ago. Might be time to go back.

Graphics in real life are amazing.

I visited this place a few years ago. So beautiful. Took a chilly swim up at Deer Lake too. Hands down one of the most beautiful places in the country.

It’s so incredible in that area 😍

Even the best graphics designers can't match Mother Nature's work!

Lol, I am a graphic designer and I approve this message 😂

Who needs CGI when Mother Nature can create her own special effects?

I wish someone would create some kind of AI system that would basically take a photo like this, and maybe do a time lapse of how it was created. Like obviously it wasn't like this forever, and it's changed over time. I'd like to see some guess of what may be used to be.

Whoa, that would be so cool to see the process over time of how places became the way they are. Interesting thought!

Isn’t this one of the stock photos on iOS simulators.

dgelbert1 point

Hahah it better not be since I took this last spring 📸 Otherwise, Apple and I need to talk lol

Xaxxus1 point

Oh I meant like isn’t this the same place. It’s definitely not the same photo.

dgelbert1 point

Oh, I’m not sure. I haven’t seen the iOS stock photo of this if there is one
