This image hit my Facebook stream last Saturday.

Of course, I had to do some research to make sure it wasn’t a photoshop. It’s real and located in Lancashire, England. As soon as I saw it, it reminded me of a a guilty pleasure of mine, Reign of Fire, which took place in London. According to Rotten Tomatoes, neither the critics nor audience liked it, though Metacritic users liked it. I was disappointed that the article to which I linked didn’t mention Reign of Fire, instead stating, it looked “like a scene out of Indiana Jones or a J.R.R. Tolkien novel,” but I’m not surprised. What’s really interesting about it is that it’s an optical illusion, or at least a trick of the camera lens. It’s actually a flat surface.

Still a cool thing.
