    #18 matterhorn switzerland


    • Spankster

      Isn't that where three tectonic plates meet up to form the Matterhorn Peak?

      If so, AWESOME!

      • mitch

        just 2 plates. In facts the top of this mountain is african plate and the base is leurasian (Europe). But that's for the most of the Alps

  • MigraineBoy

    #8 #10 I want to live there.

    • Goob

      #8 is up side down

  • Willy

    Hey chive, could you post the locations of these places?

    • Claire

      Number 4 is Edinburgh, you can see the castle in the background.

      • JimF

        SECONDED! Post the locations if known!
        #2? #10? #16 – is this Butchart Gardens, Victoria BC?

    • rbradburn

      #15 is Pyramid Mountain, Jasper Park, Canada.

  • A C

    #1 is the Chateau de Chillon on Lake Geneva in Switzerland. #3 is Hallstatt in Austria. #4 MIGHT be Edinburgh, but might not. #18 is the Matterhorn.

    • fred

      I can confirm 4. is Edinburgh.

    • Didily

      #4 IS Edinburgh, it's taken from Calton Hill

    • ñlkj

      #2 and #6 look like bob ross

    • Hoovus

      Hallstatt has got to be one of the most beautiful places I've ever been to.

    • mrjimmyos

      I thought #3 was Berchtesgaden in Germany?

  • Pufffdragon

    Wars and shit aside. This planet is Awesome!!

  • chuck

  • xXbeermonkeyXx

    seriously, thechive has to put these galleries up in ultraHQ to make these into good wallpapers. not the page itself, but maybe as a zip with all the pics at the end of the page. pretty please?

    Why is picture 8 upside down? I had to rotate my shit 180 degrees to make sure I wasn’t crazy.

  • Saraheleanor

    • IDrinkToMuch

    • _Moose_

      Lord Byron did some funky stuff there. I used to live near there, too.

      • Evariste

        Well… not only Byron… Miles Davis, Deep Purple and BB King too!!! ;-)

        • _Moose_

    Thanks Chive for reminding me of how boring and lame it is here in the city….

  • Mokuseitora

    All these pictures are shopped… our Earth could never look as good as this…

    • ROK247

      don't let the greenie hippie human-haters fool you – there is much beauty out there still.

    • DrVonnSinistro

      it look shopped cause they use a process called HDR just like in games.

  • Kentexas Curt

    I can't believe that I've actually been to some of these places!

    • Larik
