One thought on “Extraordinary photos

  1. Recently this thread of images started making its way around the web. One of them, the two oceans merging in Skagen, is actually my shot I took while in Alaska, the opposite side of the globe from where the original poster claims it comes from. You can read all about it here [http://www.flickr.com/photos/kentsmith9/4955772693/] . It is amazing how far an image will travel on the web with the wrong information.
