For 14 years, photographer Sergio Tapiro took over 300,000 photos of Mount Colima. Then, it finally erupted. “This picture is a gift that nature has given to me. When I saw the camera display I was shocked, I didn’t believe it.”

This looks like a CGI scene from dystopian futuristic sci-fi film but it’s actually a street in Macau with a casino looming behind it.

I had a great issue of Nat Geo with pictures of the Kowloon Walled City in it which were similarly mesmerising. The casino behind in that shot really does look like something out of Independence Day though.

Knowing it's real, I'm still struggling to believe it's real.

In the context of the Macau casino district it doesn’t look so alien. It’s the juxtaposition that is so alarming. Likewise the out of focus and different exposure makes it look unreal. It reminds me of those Simon Stålenhag paintings.

I agree, the subject matter in that photo is largely irrelevant apart from the fact it is real. It is a very very good (ace even) photo and as such it's amazing.

Yeah, it looks so alien that I had to google to see what it looks like from different angles, to reassure myself it was real.
