This will make you flip out. Shocking new drone footage reveals a Wales marina is the spitting image of a dolphin, stunning viewers online. Photographer Rhys Jones was capturing images with his drone over Pwllheli, Wales, (Llŷn Peninsula, Gwynedd County) realizing for the first time that the UK harbor bears [a] resemblance to the beloved aquatic creature.

“In all my flight time over the Pwllheli harbor, I have never noticed this as much as last night. Spectacular! Once seen, it cannot be unseen. I have taken many photos of the beautiful area we live in. I have been over the marina many times but, only just noticed this amazing landscape on this occasion.”

Rhys Jones

For two years, Jones has used his drone to take photos as a hobby, flying over this marina several times and never noticing its mammalian shape. The photos made waves on his Facebook page, Pwllheli Drone Photos, this month.

Yeah. It’s a dead tree but, it seems like a nice artistic piece. The owner finally took it down about two months, ago. ~Vic

Shutterbug Saturday: Scenes From A ROT Rally 2006

Posted on Updated on

These shots were taken by my buddy and childhood friend, Hank…well, most of them. I grabbed the camera a couple of times. He shared these with me but, the copyright is all his. This was my first motorcycle rally and the first time I’d laid eyes on Hank in 20+ years. It was such a fun time and reunion and, the only time I have ever seen Joan Jett, live. “ROT” is short for “Republic of Texas”. The Rally suffered quite a bit during the plandemic and lost its regular venue in Austin. They are trying to make a comeback. ~Vic

Yep. This is me…several pounds heavier than today.
Notice my cute, pink Motorola flip-phone…

I was still issued to the Jarhead back then.

This is somewhat of a companion piece to Walsenburg and Fort Sumner. These were shots taken after we left Fort Sumner and were on our way to Walsenburg. We passed by the Raton-Clayton volcanic field, which includes the Capulin Volcano National Monument. The Marine was in a hurry to head north and wasn’t interested in stopping for a volcano. ~Vic
