Aha! I have found the "Tulip Stairs, Kyoto, Japan." So the mismatched text with the volcanic island in Crater Lake, Oregon, was clearly a case of cut-and-paste gone wrong. HOWEVER, while this may partly be Japan (it certainly looks like a mountain path in Japan) note that the trees are perfectly identical on both sides, and the tulips are (BADLY) photoshopped in. So: hunt down a false attribution and end up finding the correct one... on a fake photo! It's neverending, I tell you.

Why this is going around called "Tulip Stairs, Kyoto, Japan" is beyond me. "Tulip Stairs"? I can't help but think it's a textual cut-and-paste that went horribly wrong. At any rate, this awesome place is called (more appropriately) the Phantom Ship, in Crater Lake, Oregon. Google it. There are some spectacular views.

This is going around called "Tulip Stairs, Kyoto, Japan," which is wrong. (Not to mention, kind of silly.) At any rate, this awesome place is called (more appropriately) the Phantom Ship, in Crater Lake, Oregon. Google it. There are some spectacular views.

This is, in fact, the Island of Molokini, between Maui & Kahoolawe, Hawaii. But the star is a Photoshop creation made up of parts of the real crescent island. It is a hoax image that has been going around for several years now. There are many incredible caldera islands in the world, and this is one of them. Click through for images of the real, and still beautiful, island. Or find it in Google Maps.

Island of Molokini - Although this picture has been circulating in the internet over years and is an hoax, but only the star. The "moon" is the Island of Molokini, located between the islands of Maui and Kahoolawe, Hawaii. Its crescent shape forms a beautiful lagoon inside, which is home to about 250 species of fish, some of which can be found nowhere else on Earth and there is great snorkeling here. Too bad cause I love stars.
Five Travel Photos That Are Fake
The crested owl comes in many shades, but I'm relatively sure none of them are purple. I'm not even sure if I'm convinced by the green of the original, but think it could be a light grey, and the colour balance of the photo gave it a greenish cast. Or even the reflected green from the leaves . The photo was taken in dark conditions with a one-second exposure, and colours in long exposures tend to be exaggerated or somewhat altered. Most other photos of the species appear to be a fine owl brown.
Seen this one around? Ian McKellen was involved in a march to protest homophobia in the Catholic church, and was wearing a "Some People are Gay. Get Over It" T-shirt like many other protesters. The rest of the story can be read in the photoshopper's own words on his website, and no one was as surprised as him by what followed. Click through for it.
Black lions would definitely be gorgeous, if there were such a thing. Unfortunately, the only known black lions to date have been found roaming the Great Savannah of Photoshop, where they look very majestic indeed. (Click through for a few more of the manipulated big cats that have been appearing on Tumblr and other sites.)

UN-natural - there are no black lions in nature. This is a widely-circulated Photoshop fake; see other Photoshopped "black lion" pictures circulating on the web, & read the story behind this pic ~ http://karlshuker.blogspot.com/2012/06/black-lions-manipulation-melanism-and.html Or check Snopes.com or other urban myth sites. Don't believe everything you see on the interwebz, lol!
Those black lions AREN'T real people! They aren't real lions either. But I've seen these doctored images depicted as real on "big cat" boards.

Some photoshop math: Benagil Cave in Algarve, Portugal + the Pantheon = the photo going around called the "Temple of Lysistrata". But the cave in Portugal is so stunning, and there are so few photos, I had begun to wonder if it was fake as well. However, it turns out to be quite real, and you'll find a few more photos if you search for "Gruta de Benagil". Also, the roof opening can be seen in Google Maps (and you'll have to search yourself, since Pinterest is stupidly blocking the link.

Digital rendering of Martian crater Schiaparelli with low Sun. This absolutely astounding image is accurate in every detail, but not an actual photo. It is a computer rendering made using landscape data collected on Mars by the Mars Orbiter Laser Altimeter (MOLA). But a perfectly plausible view, nonetheless.

Neat. But no. This is not Ireland. It is Thailand. I've seen it myself. Sadly, there is no magic castle up there, although there might be a secret spy lair inside. Nail Island is more popularly known to the tourist touts as "James Bond Island" because it was featured in a Bond film. The "before" photo (not the exact one, though) is from someone called Wondering Wandering Wanderer. The castle part, which I hope to one day see, is the very famous Lichtenstein Castle in Austria... or part of it.

This is not in Ireland, Dublin. Actually it doesn't exist as one. The rock is in Thailand and the castle is only a portion of Lichtenstein Castle (which is in Germany). There is a claim on the Internet along with the claim that "Castle House Island" is a real place in Dublin, Ireland. It's actually "James Bond Island" in Khao Phing Kan, Thailand. The castle was placed on the photo using Photoshop. So moral of the day, don't believe everything you see on the internet ;)

Dublin, Ireland,,, Castle house island. Yes, this place exists.
Awesome place in Ireland. HAHAHA i have seen this in another picture and it said "the best zombie Apocalypes hide out ever!!"
Yeah, this one is a real... stretch. It didn't look right from the start. As if mountains with lenticular clouds aren't amazing enough! As it turns out, it is a somewhat less precipitous volcano at Klyuchevskaya Sopka in Russia, a photo taken by Ivan Dementievskiy.

No, this is not the sunrise at the north pole with the moon at its closest. During a solar eclipse, the moon barely covers the sun or appears smaller. If anything, the north pole is technically further from the moon. Not closer. There is no possible way the moon can ever appear this much larger than the sun. Not on this planet, at least. The image is a very lovely digital creation called "Hideaway" by a German astrophysics student named Inga Nielsen.

Giovedì, 13 marzo 2011. Tramonto al Polo Nord , la luna è al suo punto più vicino con la Terra - Thursday, March 13th 2011. This is sunset at the North Pole with the moon at its closest point to the Earth.
Sunset at the North Pole -- This is one of the rarest pictures that you will ever see, when the moon was closest to the earth. The date the picture was taken Thursday, the 13th. of March 2011. A scene you will probably never get to see in person, so take a moment and enjoy God at work at the North Pole. You also see the sun below the moon, an amazing photo and not one easily duplicated.
This is going round posted as "Sea Cave, Malta." Or "Macry Cave in Greece." After looking into it, it does appear to be Macry's Cave, but the photo, while not exactly fake, is a panoramic shot. The hole at the top is not really at the top, more at the back. The cave has a large entrance and the roof inside has collapsed. So the hole is actually the roof and/or back of the cave. Click through for a more "normal" view of it.
